Las Cruces Sun-News", 24-25 Oct 2010:  Bertha J. Lucero Nester, a precious woman and mother, went home to be
.                                   with her Savior on October 16th, 2010. She was incredible! Bertha was born and raised in Las Cruces, and graduated
.                                   from Las Cruces Union High School. She was married in the Main Street St. Genevieve's Catholic Church to Harold
.                                   A. Nester, her husband of 52 years. Bertha and Harold raised 8 children all while working full time as a legal secre-
.                                   tary. She is survived by her children, which include her son Charles, and wife Peggy Nester of Broken Arrow, Okla-
.                                   homa; son Fred Nester of Tulsa, Oklahoma; son-in-law Dan and wife Janet Kinzer of El Segundo, California; daugh-
.                                   ter Teri and husband Russ Weber of Ventura, California; daughter Cindy and husband Tom Bell of San Marcus, Cal-
.                                   fornia; daughter Rene and husband Jim Viera of Ventura, California; son David and wife Debbie of Corona, Cali-
.                                   fornia; and daughter Lorie and husband Brent Osborne of Merlin, Oregon.  She always managed to love each one of
.                                   us, including her 19 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren, in such a very special way, so that each one of us felt
.                                   as though we were very unique and special. She is also survived by two sisters, Rosalie Fierro of Las Cruces, and
.                                   Patricia Carrillo of Mesa, Arizona, along with numerous nieces and nephews. Bertha was an avid reader and sports
.                                   fanatic. Kobe has lost his greatest fan. The legacy she leaves can never be bought; one of unconditional love, always
.                                   putting others before herself. No words can describe how much she will be missed.  She was preceded in death by her
.                                   parents, Jose B. Lucero and Bertha Bombach Lucero; 2 brothers, 7 sisters; her husband Harold Nester, who passed
.                                   away November 19, 2000; and her daughter Nina Kinzer, who passed away in 1987. Cremation has taken place and
.                                   an internment has been completed at the National Cemetery in Riverside, California.

.                                   Phelps.  This mistakenly says that Ernest H. Nester d Sep 1978 Hattiesburg, Miss, which was the death date for his
.                                   second cousin
Ernest Lee Nester (#A522).
