Bert Clem Jurgensen has passed this life to live with her Lord and Savior in heaven on May 25, 2017. She was born March 3, 1930 to the late Russell & Grace (Laird) Clem. She was married to the late Henry T. Jurgensen. She leaves behind her children Gail (David) McAleer, Bill (Charlotte) Mitchell and Mark (Robin) Mitchell. Berts surviving siblings are Betty Starr, Russell (Gerry) Clem, Bill (Judy) Clem & Shirley Knee. She was actively involved in her grandchildrens lives. They are Benjamin (Carol) Byrket, Bricey (Adam Watson) Michin, Blair Byrket, Macey (Romulus Ignat) McAleer & Justin (Kelly) McAleer. Her great grandchildren Madison & Emily Byrket, Annie & Gracie Machin, Adam Watson Jr., Liam & Evie McAleer and Lyra Ignat brought her so much joy. Bert leaves behind her special friend from her North Carolina church, Miss Jessie Brown. Bert attended Victory Church in Raleigh, NC where she made her home with Gail and David the last 3 years of her life.
Bert impacted so many people in her lifetime. She was simply the best. Bert was an avid golfer, fisherman, and all around outdoorsman. She was in her element when she was putzing around the yard and the garden. Berts Christian faith was fundamental in her life and we know she is at peace now that she has met her maker.
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.
