Marie Louise Bergmark
January 20, 1929 – October 17, 2020
Marie Louise J. Bergmark passed away in on October 17, 2020 in the loving arms of her family. Born in January 1929, Marilou raised a family with her husband, Ed, in Northport, New York, then moved to Beckley, West Virginia, to Ocean Pines, Maryland. In 2016, she moved to Lexington Park to live with her daughter, Christine, Brett Grohsgal and Ali.
Marilou and Ed were devoted and loving companions for more than 65 years. Although Marilou’s adult life was spent in New York, West Virginia and Maryland, her heart and soul remained in the New York and Nantucket of her youth.
Marilou’s kindness, generosity and open heart were known far and wide. Her gifts were astounding social graces, cooking skills, loyalty, wit, and intellect. What brought her joy were friends, travel, big dogs, conversation, lobster, scotch, and good company.
She leaves behind her, son, David Nels Bergmark, and daughters Christine L. Bergmark and Jocelyn A. Jemison; also son-in-law Brett Grohsgal and granddaughter Allesandra Bergmark, son-in-law Colin Jemison, daughter-in-law Terry Bergmark, grandson Joseph Bergmark and family, Hilary and Ian, and grandson David Bergmark and family, Jennifer and Ava.
We will miss her bright eyes, bright smile and bright mind.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the St Mary’s Hospice, St. Mary’s County, MD, would be appreciated.
