What happened in Chicago?

About 6 months after Odilon arrived at Ellis Island his wife Bertha and daughter Florence arrived aboard the SS Finland on February 4, 1914.
I can’t show you the manifest for the SS Finland because the Ellis Island website has their links messed up. But I do have the fancy “suitable for framing” pictures though.
So we know that Odilon was married once to Bertha and then to Flavie. Bertha arrived in 1914 and then Odilon and Flavie were married in Detroit in 1919. The (unsubstantiated) story I heard is Odilon caught Bertha playing in the wrong playground.
So what happened to Bertha and Florence?
