Bertie Jean Via, 89, of Scottsville, passed away July 8, 2021 at the home of her granddaughter. She was born October 26, 1931 to Sam and Lucinda Via in Rockfish, VA. She leaves to cherish her memory, her children, Linda Ponton of Arrington, Naomi Adcock (Melvin), and Robert Via (Ann), both of Scottsville; sister, Mary Bishop of South Carolina; daughter-in-law, Beverly Via of Pennsylvania; 11 grandchildren; 15 great grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Via; long time companion, Lindsay Martin; son, Carl Lee Via; son-in-law, Mike Ponton; and 7 siblings.
Her family was her life. We will forever hold in our heart’s memories of Sunday dinners, holiday meals, homemade biscuits, and her quilts and afghans.
We are so thankful for Amanda and Marshall Shumaker with whom she lived for the past 6 months and for Lucy Ponton who helped care for her.
Mama will be cremated according to her wishes. There will be no formal visitation or funeral.
