Beryl Nyberg, 84, a lifelong resident of the Spirit/Ogema area, passed away Thursday, Oct. 15, 2020, at Ascension St. Mary’s Hospital in Rhinelander.
Beryl was born March 16, 1936, in Ogema to Benjamin and Elsie (Nelson) Lofquist. She married Rodger Nyberg on July 26, 1958. The pair spent 50 wonderful years together at their home in Spirit before his passing in 2008. Beryl was a telephone operator for a short time, but dedicated most of her life to raising her children and helping Rodger run the family farm. She was happiest when her house was filled with family, and always opened her heart and home to friends old and new. Beryl cherished her community connections as a longtime member of the Homemakers Club, an active member of the First Lutheran Church in Ogema, and a former Sunday School teacher. Those who knew her loved her, and those who loved her knew the boundlessness of her generosity, kindness, and warmth.
Surviving Beryl are her four children: Mark Nyberg, Ogema; Bruce (Rachelle) Nyberg, North Fond du Lac; Beth (Jim) Block, Minong; and Shelly (Jay) Kahle, Tomahawk; as well as her brother Dale (Barbara) Lofquist, Cherokee Village, AK. Beryl was the proud grandmother of eight grandchildren (Alicia, Kirsten, Annie, Jenna, Morgan, Connor, Jakob, and Nicholas) and one great grandson (Cayden), and she adored her many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Beryl was preceded in death by her parents Benjamin and Elsie Lofquist; husband Rodger Nyberg; brother James Wagner; sister Phyllis Wagner; and grandson Benjamin Block.
Memorials are appreciated to the First Lutheran Church in Ogema.
