Bertha Lillie Aspinall [Aspinwall] (18 Nov 1887-14 Apr 1971) was born in Covington, Ohio, moved to Wilder, Idaho in 1910 to marry her high school sweetheart Glenn Maurice Eidemiller (1888-1972). They created a successful fruit farm out of sagebrush and raised their children there and later, with their three adult sons, recently returned from war service, moved again in 1948 to a new farm in Madras, Oregon. They are both buried in Mt. Jefferson Memorial Park, Madras, Oregon.
