Amy Margaret Bertus, the youngest of five children, was born January 30, 1926 on a ranch near Brooks, MT to Charles and Ottilie Sebek. She attended grade school at the Folda Country School in Brooks and Fergus County High School in Lewistown, MT.
After graduating in 1943, she attended Eastern Montana College and then taught school in Brooks until she was united in marriage to Clifford Warren Bertus on January 9, 1945 in Lewistown.
They spent a year in Bozeman while her husband Cliff attended Montana State University. At this time their daughter Trish was born. They returned to Lewistown where Amy lived most of her life.
She was a wonderful mom and homemaker but also worked many years as a waitress. During part of this time she owned and operated her own restaurant “The Coffee Cup” in Lewistown for several years. She worked hard all her life but always had time for her family and friends.
After her husband Cliff died, she continued to live in Lewistown to care for her children, grandchildren and friends. They still comment about how comfortable it was to be with her.
After retirement Amy moved to Great Falls to be closer to her two children. She continued to keep herself busy especially working as a Foster Grandparent for the Loy School which is near Malmstrom Air Force Base. All of the children and staff loved “Grandma Amy.” She was able to celebrate her 93rd birthday with all of them.
