Norfolk—Evelyn Liskin Berger was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. to Ida and Joseph Liskin on February 13, 1923, and passed away June 10 at the age of 97.

She accompanied her husband, James Berger, M.D., an Army surgeon throughout the country until settling with her family in Norfolk in 1954. She was an avid cook, a passionate and devoted mother to her three children and fully supported her husband’s career in medicine. She retained her avid “Brooklyn” spirit throughout her life no matter what her life circumstances or health, and was an incredibly strong and positive influence on her family. She managed to have a sense of humor and presence of mind even to her last moments. Her entire family considered themselves blessed to have had her presence in the family for so many years.

She is survived by Keith (DeShawna) Berger, Jeff (Debbie) Berger, and Margie Berger, 9 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.

A graveside service took place with Rabbi Lawrence Forman officiating.
