Connie Ann Berg(1959 - 2018)

Connie Berg passed away peacefully at Alaska Regional Hospital on March 3, 2018 after a brief illness. She was 58 years old. Connie was born in Seward, AK to Robert and Olga Berg. Being a commercial fishing family, Connie worked many years on family fishing boats. She was known for her strength and her ability to handle the hard work on the water.

Connie was a devoted mother and grandmother, a wonderful aunt, sister, sister-in-law, cousin, and friend. She loved crossword puzzles, bingo, sewing, gardening, her pets, and a strong cup of coffee. Though burdened with painful health issues, she had a strong and determined attitude. Her easy-to-please smile and her easy-to-laugh humor never left her.

Connie is survived by her son, Robert "Bobby" Berg, granddaughters Alyssa and Layla Berg, brothers Arne (Linda) and Gunnar (Debbie) Berg, sister Robyn (Pete) Berg, and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband Mike Smeltzer and her parents, Bob and Olga Berg.

A private celebration of life will be held at a later date.
