Birth: Aug. 15, 1921
Cass County
North Dakota, USA
Death: Jul. 17, 2007

BERVIG, BETTY aka GRANDMA BETTY August 15, 1921 - July 17, 2007 Mom went home to have tea & cookies with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday at 12:30p.m. with all the peace our Lord can supply. Betty was born to George and Dina Standish on August 15th or 16th (depends on who you ask) in 1921 in Fargo, North Dakota and went home one month short of her 86th birthday. Mom met and married her high school sweetheart Clarence Godfied Bervig on December 25th 1943 in North Dakota and shortly thereafter moved to California where she worked at the Naval Supply Depot while Clarence was over seas during WWII. After the war ended they stayed in California and started their family with an even split of 3 boys and 3 girls. She was a stay at home mom concentrating on raising her brood and taking care of her home. It was in 1959 at a Billy Graham Crusade that Betty came to the Lord and came to know his great love for her. It was at that time she started attending Village Church with her family in tow. It was there she enjoyed singing in the choir, teaching Sunday School and attending every bible study she could in order to learn all she could about her new found friend, Lord and Savior. In 1996 Betty moved from her long time home on Soto Road to Bethesda Christian Center after Clarence' death and her health made it impossible for her to live alone. When it became impossible for her to attend church on a regular basis she became a prayer warrior for many and I know that she will be missed by all. Betty is preceded in death by her husband of 51 years. Clarence (1994) and her Foster brother Wayne in 1959. She leaves behind all of her six children who will all miss her greatly, Thomas Michael, Timothy Wayne and his wife Leigh, Margaret Dru and her husband (mom's tallest son) Lester, Daniel John and his wife June, Karen Elizabeth, Marianne Louise and her faithful sister-in-law Clara Wiss and her grandchildren Becky, Daniel, Matthew, Hannah, Sam, Gus, Maxi, Daniel Jr., Katie, Jon, David, Benjamin, Ivan, Jenny, Haley and Miranda and great grandchildren Haley, Ayers, Tyler Jr. and David. Visitation will be on Tuesday, July 24, 2007 at 10:00 am at Sorensen Bros Mortuary, 1140 B Street, Hayward followed by the funeral service at 11:30 am with interment at Lone Tree Cemetery, Hayward. SORENSEN BROS. MORTUARY (510)581-1234 (510) 351-1451.
