Rogers Sr.; her son, Alfred W. Rogers Jr.; her parents; siblings, Leonel Guerra, Ernestina Cavazos, Ciro Guerra, Guadalupe G. Castro, and Ruben Guerra.

Bertha was a graduate of McAllen High School and later worked for Charles Clark Chevrolet and assisted her husband Alfred W. Rogers Sr. with his business endeavors in Finance and Tourism.

Bertha also lived to serve as an example to her children by being active in her community, performing her civic duty as a voting poll watcher, and living a life of service before self-interest.

the hearts and cherished memories of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Bertha was a beloved wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and aunt.
