Lamar, Bertha Elizabeth (Everly) 6 Sep 1914 - 20 Apr 2006 SN-L 2 May 2006

Bertha Elizabeth Lamar, the daughter of Elmer and Gladys (McIntosh) Everly, was born on September 6, 1914, in the log cabin that her great-grandfather built when he came home from the Civil War, and where her grandfather and father were also born. On April 28, 2006, she passed away in her home, at the age of 91. Bertha was raised in a Christian home and gave her heart to Jesus when she was nine years old. Bertha stated, "As the oldest child I resented some of the responsibilities I had to assume. At times I was extremely stubborn, adamantly refusing to be obedient. Being a regular attendant at church, I knew that someday I would have to make a decision about yielding my life to Christ. I felt guilt about my stubbornness and just couldn't sleep as I should. One night I just got out of bed, knelt and gave my life to God, promising to follow in all ways but especially asking help to overcome my problems. Then I made a public profession at our next revival, and was baptized in a creek when the weather got warmer. Being a Christian means letting Jesus be Lord of my life. It means striving to be Christ-like in all things. It means being able to walk in direct communication with God. It means being able to let others see Jesus in me." For many years she was a faithful member of Grant Avenue Baptist Church, where she was a Sunday School teacher, worked in the nursery, sang in the choir, and was a member of the Women's Missionary Union. In January 1937, Bertha was united in marriage with Edward L. Lamar and to this union five children were born. She was a devoted mother. Her children remember the songs she sang, the stories she told that passed on her heritage, the things she taught them about living-to always do your best and look for the positive in everything but most of all the way she lived that showed them God's love. For 30 years she was active in the Ozark Dogwood Trails Council of the Girl Scouts. She worked as a leader and trainer and served as Second Vice President of the council. During her free time, she enjoyed working with roses, writing poetry, sewing, crafts, gardening, working with herbs and plants. She also enjoyed reading and was an excellent cook. Bertha is survived by two sons, John and his wife, LaVonna, of Kansas City, Missouri, and Joe Lamar, of Republic; two daughters, Barbara Morgan and her husband, Von, of Ozark and Harriet List and her husband, Rick, of Branson; one son-in-law, Thomas Shane, of Ozark; 16 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren and nine great-great-grandchildren. She is also survived by four sisters-in-law, two brothers-in-law, many cherished nieces, nephews and cousins and a host of treasured friends, especially those at Franciscan Villa where she resided for the past eight years. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, one daughter, Marlene Shane, three grandchildren, one brother and two sisters. Funeral services will b e2 p.m. Wednesday, May 3, 2006, in the chapel of Thieme-Shadel Funeral Service at White Chapel. Interment will follow in White Chapel Memorial Gardens. The family will receive friends from 1 p.m. until service time on Wednesday. In her honor, memorials may be made to the St. John's Hospice House, 1378 E. Republic Road, Springfield, Missouri 65804, or may be left with the funeral home. Even though she lived alone for the past 16 years, Bertha was always quick to say, "I really don't live alone, God is always there with me. We have good talks, my Lord and I. He is my total peace and happiness." Bertha will be deeply missed by her family until they join her in her wonderful Heavenly home.
