Donalda Berger

1934 – 2016

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our best friend, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Dona (Donalda) Blanche Berger. Mom passed away peacefully the morning of Thursday, May 12, 2016 after having surgery to repair a broken hip. Mom was ready to go and had been asking God to take her for the last few of her days. She will be missed by all who had been blessed to know her. She touched many lives and made everyone around her feel special and loved. People often commented on how much love was felt in her home. She made everyone feel welcome. Mom’s life had been dedicated solely to her family. She attended as many hockey, soccer and football games, plays, Christmas concerts, skateboarding competitions, birthday parties, celebrations for any and all occasions that she possibly could. She was supportive of anything and everything that her family was doing. Mom was an avid reader and card player – she played to win and she loved to play. She also loved to travel, bake (her gingersnaps were world famous) and spend time with her family. She and Dad put many happy miles on their old motorhome back in the day. Her and dad lived life to the fullest and has as much fun as they could. She is survived by her son Doug Berger; and daughters Rhonda Berger and Sonja Baker. She also had many living grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Rhonda and Macky’s children: Chaylene Feuser, her husband Corey and their children, Riian, Addisyn and Cason, Shenny Grimard, her husband Don and their children, Navie and Aspen, and Brady and Denny Houle, and Sonja and Willie’s children: Levi, Kaelan and Jaden Baker. Mom was predeceased by her husband, Peter Berger in 2000. Our lives will be forever changed by this loss but she will live on in our memories and every time we play a game of cards, bake her cookies, make her potatoes Romanoff or round dogs. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
