Elisabeth Mary Bergquist passed away on Sept. 24, 2013 at her home in Bozeman.
The Guest Book is expired.
She was born on March 11, 1923 in Bremen, Germany and came to the United States in 1952. Elisabeth lived in Chicago, Ill., where she had worked as a nurse at the Illinois Central Railroad Hospital in the ICU department. In 1990, she relocated to Bozeman, where she has since resided. Elisabeth loved the outdoors and the sunshine. Her pride and joy were her two dogs, Gunnar, a golden retriever, and Tug, a yellow lab, who meant the world to her and held a very special place in her heart.
Elisabeth is survived by her son, Clark Bergquist of Bozeman; and three grandchildren, Melissa Johnson of St. Louis, MO, Erik Bergquist of Chicago, and Cody Flores of Grand Junction, CO.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Erik Gunnar Bergquist, and her daughter, Sylvia Bodolay.
