Blanche E. Berkvam, a wonderful wife, mother, and Nana, age 90, went to heaven on Saturday, April 14, 2018, to watch over and guide her loving family. Blanche was born on Aug. 24, 1927, the daughter of Henry and Florence Kessenich. She was a wonderful example of persistence, devotion, and hard work. Blanche worked as a telephone operator, and school lunch server where she made all of the delicious bakery and desserts. She also had a successful dry cleaning business with Gene. Our hearts are full that Blanche’s spirit is now gloriously reunited with her husband of 58 years, Gene, the love of her life; her children, Steven and Sandy; along with many special family and friends who went to heaven before her. Blanche’s joy of family, love and commitment sustain us, especially by her loving daughter, Debbie; devoted son-in-law, Tim; and three cherished grandchildren, Matt, Emily, and Marissa, who will forever hold her memory and spirit in their hearts. It is our honor to call Blanche; wife, daughter, sister, Mom, and Nana. She leaves our family with a legacy of love, and the closeness and bonds of family. Join us to celebrate her life and legacy at GUNDERSON EAST FUNERAL AND CREMATION CARE, 5203 Monona Dr., Madison, with a service on Saturday, April 21, 2018, at 12 p.m., with the Rev. Ken Smith presiding. Burial will follow at Roselawn Memorial Park. Visitation will be held at the funeral home from 10 a.m. until the time of the service on Saturday. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to Midvale Community Lutheran Church.
