Merle Dewayne Bergey


Wed, Oct 9th, 2013
Posted in Harmony Obituaries

Merle was born in Harmony, MN on October 9, 1927 the oldest son of Glen and Gladys (Evenson) Bergey. His first years were spent near Lanesboro, MN where he attended Dirken and O’Hara Schools. In the seventh grade he attended Canton Schools and graduated in 1945. After graduation, Merle attended one year of Business College in Winona, MN.

In 1948, Merle enlisted in the U.S. Army and took his basic training at Fort Knox, Kentucky. He spent 18 months in Germany with the First Infantry Division.

He returned to the United States in 1950 and started farming. On November 16, 1951 he married Eloise Thompson in Harmony. From 1960-1965, Merle worked with Nels Johnson Construction Company of Winona, MN, where he assisted in the construction of several buildings at Luther College and the University of Wisconsin, Platteville. In the spring of 1965 Merle returned to his occupation of choice, farming on the family’s dairy farm, where he and Eloise continued to live, raising their seven children. Merle was a kind and loving husband, dad, grandpa, great-grandpa and brother. He leaves his family with many cherished memories, including his values of common sense, unconditional love, and being a good neighbor.

Merle was a lifetime member of the Henrytown Lutheran Church, the Paul Blegen Post 400 Legion, and served several years as a 4-H leader.

Along with his dedication to caring for the land and livestock, Merle loved telling stories, visiting, and spending time with his family and friends. He especially looked forward to his occasional trips to the casino, and had a special interest in sports, including the Minnesota Twins and Vikings. Merle was a hard worker, who never truly retired. When his health forced him to let go of some of his chores, he continued to stay active by mowing the lawn, gardening, watering flowers, and driving his Gator with his loyal companion Mickey, in the passenger seat.

Merle passed away Thursday, October 3, 2013 at his home, with his wife and children at his side.

Merle is survived by his wife, Eloise; seven children, Diane (Steve) Allbee of Dunn Loring, VA, Donald (Debra) Bergey of Canton, David (Karen) Bergey of Harmony, Dennis Bergey of Canton, Dean Bergey of Harmony, Danette (Tim) Daniels of Waconia, MN, and Doug (Debbie Christiansen) Bergey of Spring Valley; fifteen grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren, one brother Gerald (Gloria) Bergey of Harmony; t .....
