Caters to Multitude
Hollywood, Cal., July 31, (By
Margaret Prince Hubert for ANP)—
Mrs. Bertha L. Turner of Pasadena,
Cal., formerly of Indianapolis, Indi
ana, is considered the leading cater- '
ess not only at Pasadena but of
Southern California as well as among
About 20 years ago, Mrs. Turner
conceved the idea of building up her
present business when her husband
was dismissed from the employ of an
j exclusive catering establishment in
Pasadena because white neighbors ob
jected to the family occupying a
lovely home they had purchased.
Mrs. Turner determined to establish
a business enterprise of her own
which has grown to such propor
tions that 50 or 60 persons are em
ployed either part time or full time
to carry on the work.
Her employees include, besides
waiters and waitresses, a house
keeper, a bookeeper, chauffeur and
gardner. She is affectionately called
the * Life Saver” among her help,
Mrs. Turner is held in the highest
esteem by the citizens of Pasadena of
both races. She is a member of the
Pasadena Chamber of Commerce.
Few people know that she is a silent
partner in a prominent dairy and ice
cream company of Southern Cali
fornia. Among her investments and
holdings are a heavy interest in the
Pasadena Gas Co., five or six valu
able homes and the Raymond Flats
in Indianapolis. Two delivery trucks,
three cars, a Nash and Packard,
among them are kept busy trans
During the summer season, Mrs.
Turner has charge of the concession
at Hollywood Bowl while the famous
Symphonies under the stars are be
Despite her busy career, Mrs.
Turner has kept her interests in the
social and religious world alive, for
■he is a prominent club woman, an
active church member and a charm
ing hostess as many persons who
have enjoyed her hospitality can
Many boys and girls have been
helped through school and other
worthy persons have been assisted in
so quiet and unassuming way by her
that the world does not know of it.
She gives freely and effectively
! where she deems it will do the most
good. There is hardly a family in
Pasadena but that can not rtcall some
k.ndly act of Mrs. Turner at a time
when there was distress, or sickness,
Truly she has achieved success,
for she has “lived well, laughed of
ten and loved much.”
