MARGARET A. BERG
April 6, 1927—January 20, 2016
SPARTA - Margaret A. Berg, 88, of Sparta, WI, passed away Wednesday, January 20, 2016, at the Rolling Hills Rehab Center, Sparta.
Margaret was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana, to Frank A. and Marie (Lambert) Noel, April 6, 1927. She married Harold Peter Berg and together they had three children.
Saying Margaret was an avid reader is an understatement. She read hundreds of books and attended college to become a Library Coordinator. This was a career she never used, but her interest in the subject matter was important to her.
Margaret was an active member of the Downers Grove Friends meetings. This was an organization that fit with her beliefs of living a simple life in peace and with deep integrity.
Margaret is survived by her children, Elizabeth Spannraft of IL, John Berg of Sparta, WI, also of Bensenville, IL, and James (Joan) Berg of Wooddale, IL; three grandchildren, Jason (Melanie) Berg and son, Kellin all of Wooddale, IL, Jeremy (Anna) Berg of IL, James Jr. (Monica) Berg of Medinah, IL; along with other relatives and many dear friends.
The Torkelson Page-Smith Funeral Home in Sparta, WI, is assisting the family with private family arrangements.
