Eugene K. Bergee

October 7, 1941 — March 25, 2022

Eugene Keith Bergee, 80, passed away peacefully in his Dilworth (MN) home surrounded by family on March 25, 2022. Eugene was born to Byron and Eleanor (Trom) Bergee on October 7, 1941, and grew up in Halstad, MN. He married Barbara Jean Jahner on March 20, 1962. They made their home in Dilworth where they raised their five children and formed many lasting friendships.

Gene was a generous and caring family man who retired from Nabisco after 32 years of delivering Oreos. In addition to his five children and their spouses, Gene was blessed with 17 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. He showed his love for family by lending a hand with projects, celebrating holidays, and attending special events and sporting activities. Gene spent many hours on his John Deere lawn tractor and rehomed countless gophers. His lawn was the envy of all who drove past his corner lot. Gene could often be found around the table playing cards, Yahtzee, marbles, and sharing stories.

Eugene will be dearly missed by his children Rahn (Elana) Bergee, Daniel (Kristen) Bergee, Susan Bergee, Sandra (Matt) Krieg, and Nancy (Ross) Wilson; his beloved grandchildren and great grandchildren; Gene is also survived by his brother, Gale (Linda) Bergee, brother-in-law, Niles (Shirley) Bjerke, one niece, three nephews.

Eugene was preceded in death by his wife, Barbara, both parents, and a sister, Sherry Bjerke. Visitation will be held on Tuesday, March 29, from 5:00-7:00pm at Dilworth Lutheran Church with a prayer service at 7:00pm. Funeral services will be held at Dilworth Lutheran Church on Wednesday, March 30, at 11:00am. A luncheon will be served immediately following the service with the burial at St. Joseph’s Cemetery, Moorhead. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be made to Gene’s faith community at Dilworth Lutheran Church.
