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.

On August 19, 1965 she married Allen Jerry Herden and added four boys to her family; Jerry, David, Mark and Carl.

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. That took them to Wyoming again then Oregon and finally to return to Montana. They settled in Park City and retired there when health issues developed.

Allen left her on February 21, 2019, to go solo for the first time in many years.

On Friday, April 19, 2019 with daughter Ricki, granddaughter Shelby and great-granddaughter Brooke at her side she left us to join Allen in their final long haul.

She is proceeded in death by her parents, Ted and Gertrude, sisters: Mary, Nelle, Jean, Elsie, Della and Carol, son Davey, daughter Evelyn, brother-in-law Bruce Herden, father-in-law & mother-in-law Carl and Martha Herden.
