SANTA MONICA, CALIF - Marjorie Christine Berg, beloved mother and grandmother, passed peacefully on August 16th just after her 90th birthday in Brentwood, California. Margie was born in Kinston, North Carolina, on July 31st 1929 to Sarah and Henry Horne. She grew up an only child, especially close to her mother, in the Kinston mill village that was a source of many colorful and much loved stories of her life. She later was the dynamic center of countless family summer vacations with her children and her cousins' families at the NC beaches. After graduating high school she pursued a very successful modeling career in New York featured in Look Magazine, campaigns for Coke, and as a popular commercial actress of live television. In 1953 she married film producer, Sy Weintraub, with whom she had two daughters and moved to Beverly Hills for their young lives until their divorce. In 1963 she married Norman Berg, a prominent Northwest building contractor, and moved to Seattle where she lived happily for 40 years. Her mother, Bunny, lived down the street remaining inseparable throughout their lives. Upon her husband's passing she returned to Los Angeles and spent her final years in Santa Monica. She was an avid reader with an elegant fashion and design aesthetic that infused her life with beauty and joy. She is survived by her two daughters, Lori Ferrer and Cynthia Weintraub, as well as her adored grandsons, Sam and Cooper Shrieve, and Danny and Charlie Veytia. Sign the guest book at
