Looking for an obituary for Gunther Olaf Berg known to most as Olaf. He was born June 13, 1887 in Junction City, Portage, WI. and died in 1953. I believe in died in Waukegan, Lake, Illnois, but I'm not for certain on that. He married Emma Mathilda (Berg) Cole sometime before 1920 probably in Illinois as this is where he was living in the 1920 census.. Can anyone help me find this obituary? please contact Ann Borgman

I don't know if this is the same person, but I found a "Gunner Olaf BERG" in the Lake County, IL Veterans Buried Prior to July 1955. The listing reads as follows:

Buried in Pine View Cemetery, Benton TWP, Waukegan, IL

BERG, Gunner Olaf W-1 PFC Army 56 Guard Co ASC d. 3 May 1953

I didn't find an obituary, but I wasn't at the Waukegan library and wasn't looking in the Waukegan paper. If this is the same person that you're looking for, perhaps the date will help someone narrow down the search for the obit?

Good luck!
