Mary Ferrier Berg (1902-1993), was born in Brechin, Angus, Scotland and came to the US when very young with Scotish parents Anna Roger Hutton (1874-1957), and Hugh Ferrier Sr. (1872-1950), and her older brother Hugh Ferrier Jr (1899-1954), and older sister Jessie Ferrier Clawes (1901-1996). Younger brother Charles Hutton "Buddy" Ferrier (1915-1986), and sister Ina Ferrier (1904-1993), were both born in the US in Chicago. She and her sisters were small but, she was very petite build. She was a size 3 dress and 5 shoe, 92 lbs and 4' 11". She married Bill Berg around 1927 and they moved over to 1340 N. Rockwell. Up until that time she still lived with her parents and grandparents in the same bulding at 1640 N. Rockwell. She was entirly gray by 40, but you wouldn't know it since she and all the Ferrier gals seemed to color their hair. It was one of the many things they use to do together. She retired from Illinois Bell Phone Company after 47 years of service. Bill worked there also as did her father Roy and nephew Richard. She was a quiet and caring private person. She could be quite funny at times. She liked to bowl in her younger days. She smoked for almost 70 years then the Doctor told her she had to quit so she did along with Ina. Just like that. They helped each other. It was surprising because they always had a pack of cigarets next to them and were always smoking it seemed. Didn't seem to hurt them much as she lived to be 90 years and Ina 89 years. She lived near her sisters Jessie and Ina all her life, as they were all very close. She was preceded in death by her husband Bill Berg.
