Bertha Darlene Herden was born July 5, 1939 to Theodore Jennings and Gertrude Aldene Moore at
home up Owl Creek outside of Thermopolis Wyoming. She joined half sisters Mary, Nelle, Jean and Elsie. She would be big sister to Della, Joan, Floyd and Carol.

She had two daughters, Evelyn Anita Denniston August 1956, Ricki Varie Slane in November 1957 and son, Richard "Davey" Slane in August 1959.

They lived briefly in Wyoming and Idaho before coming to Montana. They farmed, ranched in Billings, Park City and Laurel. When they were done with farming they went into trucking.
