  • Notes 
    • Berta Kingston died Monday, February 3, 2003, at Covenant Hospital in Lubbock, TX. Berta Kingston was born August 20, 1924, in Hainsfart, Germany, to Willi and Marta Ausfhauser. During the Holocaust, in 1938, when Berta was 14 years old, her parents saved her life by securing a seat for her on one of only three children's transports to Manchester, England, where the children lived in foster homes. Unfortunately, Berta's parents were unable to leave Germany. In England Berta worked for a munitions shop which made parts for submarines. In 1946 Berta's relatives in New York sent for her. While there she was employed by a beauty shop during the week and a bakery on weekends. Two years later she met Arthur Kingston. They were married in Carlsbad, NM on July 4, 1948, and have lived there ever since. She worked at Jackson Drug Company for over 20 years, followed by employment for approximately 15 years at the Gerrells' Family stores and, finally, during her last years, at Dunlap's. Berta and Arthur Kingston received Carlsbad's most prestigious honor for dedication to community services, the Carlsbad Humanitarian Award, in 1990. Also, on December 29, 1990, Berta was the New Mexico Quality Recipient of the Cancer Society award for over 30 years of service in Carlsbad's"Reach to Recovery" program. Actually, Berta and Art have dedicated their lives here to helping others. Berta has been an active board member of the Carlsbad Community Concerts Association for many years and has assisted her husband in preparing and serving meals at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #3277. In this short space it is impossible to list even a portion of this exceptional woman's good deeds. She is survived by her husband, Art of the family home; their only child, Bill Kingston and fiance, Elisa of Albuquerque; grandchildren, Danny Kingston and wife, Leslie of Fort Worth, Jordan, Alexandra, and Taylor of Albuquerque; and numerous relatives include those in Carlsbad, the United States, parts of Europe, and in Israel.
