NOVI — Nancy Linda Bergstrom, age 81, of Novi and formerly of Farmington Hills, died June 23, 2014, at Henry Ford Hospital. She was born Feb. 3, 1933, in Providence, R.I., the cherished only child of Howard and Olga Peterson.
On Dec. 20, 1952, Nancy married Robert Bergstrom; he preceded her death on Nov. 16, 2000. They co-owned Bergstrom Insurance Agency from 1958 to 1990.
Nancy is survived by her children, Cindy Yorke, Gary Bergstrom, Steven Bergstrom and her beloved daughter-in-law, Kim Bergstrom; grandchildren, Andrew Yorke, Hayley Tucker, Tyler Bergstrom, Erica Bergstrom and Adam Bergstrom; great-grandchildren, Miles, Cole, Elle and Max; and many dear friends, including Sue Haitz, Steve Napora and Bert Nisbet.
Nancy will always be remembered as a loving, kind and compassionate mother, grandmother and friend. She had a wonderful sense of humor and a ringing laugh. A gentle and blessed soul, Nancy was slow to anger and quick to forgive. Nancy loved the Detroit Tigers, all things Swedish and moose tracks ice cream. She remembered everyone’s birthday and took special care to choose exactly the right greeting card.
Nancy was a lifelong member of Faith Covenant Church and was most proud to be a co-founder of the church’s St. Lucia celebration, which brought so much joy to all each December.
