Marian Berg

Southlake, Texas

Marian Berg, 90, passed away on May 28, 2019. 

At Marian’s request there will be no funeral. Her cremation has taken place. A graveside service will take place at a future date in South Dakota.

Marian was born on the family farm in Sanborn County to Clarence and Agnes Larson. Marian married Clayton Berg on Oct. 14, 1950. They were married 49 years before Clayton passed away.

While starting a family and raising her kids, she taught in a one-room country schoolhouse in the early 1950s. After living through the Great Depression, tough times and going without, she retained her thriftiness and “don’t waste anything” attitude all her life. She enjoyed embroidery and quilting in her younger years. As Marian and Clayton reached their retirement age, they didn’t retire, instead they bought and sold real estate, had an antique business and enjoyed going to farm auctions.

Marian is survived by her children, Gary Berg (Joyce) of Great Falls, Mont., Murray Berg (Cindy) of Great Falls, Mont. and Holly Edwards (Percy) of Southlake, Texas; a sister, Joyce Aurit of Sioux Falls; eight grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband and three brothers, Marvin, Lavern and Dennis Larson.
