May 13, 1920 - Carroll Times - Mrs. Richard Berger died at her home in the second ward Wednesday morning of the past week after an illness of about four months suffering with the flu, pneumonia, and the effects of the first named. Through out her entire sickness she was a patient sufferer and during the last days of her illness, when she had been told she could not live, she expressed herself as not being afraid and being ready. During her early illness she was cared for at St. Anthony's hospital but a few weeks ago she became much improved and was taken to her home where she was cared for by a trained nurse.

Following her school days she was a successful school teacher and was married to R.C. Berger, of Arcadia, August 3, 1914.

To this union one daughter, Alyce, was born. Some two years ago the family moved to this city, where Mr. Berger built an elegant home on North Adams street. At the time of moving here he entered the employ of the Green Bay Lumber Co., but has since accepted a position as local manager for the Joyce Lumber company.

During their residence here the family have made many friends and heartfelt sorrow goes out to the husband and little daughter, who are left to mourn the untimely loss of their loved one. Her death cast a gloom over all her friends and the funeral Friday was largely attended both locally and by friends in Arcadia and West Side.
