Bertha S. (Miethe) Perrault

Bertha S. (Miethe) Perrault, 102, of Mattapoisett died peacefully in her home on July 10, 2021, where she was under the care of her loving daughters.

She was the wife of the late Edward A. Perrault and daughter of the late Bernard and Bertha (Ochs) Miethe.

            Bertha was a city girl, born and raised in Boston. She travelled the country by train as a young woman and worked in the Insurance industry until her marriage. She and Ed moved to Mattapoisett in the early 1960s, where they happily raised their four children. She was a wonderful mother and grandmother, loving and supportive, and active in the community and the church. She led a Cub Scout group for years, and volunteered for many school and church activities. Her family, pets included, was her focus and her world.

            She was retired from the ORR School Superintendant’s Office and was a communicant of St. Anthony’s Church. Born before women had the right to vote, she was tuned in to politics until her death and was proud and happy to cast her ballot for the first woman to run for President.

            Survivors include her two daughters, Christine Rosperich, and Kathleen Guilherme and her husband John, all of Mattapoisett; two sons, Edward Perrault and his wife Laurie Goldberg of Westport, CT, and Stephen Perrault and his wife Madeline Novak of Agawam, MA; four grandchildren, Jeffrey Guilherme and his wife Jeana Conley, Dana Guilherme, Gregory Rosperich and his wife Florencia Rago, and Jonathan Rosperich; and a great-grandson, Chase Guilherme.

            She was the mother-in-law of the late William Rosperich and was pre-deceased by her siblings Bernard Miethe, Joseph Miethe, Francis Miethe and Marie Roy.

The family wishes to thank the Southcoast VNA Hospice Group for their caring support during Bertha’s final journey.

            Her Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Tuesday, July 13th at 11 AM in St. Anthony’s Church. Burial will follow in St. Anthony’s Cemetery. Visiting hours are omitted. Arrangements are with the Saunders-Dwyer Mattapoisett Home For Funerals, 50 County Road, Mattapoisett. For online condolence book, please visit
