Alice Berg

January 3, 1935 — November 30, 2021


Alice Irene Berg, 86, of Wanamingo, passed on November 30, 2021 at Mayo Hospital in Mankato, MN.

Alice was born on January 3, 1935 in Nerstrand, MN to George and Claribel (Prestrude) Kispert.

She graduated from Kenyon High School in 1953 and shortly after met Duane Berg. Duane and Alice were married on October 15, 1955 and raised four children in Wanamingo, MN.

Alice worked various jobs in her lifetime. She worked at Wanamingo Schools as a playground Aide and a cross walk guard, she spent some time running an in-home daycare and worked at the daycare in Trinity Lutheran church in Wanamingo, Wannacare. She enjoyed watching the kids she had at the daycares grow up as that gave her great pride. Alice also worked at Riverview Manor in Wanamingo, working nights and helping the residents there. She always enjoyed seeing the residents for many years after she was done as they would walk her home. Her favorite “job” was her family”. Alice was everything family, whether it was watching a sporting event, attending a concert, or a Labor Day Weekend bocce Tournament at the lake. If a child, grandchild, or great grandchild had an event, Alice wanted to be there. She was always there with the biggest smile. Alice treated her family with her famous cheese ball, awesome brownies and melt in your mouth caramel bars. Every family event had at least one of these for everyone to enjoy.

She is survived by her husband, Duane; children, Beverly (Steve) Wolf, Jill (Reed) Kvittem, James (Debra) Berg; grandchildren, Nicole Donlon, Michelle Winter, Tara Hogy, Taylor Kvittem, Brett Kvittem, AmandaJo Edel, Tia Minter, Ashley Urevig, Bailey Berg, Alivia Berg; 11 great-grandchildren; sister, Jean Overby; and many nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents; son, Bruce Berg; son-in-law, Tom Johnson; brothers, Gerald and Claire Kispert.
