WARSAW — Bernice M. Berg, age 89, of Warsaw, went to meet the Lord on Friday, May 6, 2022. She was born on July 4, 1932 to Frank and Rosa (Lindauer) Fetter in Mariah Hill.

Bernice attended Dale High School in the late 1940’s while helping her parents on the family farm.

Following her schooling, she was a nanny, worked at General Electric in Huntingburg, waitressed at Santa Claus Land and Warsaw Community Schools. On August 22, 1953, she was united in marriage to Frank Berg at Mary Help of Christian Church in Mariah Hill, IN. Frank’s navy commission sent them both to Corpus Christi, TX until they returned to Indiana and settled in Evansville in the mid1950’s. In 1973, they left many cherished friends and relocate to Warsaw. Bernice was a caring, loving wife and mother, as well as a passionate servant of God. She spent many hours volunteering at Sacred Heart Parish, Sacred Heart School, Rosary Altar Society, Welcome Wagon, and Delta Theta Tau. She was proud of her children and especially enjoyed rocking her grandchildren. Bernie was actively involved in the lives of her children serving as an academic room mother, a den mother and athletic team mother.

She was also “mom” to many others and never turned a hurting heart or empty stomach away. She exemplified living the love of God. She was a faithful friend who enjoyed bowling, dancing, playing bridge, and weekly visits to the beauty salon.

She leaves behind her children Steve (Christi) Berg of Warsaw, Phyllis (Kim) Wheeler of Larwill, IN, Carol (Tony) Staley of South Bend, IN, Sarah (Dennis) Robinson of Warsaw, David (Nicole) Berg of Fort Wayne, Frank (Janet) Berg II of Fishers; sister Betty Kleinhelter, Celestine; brother Ray (Sue) Fetter, Mariah Hill; and sister in-law Marian (Fred) Hebert, St. Anne, IL; 20 grandchildren and over 25 great-great grandchildren who will miss her smiles and hugs.
