Memorial services for Karen Berg, beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, were held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, July 14, 2015 at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church, with Pastor Audree Catalano officiating. Burial took place at the Fountain Lutheran Cemetery in Fountain, Minn. Visitation was held from 5-7 p.m. on Monday, July 13 at the Hindt-Hudek Funeral Home in Cresco, Iowa and continued for one hour prior to the service at the church on Tuesday.

Karen Berg, age 74, of Cresco, Iowa, formally of Fountain, Minn. died peacefully on Wednesday, July 8, 2015 at Gunderson Lutheran Hospital in LaCrosse, Wisc.

Karen Lee McRoberts was born June 5, 1941 in LeRoy, Minn. to Clare and Betty (Bright) McRoberts. On May 20, 1961 she married Bill Berg in Fountain. This union was blessed with four children.

Karen was a telephone operator with US West for 31 ½ years. During employment she was active in CWA union. Karen’s unwavering faith was a blessing to anyone who met her. Karen was very active in her church. She was a member of Fountain Lutheran Church, Community Lutheran Church in Geneva, Minn. and St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Granger, Minn. She was also very active with the Via de Cristo Community. Karen felt that her greatest accomplishment was raising her four incredible children. Her other source of pride and joy were her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. To quote words from Karen, “The first time a woman hears ‘mommy’ from her children is a thrill, but the times she hears ‘Grandma’ is a miracle.”

Karen is survived by her children: James (Pam), Dawn Becerra, Thomas (Zelda) all of Rochester, Minn.; and Michael (Joellyn) of Cresco; 15 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; 2 brothers-in-law and 2 sisters-in-law: George Carr, Marlys McRoberts, Clark and Margaret Berg; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Bill in 1994; an infant son, Gary; a brother, Bill; and a sister, Donna Carr.

In lieu of flowers, Karen’s wishes were for memorials to be made to the Southeastern Minnesota Synod-LIZWAN (Columbian Scholarship Fund), Fountain Lutheran Church, St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church, and The American Cancer Society.
