March 15, 1999
Proud of her Bothell heritage (her great-grandparents were Mary Ann and David Bothell), she was a longtime member of the Bothell Historical Society. Also, she has been honored for her 50 years as an Eastern Star member. As a 1931 graduate of BHS, she proudly supported the Bothell High School Alumni Association as a lifetime member. At the 1996 BHS homecoming, she was the Association's Honored Alumnus for her devotion and commitment to the community. She and her late husband, Jim, owned the General Petroleum Gas Station in Bothell and later the Bothell Hardware Store on Main St.
Remembrances may be made to the BHS Alumni Association Scholarship Fund, P.O. Box 298, Bothell, WA 98041, or the Bothell Historical Society, P.O. Box 313, Bothell, WA 98041.
Following the memorial, her daughter and son-in-law, Hal, and son, Jim Berto and his wife, Pat, invite friends and family to celebrate Mrs. Berto's life at the "farm" on Riverside Drive.
Mrs. Frost was born in Sisseton, South Dakota. She became a registered nurse in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and married Arthur H. Frost in September 1949. She was a resident of Mercer Island for 30-plus years and head appraiser for "Emmy's Attic," a non-profit organization dedicated to community service from 1968 to 1998, when it closed. For this service, the city of Mercer Island gave her their Community Service Award and Mercer Island Rotary honored her with their Certificate of Appreciation in January 1999. Mrs. Frost was a past president of the Mercer Island Visual Arts League and a Bellevue Arts Fair volunteer.
She is survived by her husband of 49 years, Arthur; two daughters, Randy and her husband Ron Profit and Vicki and her husband Craig Cornelius; grandchildren Jaimee, Teddi and her husband Andy, and Kyle, Andrea and Rebecca; great-grandchildren, Kelsey and Dezarae; sister, Olive Schneider and brother, Milton Eiku.
