1916 - Dorothy Jane Bergman - 2014

Dorothy Jane (Foster) Bergman was born on September 18, 1916 in Ingomar, Montana, to Frank and Agnes (Graf) Foster. The family moved back to Minnesota when Dorothy was four years old. They lived in several areas of Minnesota including Akeley, Fulda, and Balaton. Dorothy was united in marriage to Ken Bergman on April 10, 1941 in Slayton, Minnesota. Following their marriage they farmed in the Avoca, Minneosta and Slayton areas until 1960, when they built Broadway Bowl in Slayton. Dorothy and Ken moved to Thief River Falls, Minnesota in 1967, where Ken managed the Family Bowl and Dorothy opened the 707 Beauty Shop. Both were avid bowlers and snowmobilers. Dorothy passed away peacefully on March 18, 2014 at the age of 97. She was able to leave this world from her own home, thanks to the efforts of her son Doug and Hospice of the Red River Valley.

Dorothy is survived by her daughters: JoEllen (Jason) Blixrud, Maple Lake, and Sharon (Russ) Mobraaten, Billings, MT; Doug Bergman, Thief River Falls, MN and one grandson Jeff (Joyce) Lewis, Chisago City, MN and their three children. She was preceded in death by her husband Ken; son David and grandson James Lewis.
