Bertha "Bert" Jean King Bouldin was born on September 3, 1946 at Weisbbrod Memorial Hospital in Eads, Colorado to G. Leslie "Les" and Alpha C. McCracken King.

"Bert" attended school in Eads starting with first grade and graduating from Eads High School in 1964. After graduation, Bert moved to Evansville, Wyoming, married and started her family. She had two children, Dana Willard Humphrey and Heather Ann Humphrey.

In 1979 Bertha met the love of her life, Eldred "Lee" Bouldin. They were married November 21, 1979. They eventually moved to Brighton, Colorado where she lived until her death. After her children were raised Bert went back to school earning a master's degree in education and curriculum.
