Ann Marlene Berg, 85, died peacefully on November 16, 2023, in Fredericksburg TX. She was born on August 24, 1938, to Anne Maude and Martin C. Sundt in Las Vegas, NM. She was the youngest of four children. Ann met her late husband Bob Berg while in college working towards a nursing degree. She was swept off her feet and married in December 1958, before finishing her studies at TSWC.
Ann had three daughters, Mary (1959), Linda (1961) and Debora (1963). Theirs was a Navy family and they moved around from Indiana to Florida, and Washington State during the 1960s, before finally settling in Annapolis, Maryland in 1971. Ann and Bob were divorced in 1973. Ann began working at Anne Arundel General Hospital in 1972, training for and then working as a Surgical Technologist for more than 30 years. Ann always liked to be involved and loved her career. She was an officer in the local chapter of the Association of Surgical Technologists and often traveled to national meetings with the organization.
Most of Ann’s life was spent in the Annapolis area where she enjoyed volunteering with the Girl Scouts organization while her girls were young. Ann’s daughters grew up and moved away except for her youngest daughter Debbie who married Brian Dennis in Annapolis where they raised two daughters, Elise and Katie. Ann took great delight in being a grandmother, known affectionately as Granny. Ann was there for all the moments in the girls’ lives, from the first steps to recitals, ice skating, and gymnastics competitions.
In 2003 Ann retired, and she continued as a volunteer at AAGH for many years. Around 2013 Ann was diagnosed with the beginnings of dementia. Ann’s daughters and granddaughters worked as a team in 2014 to help Ann move to Washington State to be near Linda and her husband Robert. Ann remained independent for a few years, as her health declined. On her 80th birthday in 2018, she moved in full-time with Linda and Robert. In July 2020 her daughters again moved her to Virginia to live in a memory care facility near daughter Debbie for one year while Linda and Robert retired and relocated to Fredericksburg, Texas. In August of 2021, Ann came to Fredericksburg and settled in at Morning Star Memory Care. While she was able Ann enjoyed her Church Family and would sing along during the Wednesday night service.
Ann was an avid reader and enjoyed listening to all kinds of music. While living in the Maryland area, she loved time spent at the Smithsonian and all the museums and art galleries. Other hobbies of Ann’s were sewing, crochet, and needlepoint. She also enjoyed time spent camping with family and friends in the great outdoors.
Ann is survived by her daughters Mary Taylor of Las Vegas, NV, Linda Nordgulen and husband Robert of Fredericksburg TX, and Debora Dennis of Chesapeake, VA; granddaughters, Elise Dennis and husband Tinoy Sriratanakoul of St. Joseph, MI, and Katie Wilson and husband Jared of Jacksonville, FL; great-grandchildren, Corbin, Nolan, and Fynn.
She was preceded in death by her parents; siblings: Bill Sundt, Cornelius “Neil” Sundt, and Maren Chappell; and late husband; Robert Berg.
A celebration of life for Ann will be held at the Church of Christ in Fredericksburg, Texas at a later date.
