INEZ STEGALL (WEIPPERT) Prosser Funeral Home Inez Stegall (Weippert), 82, of Hermiston, OR passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving family, on March 9, 2017. The daughter of Peter and Magdelena (Aichele) Weippert, Inez was born on April 30, 1934 in Chaseley, North Dakota, the youngest of six siblings. Inez grew up on a farm and attended Chaseley school. While in high school, Inez played basketball and was a cheerleader as well as spent time with her horse, May. She and her horse were inseparable during her childhood; she was often seen riding May to school. In 1953, she married Franklin O. Berg, Sr. and together they had six beautiful children while living in North Dakota and Montana. In 1972, she married her second husband, T.M. Stegall and the family moved to the Grand Coulee, WA area and also lived in Kennewick before moving to Prosser in 1976. In 1992, after her husband's retirement, they moved to Boardman and then Hermiston, OR where she resided until her death. Truly in her element as the matriarch of an enormous brood of children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews, her greatest joy was spending time with her family. Inez was a wonderful cook, always the hostess for family get-togethers where enough food for an army was prepared; family gatherings were not complete without her famous buns and caramel rolls. She and T.M. spent many winters travelling to Arizona and Mexico in their RV. Inez also enjoyed spending time in her flowerbeds and garden, playing pinochle, quilting and crafts, canning and traveling to casinos. Another of her joys was watching polka and country music shows on Saturday night RFD-TV. Inez is survived by her six children: Corlotta Berg of Hermiston, OR; Franklin, Jr. (Carol) Berg of Salem, OR; Mark (Darlene) Berg of Prosser, WA; Daniel (Vickie) Berg of Prosser, WA; Susan Troth of Lincoln, CA; and David (Rhonda) Berg of Moses Lake, WA; as well as 18 grandchildren and many, many great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband T.M.; sisters: Martha and Elsie; and brothers: Rienhold, Ruben and Edwin. Viewing will take place from 4:00 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at Prosser Funeral Home. A service to celebrate Inez's life will begin at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at Prosser Funeral Home with burial to follow at Prosser cemetery where Inez will be laid to rest beside her beloved husband T.M.
