Obituary of Norman Martin Berglund
Norman Martin Berglund
(October 9, 1928 - May 29, 2019)
Our love knows no bounds. Today we mourn the loss of Norman and Audrey who wished to be together even in their afterlives.
Norman passed away due to medical complications at the St. Mary’s hospital on May 29, 2019 at the age of 90 years. Audrey passed after a long battle with Alzheimer’s on April 26, 2017 at the age of 88 years.
Norman was born to Grace and Hjalmer Berglund. He lived all his life in the Edberg area. A hard working farmer, he also believed in giving back to his community. He taught hunter training, helped with 4-H, Scouts, served on the School Board and more. Norman’s greatest passions were to fly his airplane and go big game hunting, with his good friends.
Audrey was born in Ferintosh where she was raised on her family farm by Chris and Hazel Graff. She loved her horses and her family. Continuing her education, she attended college in Olds. Any beauty the earth could provide was her specialty. From stunning flowers to a bountiful vegetable garden that’s where you would find Audrey, always with her feet planted firmly on the ground. She decorated beautiful cakes, sewed quilts and loved ELCW ladies.
Norman and Audrey wed on July 9, 1951. They built and grew their own family farm just west of Edberg. They loved to go fishing and visiting relations. Both were active in their community and their church.
Audrey and Norman are survived by their daughter Cheryl (Neil) Curtis; grandchildren Kim (Rob) Albers, Billy and Brad Dingman, Kenny Berglund, Chad (Karley) Berglund, Tara Abrahamson, Amanda (Neal) Beaton, Joel (Heidi) Abrahamson, Cary Abrahamson, Austin (Sharene) Breure, Garrett Curtis, Danielle Curtis; and much to their joy, numerous great-grandchildren. Sadly they were predeceased by their children Ricky Berglund, Marilyn Abrahamson and Brant Berglund. Who are missed everyday.
Living long lives both passed away with no regrets, tons of friends and a big family who loved and cherished them both.
A Funeral Service was held at 1:00 p.m., Tuesday, June 4, 2019 from the Messiah Lutheran Church, 4810 - 50th Street Camrose with Rev. Bev Swanson officiating. Norman and Audrey have been inurned together at the Fridhem Cemetery South.
If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions in Norman's memory may be made to the Fridhem Cemetery South (near Ferintosh).
