|Let the memory of Nancy be with us forever|
"Hey Nance! hopefully not eating too much Chocolate today. Another year has gone, but you have not been forgotten. Much Love! Chris, Robbie, Sam, and Mel Berge"
"Continually grateful for Nancy's life and the beautiful gift she gave us in Brad. Kim. Dana and Mallory ❤️"
"I will always think of Nancy when I enter the doors of Craig Hospital. She and I spent time laughing about the fun things that occurred while she was involved with the Craig Board. She will be missed by many and count me in that group!"
"YouWhoo!!! A year has passed and we continuously keep you in our thoughts and prayers. The other day "you are my sunshine" came on a kids channel and it reminded me of when you used to sing that to us! I will never take your sunshine away. :) Robbie Prays that you aren't eating too much Chocolate up in Heaven and are having veggies also so you don't get a tummy ache! Thinking of you today.
Your oldest grandson Chris-, and much love from the rest of us as well!"
"I remember Nancy and my mother, Beverly Austin, were so worried that Brad and I were never going to get married. But we did marry in September, 1980. I recall how warmly I was welcomed into the Berge family by Nancy and Bill, and Brian and Steve (along with some hazing and teasing).
I fondly remember family trips to The Wigwam Club and a memorable trip to Canyon Ranch. Nancy was not only a wonderful mother-in-law and grandmother, but she was a good friend. Her smile is famous. She had a great sense of humor and loved being silly. We will miss “the Nance” but we are blessed to have been a part of her life."
"I first meant Nancy when Kim Berge and I, recent college graduates, moved from Colorado Springs to Denver to further our careers. Nancy and Bill not only welcomed Kim and me into their home, they stockpiled a U-Haul load of our belongings in their basement until we settled into our own housing and respective jobs. For several weeks we all cooked, played and even cleaned and gardened together in the Berge family home. Nancy's generosity, dry humor, wisdom and patience! for two young adults at loose ends are unforgettable. During every rendezvous since, she exuded the same warmth and sparkle in the eye. May we all learn from Nancy's knack for living in the moment, overlooking inconvenience, and finding levity in moments inopportune."
"Life comes wonderfully full-circle and is that much richer when you are given the blessing of knowing the parents of your dear friends! On her many visits to Santa Fe to spend time with Brad, Kim, Dana and Mallory, Nancy was indeed that blessing to our family. She always made us feel special and cared for, and to be with her was to experience lots of laughter and joy and life. Annie and Michael"
"When my Kim fell in love with Brad Berge, I scored three ways, a wonderful son in law and dear friends Nancy and Bill Berge! I feel truly blessed having known Nancy and Bill and having their middle son as part of my family. Bev Austin"
"Nancy was a joy to be around with a smile that could light up a room. She was involved with Craig Hospital for many years and she and I enjoyed looking at some of the photos from the old Craig Hospital near Colfax. She was a vital part of the growth of Craig and was a respected friend and Board member."
"I remember Nancy for her giving spirit. One Christmas, we stopped by their home My 3 year old loved the bubble lights on the tree. She took one right off the tree and gave it to him!!! We have had bubble lights on our tree every year since. It might seem like a small thing but it was huge in the eyes of my child and created a lasting memory for us."
"I think I can clarify Nancy's service at the gas station at Gunnison. She was on her way home to Denver and was sleeping in the back seat of the car being driven by her husband, Bill. Bill stopped for gas without knowing Nancy had taken advantage of the opportunity to use the toilet. Bill got back in the car and headed for home. Somewhere along the way he was stopped by a police officer who informed him of Nancy's whereabouts. The event was the principal source of conversation at a rehearsal for a Law Club show a short time later. I am now 90. Whatever my maladies are my memory of Bill and Nancy is clear. They were a wonderful couple. Jack"
