Berg, Lillie BERG – Lillie Berg passed peacefully from this life at Roseview Manor in Thunder Bay, Ont. on Thursday July 23, 2015, just two weeks short of her 102nd birthday.
Born in Great Falls, Mont. in 1913, Annie Lillie Berg (nee Selland) was raised on the Selland family homestead farm near Melville, Sask. where she met and married husband, Gustav Berg. The Bergs moved to St. Catharines, Ont. in 1946 where they raised their two sons, Richard and Kenneth.
Widowed by the death of husband Gus in 1989, Lillie moved with son Kenneth in 1996 to Thunder Bay. There they lived with son Richard, in Lillie’s case, until December 2011 when she took up residence at Roseview Manor, where she lived for the last four years of her life.
Lillie’s life was marked by caring for others, first for father Iver in Melville, then mother Birgit, then husband Gus, then son Kenneth in St. Catharines. All benefited from her loving care as she held the family together.
Socially active in her family circle, neighborhood and the religious community of Elim Tabernacle and successor churches, she was especially
close with friends, Gloria Havel and Gwen Wesley.
Always the avid homemaker, she canned fruit in St. Catharines, and continued baking bread in Thunder Bay, right up to the age of 86.
Predeceased by her parents, Iver and Birgit Selland; husband, Gustav Berg; son, Kenneth; and also her three brothers, Eddy (Margaret), Gilbert (Irene) and Henry (Vivian) Selland and their respective spouses
She is survived by son, Richard (Maureen) Berg; nephews, Roy (Janice), Douglas and Craig Selland; niece, Betty (Calvin) Parr; also by grandchildren, Samantha (Jason) MacIntyre, Camille Yergeau and Ronald (Amanda) Berg; and as well by great-grandchildren, Jakob and Aliyah MacIntyre, and Rowen Yergeau; also by great-nephews, Kevin (Brandi) and Keith Selland, Mark (Danielle) and Chad (Brenda) Parr; great-niece, Carena (Jeremy) Dean, and their respective children.
Cremation has taken place and there will be a graveside ceremony at the Berg family plot in St. Catharines at a later date in September.
