Mildred V. Bergman

1921-2013

Mildred V. Bergman passed away Saturday, Jan. 12, after a long illness. She was born in Austin, Texas on April 4, 1921.
A homemaker, Mrs. Bergman also worked as a convenience store manager for many years. She accepted each day with a cheerful attitude and unbelievable courage. Always an inspiration to her family and all who knew her, Mrs. Bergman's most cherished roles were those of mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. The tremendous love she had for family and friends is a wonderful legacy.
Mrs. Bergman also loved time spent sitting by a lake or river fishing - whether the fish were biting or not.
She is survived by daughters, Patsy D'Spain and Noahlene Clark and her husband, Glenn; granddaughter Shelly Quarles and her husband, Kevin; grandson Mark D'Spain and his wife, Cindy; grandson Glenn Clark Jr.; great-grandchildren, Tommy and Michele Clark, Samantha and Marcus D'Spain, Kara Quarles and Amanda and Robert D'Spain; many nieces and nephews; special sister-in-law and lifelong friend, Bernice Casparis, of Johnson City; and beloved cousin Opal Neill of Lubbock, as well as by her longtime friend, Janine Bellman, and, finally, her constant companion, her dog, Lady.
Mrs. Bergman was predeceased by her parents, Edgar and Velma Bushnell Freeman; husband Noah E. Bergman; son-in-law, Carel L. D'Spain; and grandson Michael W. D'Spain.
A funeral service was held Tuesday, Jan. 15, at Grimes Funeral Chapels in Bandera, with burial following at Bandera Cemetery.
Pallbearers were Pat Boyle, Herb Syring, Bobby Clark, Jim Fitzgerald, Tom Hay and Richard Kinsey.
The family wishes to thank Peterson Hospice for the tremendous assistance they provided in our time of need.
