Obituary

EVA BERGER (published on October 24, 2009)

EVA BERGER Eva Berger passed away on Monday, October 12, 2009, with her children by her side. She is survived by daughters Yvette Berger of Winnipeg and Sharon Eisbrenner (Charles) of Regina, SK, and by son Lindsay Berger (Aileen) of Winnipeg. She will also be missed by her grandsons Simon and Adam Eisbrenner, and Jacob Berger, and by her sister Nelli Rothbart. Eva was born in Poland on May 4, 1927. She was the middle daughter born into a loving Jewish family. Most of her immediate family was tragically murdered during the Holocaust. Eva and her younger sister eluded the would-be killers and survived to be liberated. At the age of 18, Eva married one of those liberators, Paul Berger. They immigrated to Canada, and left Europe and the horrors of the Holocaust behind them. They worked hard to build a new life and raise a family. Eva was a very private person. Quiet, and unassuming, she kept her sorrow and grief to herself. Eva was the backbone of her family; a devoted wife, and a loving mother and grandmother. She expressed herself by keeping busy - cooking, sewing, and gardening. She worked relentlessly, taking care of everybody else first. Funeral services were held on Thursday, October 15, 2009. She was laid to rest at Rosh Pina Memorial Park, joining her husband Paul who predeceased her in 2004. Pallbearers were Les Rykiss, Neil Rykiss, Stephen Chapman, Simon Eisbrenner, Adam Eisbrenner and Michael Rice. We would like to thank our extended family and our friends for the outpouring of kindness and support. We would also like to thank the staff of Misericordia C6. The kindness, respect and consideration shown to Eva in her final weeks was heartwarming, and made a difficult time more bearable. It was greatly appreciated. If you are so inclined, please make a contribution to the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg, or to a charity of your choice.
