Memorial Gifts & Donations

Ann Gordon Berg, 84, died Saturday July 8, surrounded by family and friends. Ann lived in Cheriton, Virginia. She was born October 5, 1938, to William and Jane Gordon in Omaha, Nebraska. Soon after the family moved to Houston, Texas where she grew up a proud Texan. She was a graduate of St. John’s School and attended Pine Manor College, just outside Boston. That is where she met her husband, and love of her life, David, who was attending Massachusetts Institute of Technology. They were married for 52 years until David’s passing in 2011. Ann had two children, John who lives in Bend, Oregon and Karen who lives in Virginia Beach. Ann is survived by her sister Julie of Greenville, South Carolina, John and his wife Carol and their daughter Annika of La Jolla, California and Karen. Ann is also survived by her sister-in-law, Marilyn Spoerl of Hampton, New Hampshire, and five nephews and nieces.

Ann was a Master Gardener and loved working in her yard. She loved international travel, especially cruises with her sister Julie. She was a master bridge player and loved trash talking and laughing over games; especially cribbage. She was a member of P.E.O. International, a philanthropic educational organization, where she held offices and served on numerous committees.

A devoted Christian, Ann was a presbyterian deacon and elder and most recently a member of Holmes Presbyterian church. But her favorite thing of all was helping others. Over the years she “adopted” many people and families in need and provided love, advice, materials and financial support. She cared about her community and always tried to make it better. Ann cherished all of her friends and their unwavering support and kindness. Especially Deannie Hill, Scotty Buck, Joan Natali, and Richard Graham.

A memorial service has been scheduled for 11:00 AM, Saturday July 22nd at Holmes Presbyterian church in Cape Charles, Virginia. In lieu of flowers donations can be made in Ann’s name to the Berg Family Scholarship at the University of Colorado. www.giving.cu.edu/BergScholarship.

I was so sorry to hear of Ann’s death. She was a fun person to be around and she certainly helped me become a better bridge player.

Ann’s spirit is free and I’m sure there’s a Bridge game going down wherever she is 💓, I enjoyed Ann’s friendship as her neighbor in Caroon Farms,

My deepest sympathy to all who knew and loved her. Since God placed Ann in our lives she was a blessing. She adopted our family and showed more love and care for my mom (Eleanor) over a span of 30 plus years. She even had my prom dress made so I would not miss out. I thank God that during our last conversation we exchanged I love yous, and I will cherish it always. She will be greatly missed, but never forgoten. Rest In Peace Gentle Soul.

I was saddened deeply when I heard of Ann’s passing. I spoke with her on Wednesday without the thought that I wouldn’t hear from her soon to reschedule her hair appointment. She was such a generous person, always surprising me with little gestures of kindness. We loved chatting about horses, cats, dogs and the chickens! She had recently brought my daughter a precious baby gift that was greatly appreciated. I will miss her so much.

My heartfelt sympathies to The Bergs and all of Ann’s large circle of friends and family. If you were her friend, you were her family. Ann’s spirit was captured exactly in this memorial, her dedication of service to her community and being a helpful resource to those in time of need. Her fun spirit, always up for a social activity, never idle. Her circle and table were never closed, always room for more. I am so grateful my life includes the Berg family.
