CONGRATULATIONS

SKJOLD SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS


Skjold Lodge is the proud sponsor of, and provides the funds for, the Cyril K. Wittrock Scholarship. Cy Wittrock was a key member, officer, and supporter of the lodge.

Remembering Lillian Berge.

Remembering Lillian Berge. BERGE, Lillian Agnes (nee Evenson), 93, of Wildwood, MO formerly of Huntley, IL. Loving mother of Wendy Berge Gray (fiancé Joseph Christopoulos), the late Eric Oscar Berge and Lisa Berge (Ronald Lee) Johnson. Former long devoted wife to Oscar J. Berge. Beloved grandmother of John-Austin Gray and Evan Oscar Gray. Dear eldest sister of the late Helen (late Edward) Froelich, the late Edward "Buddy" (late Emily) Evenson and Elese (late Joseph) Filepek.

Born in Sister Bay, WI, Lillian lived in Door County most of her childhood days. Lillian moved to Chicago's Northshore after honorably serving as a WAVE in the U.S. Navy in San Francisco, CA. She worked in the family business, Berge Builders and Gobe Management for over 30 years. Proud of her Norwegian heritage, she was active in the Skjold Lodge/ Sons of Norway and well known as "Lefse Lil".

Her true joy in life was being a devout Christian within her many church circles throughout her life. Her beautiful spirit is now at rest with her heavenly Father above, yet may it live through each of us.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in her honor to Foundation Baptist Church (204 Spring Street, Cary, IL. 60013). If this is not possible, an unexpected act of kindness for some unfortunate soul in her name would be heartfelt.

Family and friends are welcome to a private graveside service and internment at Mount Emblem Cemetery, 520 East Grand Avenue, Elmhurst, IL at 12:00 PM on September 21st, 2016.
