When I was a little girl I loved going to the farm. Uncle Harry was a little scarey to me. But as I grew I realized that he was simply a quiet man. Auntie Dina was welcoming and we laughed a lot. And she was a good cook..yummy! She used to pinch me a lot…it was a sign of affection but it hurt! She had a good grip! I cherish the memory ..but I don’t miss the “pinch”! She was feisty and spoke her mind. I am so glad I got to see her again a few years ago. She still had the same spunk that I loved. God speed Auntie till we meet again. ❤️❤️❤️Wanda

My heartfelt sympathy Marlene, Albin and all of your families. I know your Mom will be missed. She was a very special angel in my life and always welcomed the Berg girls when we walked up their driveway. We got to know her brothers and sisters and their families and were often included in their many celebrations. I missed my Mom very much when she was away at work and the hundreds of times that I was there to see Dina, she always welcomed me like I was family. There are no words to express my gratitude. REST IN PEACE
Words fail to express my deep sorrow for your loss.
