December 11, 1931 ~ May 26, 2022 (age 90)


Edith Berger

Our one of a kind sister and aunt began her life on December 11, 1931 and passed away on May 26, 2022 at the age of 90.
Edith (Edie) lived most of her life in New Jersey there she graduated from Passaic Valley High School in 1949. Following high school she obtained a position at General Electric.

She shared a bedroom with her sister Norma (Jeanette) who remembers opening up their closet and there were boxes and boxes of shoes with outfits and purses to match. Of course she was the one in the family who did the ironing, Her brother remembers her turning on the radio to listen and sing to the radio show “Hit Parade”. Her siblings have all said she had a beautiful voice.

Eventually she stopped working at General Electric because she obtained a position at Passaic Valley Water Commission and remained there until she retired. While working there she met her husband, Henry Berger, who she eventually married, They dance around the kitchen to the radio. They would say the Rosary together on a regular basis. When they retired he would read the newspaper to her every morning.

Her family says she is pure of heart, kind, faithful, brave, thoughtful, patient, generous, and always thinking of others even when she was having stressful times of her own, she loved to tell corney jokes and had the best giggle.

She will be greatly missed by her siblings Ronald Grassi (his wife Alleen) and Norma (Jeanette) Davis.

She gave love and laughter to her nieces and nephews, Tom Knepper (his wife Shelley), Mark Knepper, Kim Miller (her husband Kurt), Carla Carter (her Fiance' Mark King), Ronda Grassi (her wife Nancy Welch), Laura Trazagleau (her husband Pete), Glenn Grassi and Patrick Davis.

She was predeceased in death by her husband Henry Berger, and sister Rosie Knepper (her husband Ray).
