Obituary for Bertha H. Guajardo

July 21, 1921 - November 26, 2017
San Antonio, Texas | Age 96


Grace. Beauty. Elegance. These words describe Bertha Herrera Guajardo.

After graduating from Breckenridge High School, she went to work as an accountant for Emiliano Escobedo at the Escobedo Creamery located at the corner of Salinas and Trinity. After WWII, she married the love of her life and childhood sweetheart, Justo Guajardo. They operated J.G. Drug Stone located at the corner of Guadalupe St. and Navidad. When Justo decided to return to the university to complete his college education, Bertha became the manager, bookkeeper and inventory manager of the store.

They traveled extensively throughout Mexico with their only child, Yolanda. They traveled throughout the United States, cruised to Alaska and traveled to Europe. One Christmas Justo, Bertha, Yolanda and son-in-law, Paul, went to Costa Rica.

She is survived by her daughter, Yolanda and son-in-law, Paul Zini.
Yolanda and Paul want to give special thanks to Bertha's caregiver, Margarita Salinas and the Salinas family for the love and care that they extended to Bertha.

The family will receive friends from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m., Saturday, December 2, 2017, at Porter Loring Mortuary North.
