November 2021 Posted in Obituary

Carolyn Berg… Loved by many.

She was born, on the sidewalk, in Yuma, Arizona, on July 3, 1935 to John F. and Fay Cox Ham. She passed from this life on Oct. 22, 2021 in Silverton.

Those who knew her will tell you that Carolyn was one of the most selfless people around. She was a loving and dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend.

Carolyn was the office manager at the Silverton Appeal-Tribune, starting in the early 1970s and retired after 35 years. In 2003 Carolyn was recognized with the Lifetime Achievement Award for the town of Silverton. She helped found Our Town in 2004. In retirement, she volunteered her time at Silverton Hospital and Silverton Elks Lodge #2210. She enjoyed spending time with family, and most recently found a new love of trailer camping.

Carolyn was preceded in death by her husband, Keith Berg.

She is survived by her three children, John (Judy) Duer, Alan (Kendra) Duer and Pam Richardson. She also is survived by her nine grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; as well as her best friend, Chuck DeGuire, and his family, and many other friends and extended family.

May she rest in eternal peace.

There will be a short service at Silverton First Christian Church on Nov. 6, 2021 at 11:30 a.m. A Celebration of Life immediately following at the Silverton Elks Lodge.
