Hjordis Berg(1930 - 2018)

Hjordis Berg

On Monday, September 3, 2018, Hjordis went home to heaven at the age of 88. She was born in Rissa Norway on July 19, 1930, on a farm where she grew up with her parents and six siblings. In 1954 she married the love of her life, Erling Berg, and followed him to Seattle, WA. They raised three daughters; Anita, Sonja, and Heidi and acquired Cathy later on. Hjordis was lively, social, strong in her Christian faith and always had a positive attitude. She participated in the Norwegian Ladies Chorus, Sons of Norway activities, and volunteered for Ski for Light over 25 years. She had a generous heart and her door was always open. She joins her grandson in heaven and is survived by her husband Erling, four daughters, two son-in-laws, four grandchildren and two older sisters in Norway.
