Obituary

Bertha Melvin (Dudley) Hinton, 78, passed away at St. David’s Medical Center in Round Rock, Texas on Saturday, June 12, 2021.

She was born on June 17, 1942 in Norfolk, Virginia to the late Bertha Mae (Wallace) Dudley and Washington Dudley, Sr.

Bertha grew up and attended grade school in Norfolk, Virginia and graduated from Booker T. Washington High School. Afterwards, she matriculated to Norfolk State University, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Sciences degree in Elementary Education in 1965.

Bertha taught school in Norfolk, Virginia for 5 years, teaching grades one through three as well as kindergarten in the summers. She was a dedicated educator, taking enrichment courses in Early Childhood Education and Child Psychology while teaching, and attending Wayne State University as a graduate student in the summer of 1968. She was a rising star in education and took tremendous pride in her students until she married into the military and moved to Tacoma, Washington in 1970.

She gave birth to her first and only child, Clarence C. Hinton III, in 1973. While raising her child and attending to the rigorous duties of being a military wife, Bertha remained active in child development and community enrichment. She volunteered her time generously to the various schools her son attended, served as a Den Leader in the Cub Scouts for several years and was even the Mayor of North Main Post at Ft. Benning Georgia.

In time, Bertha returned to her first love of elementary education before retiring and moving to Texas to be closer to her son and his family.

Bertha is survived by her son, Clarence C. (Jana) Hinton III, four grandchildren, Jacey Lane Hinton, Chase Cullen Hinton, Sloan Bella Hinton, and Chance Calix Hinton, a brother, Washington Dudley, Jr. and leaves cherished memories behind for a host of family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her sister, Verna Yvonne Dudley.

A funeral service in memory of Bertha will be held on Friday, June 25 at 11:00 a.m. at Graves Funeral Home. Interment will follow in the family plot at Calvary Cemetery.
