And he will raise you up on eagle’s wings, bear you on the breath of dawn,

make you to shine like the sun, and hold you in the palm of his hand.

Margaret Berger, age 70, passed away July 2, 2016. Daughter of William and May Wood Berger, she was born and raised in Mondovi, and graduated from Mondovi High School.

Starting at the main office of The Farmers Store, Margaret spent the remainder of her life in Eau Claire working at various firms including Holiday Travel, Superior Mortgage and United Way. Her most recent job, however, was her favorite: as a bus monitor for Student Transit; she loved working with the kids.

Whether making jewelry, crafting treasured hand-sewn Christmas cards, or using her green thumb to fill her house and gardens with unique plants, she was always creative. Margaret was also an avid reader.

She loved, and was loved by, her nieces and nephews for whom she was the go-to aunt and a favorite stay for them as kids, where she spoiled them and made them feel special.

Margaret was preceded in death by her parents and her brother Jim. Surviving siblings include Bill (Cathy) TX; John (Susan) ME; Judy Davis, Eau Claire; Barbara Jacques (Tom) MN; Mary Lorberter (Daryl) New Auburn; Linda Nyseth MN and Dori Wozniak (John) MN. Other survivors include sister-in-law Ann Berger, fifteen nieces and nephews, along with several great nieces and nephews.

Per Margaret’s request, services will be private, with burial at Sacred Heart Cemetery in Mondovi.

You have my sincerest sympathies and condolences.

  2. I am so, so sorry to hear of Margaret’s passing. I worked with her for many years at Superior Mortgage & stopped to visit her & her lovely garden many times. I have her hostas in my front yard. We always had a great time together & wish we would of stayed in touch these last few years. Time passes much too quickly! My condolences to all the family members.

  3. Margaret and I met in accounting class and became wonderful friends. She didn’t drive at the time and she and I decided it was time for her to learn. We had some very interesting turns since then. She was always near if she was needed. A true friend to many and I will miss her. My sincere condolences to the family.
