Donna Gean Berg was born on July 25, 1932 in Doland, SD to George and Arabella Blue. She spent the majority of her life on the family farm in Grove City, Minnesota.
When Donna was 18 years old, she married Donald Alvin Berg on August 19, 1950. Together they continued to operate the family farm and raised four children: Franklin, Diane, Richard and Michael. She was an active member of the First Baptist Church of Litchfield. She later attended the Litchfield Christian Church and the United Methodist Church. She was an active member of Bible study, children's programs and was always available to serve a meal or help where needed. In 1988, Donna and Donald were Conservation Farmers of the Year. They felt honored to have received this award. In 1992, they retired from farming allowing them extra time to spend a few winters in Arizona and Texas. They traveled to Alaska and Hawaii and had many fun camping trips with their family and the Happy Ramblers Camping group.
Donna thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her family. Getting together with family and friends was always a priority. Whether she was playing with the grandkids, preparing a delicious meal, or playing a competitive game of cards, a good time was had by all.
Donna lived every moment of her life to the fullest. Up until the last minutes of her life here on earth she was enjoying some of her favorite past times. She has sewn countless quilts, table runners, bathrobes, nearly 1000 facemasks and any other item her children or grandchildren wished for. Her gardening skills were a talent to be desired and the fruits of her labors were enjoyed by many.
Her faith in Jesus Christ was strong and she was willing to share this with family and friends. Her steady support, care of her family and love of life will be missed dearly. This past Saturday, April 24th, 2021 she went home to her Creator. She looked forward to being in heaven with her family and friends. We are sure she is rejoicing with them and reuniting with Donald.
