Shirley Berger, a remarkable lady who did not meet a piece of fabric she did not like. Preferably known as “Nana,” Shirley entered eternal life on Saturday, September 12, 2020. Nana was born June 29, 1933 to Adolf and Amanda (Bush) Burk in Morris, Illinois. She married Kenneth A. “Kenny” Berger on November 14, 1954 to which they had two sons, Brian and Gerald. She was a very skilled organist, who played at Trinity Lutheran Church, where she was a member. She also used her talents to musically entertain at many different local venues. Shirley was employed by Herscher Grain elevator for more than 30 years. Nana thoroughly enjoyed creating anything and everything with her fleet of sewing machines and her endless yards of fabric. When she wasn’t behind the sewing machine, other joys that filled her heart were baking and cooking and just being in the kitchen, where she happily perfected the peanut butter cookie for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. For the last 17 years, Nana enjoyed traveling to many countries and snow birding every winter in Florida, where she made an endless supply of memories with Norman and a multitude of friends. One of Nana’s greatest joys was being able to watch her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren participate in all the activities they loved. Nana spent countless hours and drove countless miles to support all generations of her beloved family. Nana is survived by her longtime boyfriend, Norman Bauer of  Bonfield; son and daughter-in-law, Brian and Rebecca Berger of Herscher; three grandchildren: Cassandra Royal (Tom) of Chebanse; Kenneth Berger (Amanda) of Herscher; and Katherine Hull (Seth) of Gibson City; and nine great-grandchildren: Kenneth, Remi, Josie and Annabelle Royal; Preston, Arthur and Eloise Berger; and David and Eden Hull. She is also survived by her two sisters: Barb Morphey of Mazon and Linda Beiswanger (Terry) of Houston, Texas; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Kenneth; her son, Gerald; and a brother-in-law, Ronald Morphey. Nana was feisty and full of life. She truly lived until her last moments here on Earth. Her faith in the Lord reassures us that her spirit lives on in Heaven. She is fiercely loved and will forever be missed. We love you, Nana . . .
