Mrs. Rountree was born July 8, 1924 in Metter, GA to the late Lundy and Mary Lou Moore Sutton.  Lovingly called “Nanny Bert”, she worked at Twin City Manufacturing Co., and was Manager of Emanuel County Institute Lunchroom for over 20 years.  She loved gardening, flower grafting camellias and daylilies.  She was always willing to share with others; was an excellent cook and baker, passing that love on to her children and grandchildren.  Mrs. Rountree was well-known for her homemade quilts and her excellent china painting skills.  She loved her hometown and her E.C.I. school, always attending baseball games when able.  Most of all, she loved her family, church and friends.  She was an  active member of the Twin City United Methodist Church for over sixty years; and a member of the United Methodist Women.  She was happiest working in her flower garden, sitting on the pond dam in her chair catching catfish, and playing cards with the Thursday Night Card Club.  In addition to her parents, Mrs. Rountree was preceded in death by her husbands, Leon Thorne and Hugh V. Rountree, and a sister, Louise Calvert.

With Berta, we always were happy to recall different events in our Sunday school class. Her views were always comforting to everyone, and we (like you) will miss her a lot.
