Obituary


Deloris A. Berg

Dee Berg (Deloris Ann Buechner Berg) was born in St. Paul, Minnesota on December 1, 1919 to parents of German and French heritage, Walter and Hilda Buechner.
The third oldest of 13 children, Dee learned early about taking care of siblings and being a leader.
She married Alvin Donald Berg on February 2, 1940 and they started their own family, now combined with the Norwegian heritage from his side.
In 1955, the family moved to Mercer Island. Shortly thereafter, they moved to Magnolia Bluff where Dee and Al raised the boys.
Dee occasionally worked out of the home while the boys were in school and then started B & W Draperies with a friend.
Dee was often found volunteering her time for the American Cancer Society, Ryther Childrens Center or the Senior Centers in West Seattle or Edmonds. She was always supportive of the boys activities whether it was ice hockey, football, DeMolay or a church dance and instilled a sense of what its like to be a volunteer in each of her sons.
Dee lived on her own in Edmonds before realizing that she needed more help and moved to an assisted living facility at Silver Lake in 2006. Last August she moved again to the Royal Family Home in Bothell for an increased level of care. Dee died with son Jerry at her side on Sunday, February 20, 2011 at the age of 91.
Dee is survived by sons, Jerry, Tom and David; grandchildren, Scott, Dean, Eric, Shawna and Chris; and great-grandchildren, Garrett, Wyatt and Madeline. Her family in the mid-west includes her brothers and sisters and literally dozens of nieces and nephews.
Celebration of life will be held at 2 p.m., Sunday, February 27, at Edmonds Lutheran, 23525 84th Avenue West, Edmonds, Washington, 98026 .
