Family members include:
Beloved wife of 76 years to the late Aaron Berg. Millie is survived by daughter, Brenda (Art) Friedman; sons, Richard (Made) Berg, Bob (Ro) Berg; and Chuck (Patricia) Berg; grandchildren, Cindy (Bob) Schnoll, Andy (Jenny) Friedman, Adam Berg, Ana (Leon) Adiputra, David (Jen) Berg, Carrie (Pat) Thomas, Grace (Alex) Sobieski, Bjorn Berg, Audrey Berg, Michael Berg, and Katie Berg; great-grandchildren, Annie Scholl, Jessica Schnoll, Lizzy Friedman, Nick Friedman, Sara Adiputra, Dylan Adiputra, Maya Berg, Benny Berg, Jack Thomas, Josie Sobieski, Desiree Sobieski; sisters Rae Bolnick and Annette Gurian; sister-in-law Charlotte Schuff and many loving nieces, nephews and friends.

The energetic, social daughter of David and Rose Schuff, Millie was born and raised in Detroit with her brother Ben and sisters, Rae and Annette. She graduated from Central High School during the Great Depression, and met the love of her life, Aaron Berg, when she was 17 years old. They were married one year later, and were always at each other’s side for the next 76 years. She raised her family in Huntington Woods. “Our house is where all of the kids’ friends hung out,” Millie said with great pride.

Millie always marveled “I lived long enough and happily enough to see all my dreams come true.” Her children and grandchildren know that all of the good in their lives emanated from the solid foundation of love and unconditional positive regard provided by Millie Berg.

As her mother Rose used to say, Millie was one in a million. Millie always had a good thing to say about everyone and everything. Her optimistic words were accentuated by her chuckle and infectious smile. She was not one to dwell on the negative. She taught her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, “It’s a beautiful world, enjoy it!”

Metro Detroit’s Jewish funeral homes have agreed that families should follow the directive of Centers for Disease Control and restrict the size of gatherings to no more than 10, for at least the month of April.

For now, in-person funeral attendance will be limited to only immediate family. Otherwise, funerals may be viewed live and recorded on chapel websites.

Together, we thank the community for understanding during this unusual and challenging time.
