Margaret Ella Berg
June 23, 1920 ~ July 18, 2015
Marg Berg passed away July 18, 2015 in Swan Valley Lodge, Creston, BC.
Margaret Gregg was born in her grandmother’s house at Piapot, SK, June 23, 1920. In 1933, her parents packed their five children and all the possessions they could fit into a Model T truck to come west where, as Grampa Gregg said: “the wind didn’t blow”. When she was 15 she began cooking for Alf Berg on the farm he managed for Poole Construction Ltd. on the Creston flats. Marg and Alf Berg were married November 15, 1939. Marg and Alf began their family and raised their six children according to old-fashioned farming values. Marg loved entertaining and welcomed family and friends to her dinner table. After Alf’s passing, Marg took a secretary course in Nelson and then spent several years working for the Creston Veterinary Clinic.
Marg is survived by her children: Marian (Gerry) Veysey of Fruitvale, Donald (Sylvia) Berg of Creston, and Ruth Berg of Cranbrook; sister Betty Gregg of Langley; brother-in-law Alvin Cameron of Creston; and several grand- and great-grand children.
A Memorial Service will be held in September, to be announced at later date.
