Dr. James F. and Ellen Berg

Dr. Jim and Ellie Berg were honored with a buffet reception for their 50th wedding anniversary on April 19, 2008.

The reception was hosted by their five children and held at the lovely Chandor Gardens in Weatherford.

The Bergs were married April 19, 1958, at Gesu Catholic Church in Milwaukee, Wis.

They moved to Mineral Wells in 1968, where Dr. Berg served as a lieutenant colonel in the United States Army at Fort Wolters for two years. He then practiced general surgery in Mineral Wells and surrounding counties until his retirement in 2000.

Ellie, a registered nurse, was a homemaker until their children were grown. After that time she was office manager for his practice until she, too, retired.

They have one son, Jim, of San Antonio, Texas, and four daughters, Wendy Carmody of Lawrence, Kan., Nancy Scoggins of Burnet, Texas and Lisa Garrett and Linda Kessler, of Mineral Wells. They also have eight grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Jim and Ellie were honored to share the joy of their lives together with their children and their families, Ellie’s twin sister, Anne, and husband, Ed, from Hendersonville, N.C., Jim’s two sisters and husbands, Dory and Charlie Frank and Alice and Roy Wiberg, of Amherst Junction, Wis., Jim’s brother Dick and wife, Rosemary, of Sarasota, Fla., and many of their friends from Mineral Wells and the surrounding area.
