|Love and memories last forever...|
Edith E. (Vernick) Bergmann passed away Thursday, August 25, 2016, at the Terraces at Parke Place in Sewell, NJ, after ten months living with cancer. She was 91.
Born in Philadelphia on Feb. 21, 1925, she lived in Abington, PA and Pine Hill, NJ. Edith was "Edie" to her friends and sisters, "Mom" to her children, and "Bubbie" to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She raised five children and had a 30-year career as a computer systems analyst at the Insurance Company of North America (later CIGNA). Edie loved music, books, word puzzles, and, more than anything, her family. She was the glue that held us together, and she was the center of the annual Bergmann Family Gathering -- beginning in 1983 and still going strong. Each one of us was touched by Edie's wisdom, gentle humor, and unconditional love. She showed us how to love life and each other.
Edie is survived by her sister Belle; children Jake (Molly), Seth (Sue), Ann Wilken (Jeff), Warren (Terry), and Dan (Anne); thirteen grandchildren, and thirteen great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, Morris and Sarah Vernick, her sisters Eleanor and Lily, her brothers, Joseph and Herman and our father, Morris S. Bergmann (married 1946-1974).
A memorial event will be held at the 2017 Bergmann Family Gathering.
"Seth, Warren, Dan, Jake and Anne,
Edie was a very special part of our lives for a long time. Still kept in touch via email on occasion. My son Paul and I have fond memories.
Sorry for you loss.
"It is with such fondness that I remember dear, Edie, and I hope that her memory will forever be a blessing to you, her large and wonderful and beloved family. I regret not having been a part of her life in the last few years, but will forever be grateful for the memories we shared while at INA and CIGNA. She truly was a programming pioneer and was a "mother" to almost everyone in that data processing unit."
Have a suggestion for us?
