Bertha was born on August 19, 1947 in EncarnaciĆ³n de Diaz, Jalisco, Mexico to Luis and Consuelo ZermeƱo. She had been a Fillmore resident for 71 years. Bertha was a caring and giving person. While in High School she took a year off of school to care for her sick mother until she passed away.
Bertha was a very successful businesswoman. She started a farm labor contractor business with her husband, Benjamin Delara, and played an integral part in its success.
Family meant everything to her. She was happiest when she was spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved celebrations and, as a great cook, would always make sure that no one left hungry.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Luis Romo ZermeƱo and Consuelo Lozano ZermeƱo; brothers, Gustavo ZermeƱo, Luis ZermeƱo and Jose ZermeƱo.
