Bertha Lee "Bert" (Seadler) Senn, 96, of Floyds Knobs, Indiana, passed away on Sunday, March 8, 2020. Bert was a member of St. Mary's Navilleton Catholic Church and was known as the "city girl turned farm wife" who enjoyed farming and working alongside her late husband. She was a family-oriented woman who loved cooking and caring for her family and was known for playing in a game of cards or horseshoes. In her later years, she could be found sitting on her front porch waving to the passers-by and welcomed anyone who wanted to stop by to sit and talk awhile.

Along with her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband, James Albert Senn, Sr.; siblings, Paul Seadler, Mary Catherine Steinmetz, Bernice Hairgrove, Rita Rothgerber, Charles Seadler, Bint Seadler, and Carmel Seadler.
Bert is survived by her loving children, James "Jim" (Carolyn) Senn, Jr., Rosemary (Bob Geswein) Barmore, Bertha "Bert" (Gene) Russel, Francis "Frank" (Connie) Senn, Thomas "Tom" (Karyn) Senn, and Bernard "Bernie" (Karin) Senn; brothers, Herman (Ruth) Seadler, Don (Beverly) Seadler, and Richard "Dick" (Mary Frances) Seadler; 20 grandchildren; and 33 great-grandchildren.
