Obituary of Mary Berg
It is with great sorrow that we announce, Mary Reid Berg, formerly of Groundbirch, B.C. passed away June 10, 2021 at Rotary Manor in Dawson Creek, BC at the age of 90 years.
Mary was born in the Pouce Coupe hospital on November 12, 1930, to James and Agnes Neil of Sunset Prairie. She grew up on a farm at Sunset Prairie along with her younger brothers Jim and Dave. Mary attended the high school at Progress, then worked at the Sunset Prairie General Store. She married Rob Berg, December 3, 1949, and they settled on the Berg homestead at Groundbirch where they began their family of six children. They farmed until Rob went to work for Canfor and the family moved to Chetwynd but kept the farm to return to in retirement. Mary thoroughly enjoyed the retirement years with Rob. There were good times with grandchildren and many visits with family and friends over coffee or for lunch at the Co-op. They also travelled to Scotland to connect with Mary’s cousins.
Mom loved cooking, reading, and gardening. Her homemade bread and pies were delicious. She also loved being part of a large extended family and enjoyed their visits, cards, and pictures. Her fridge door at the farm was a family photo gallery.
Mary was pre-deceased by her beloved husband, Rob, in 2008. She will be greatly missed by her children: Ellen (Daryl), Stan, Nancy, Greg, Shirley (Phil), Jennifer (Dave); grandchildren: Craig (Noele), Carly (Adam), Sarah (Andrew), Sandy, Max (Renee), Sam (Brit), Chester (Marina), Marissa and Nigel; and thirteen great-grandchildren as well as her brothers Jim (Helen) and Dave (Bea) Neil, sisters-in-law Joyce Young and Blondie Berg and many nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank the staff at the Tamarack Unit, Rotary Manor for their care and kindness to Mom.
A memorial gathering will be planned after restrictions are lifted.
For friends so wishing, donations may be made in memory of Mary to Rotary Manor, 1121-90 Avenue, Dawson Creek, BC V1G 5A3.
Very Respectfully, Reynars Funeral Home & Crematorium
