Kathleen Freeman Bergh FEDOR Obituary
FEDOR Please Sign the Guestbook @ Jacksonville.com Kathleen Freeman Bergh Fedor, of San Pablo, died Thursday, November 7th, 2013 at Beaches Baptist Medical Center in Jacksonville Beach. Known to her friends as Kay, Mrs. Fedor was a resident of Jacksonville and the Jacksonville region for more than half of her 89 years. Mrs. Fedor was born Kathleen Freeman Bergh on August 26th, 1924, in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, New York. The daughter of a Norwegian-immigrant mariner and a first generation Irish-American social worker, Miss Bergh spent her childhood and adolescence in Long Island and the New Jersey suburbs of New York City. She won a scholarship to Drexel University in Philadelphia, where she met her future husband, John B. Hanley. Kay Bergh put her college career aside to marry Jack Hanley shortly before he was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1944. The couple had four children, John B., Jr. (Jeb), now of Columbia, South Carolina; Steven, now of West Hempstead, New York; and twins Richard, now of Marietta, Georgia, and Kathleen Kristina, of Jacksonville. Mr. Hanley's employer, Hercules Powder Company, transferred him to Brunswick, Georgia in 1949; the couple lived and raised their children on nearby St. Simons Island before divorcing in 1962. Mrs. Fedor moved to Ohio before marrying her second husband, Paul Fedor, in 1966. Mr. Fedor worked for the U.S. Federal Housing Administration in East St. Louis, Illinois, and Indianapolis, Indiana, while his wife completed work on, first her bachelor's degree, at Southern Illinois University, and then her master's degree in Clinical Social Work, at Indiana University. Mrs. Fedor then joined the U.S. Veterans Administration as a clinical social worker, and worked for that agency in Indianapolis and Miami, Florida. Mrs. Fedor so loved her time in the south-Georgia orbit of Jacksonville that she requested and got a posting to the VA clinic at Jacksonville's Memorial Hospital in 1979. Mr. Fedor also transferred to the Jacksonville FHA office. Both worked for the federal government in Jacksonville until their retirement in 1991. Mr. Fedor passed away in July of 2010. In addition to her four children, Mrs. Fedor is survived by seven grandchildren and six great grandchildren. Her family would like to acknowledge the superior care provided for Mrs. Fedor in her last years by caregivers Carla Irle and Debbie Ortis. A memorial service will be held at St. Andrews Lutheran Church on Saturday, November 23rd, to commemorate the interment of Mrs. Fedor's cremated remains beside those of her late husband, in the church's memorial garden. The garden is within sight of the Beach Boulevard bridges that could also be seen from the backyard of the Fedors' home in San Pablo. Please visit our online Tribute at www.quinn-shalz.com.
