Obituary for Roberta "Bert" Bergen

DURHAM: Roberta “Bert” Bergen, 75, passed away on Thursday, September 27, 2018 at Duke University Hospital in Durham. She was born in Geary Co., Kansas to the late Granville Robert Berkley and Emma Mary Evers Berkley. In addition to her parents, Mrs. Bergen was also predeceased by her brothers, Edward Berkley, Norman Berkley, Ray Berkley; and sisters, Marilyn Welters, Carol Cohorst.

She was a wife, mother and grandmother who fiercely loved her family and friends. She was a bright, complicated woman who took pride in doing things that were unique just like her. She was just as at home traveling anywhere in the states and other countries as she was cheering on her beloved Duke Blue Devils. She was a voracious reader who so enjoyed book club and her friends there. She utilized her talents and determination for her work life with her career spanning from assisting with the Duke Children’s Classic to her final position as the building manager at the Duke Law School for which she was presented with the Duke President’s Award. She loved animals, especially dogs, and the feeling was mutual. In her retirement, she found joy researching her family’s genealogy.

Mrs. Bergen is survived by her husband, Lynn Allen Bergen; daughters, Chyrise Anne Bradley (Chris), Heather Lyn Hunt (David); son, Dace Allen Bergen; and grandchildren, Kyle Logan Bradley (Makayla); Rachel Ione Holliday (Matthew), Gavin Michael Bergen, Bryson Lynn Bergen, Dawson Gregory Bergen, Chloe Aidan Hunt, and Malia Edan Hunt.
