BERRY (Rockford) - Mrs. Mary Berry, age 96, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, March 7, 2010. She grew up in Plainfield Township where her father was a truck farmer. She attended Western Michigan University and worked at Wolverine World Wide. On October 28, 1938 Mary married Lyle, and they also had a farm with Mary helping whenever she was needed. They raised cattle, and Mary supplemented the family income by making and selling butter and eggs. She was the caregiver for both sets of parents, (Randall and Berry). They were a close-knit family, all living nearby. For 13 years, Mary worked as a cook for Rockford Public Schools, retiring in 1974. She was a life-long member of Rockford United Methodist Church, volunteered at the North Kent Service Center, and was a second-generation member of the Monday Club. Until the day of her death, Mary was in total control of her life. She was an eclectic and avid reader, oftentimes reading a book a day. Even with arthritis, Mary did beautiful needlework and ceramics, making cherished gifts for family and friends. Throughout her life, she had cats who were always her companions, and each one was very special. Mary was a very detailed person, and this trait has been passed on to her devoted children. Mary is survived by her children, Sue and Ray Pletcher of Madison, OH, John and Sandy Berry of Munford, AL, Paul and Barbara Berry of Rockford; daughter-in-law, Mrs. Doris Hickerson; 12 grandchildren; 14 great grandchildren; several great-great grandchildren; sister, Mrs. June Davis; and nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Lyle Berry; her son, Bud Berry; brothers, Donald Randall and Eric Randall; and sister, Kay Tomaszewski. The service for Mrs. Berry will be Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. at the Pederson Funeral Home with Pastor Jan Rogacki officiating. Interment in Blythefield Memory Gardens. Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider North Kent Service Center. Relatives and friends may meet with the family from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the funeral home.
