Nancee V. Berglund
Oct. 19, 1936 — Jan. 25, 2016
Nancee V. Berglund, age 79, of Pewaukee, went home to be with the Lord on January 25, 2016, following a medical procedure.
Nancee was born October 19, 1936, in Ashland, to the late Walter and Blanche (Benning) Lindblad. After completing secretarial school in Minneapolis, Nancee married her high school sweetheart, David Berglund — “the best husband in the whole world!” The couple made their home in the Waukesha area for nearly 59 years until David’s death in May 2015.
From 1963 to 1989, Nancee served as church secretary for the Waukesha Bible Church. For the next 25 years, she was employed as business office administrator for the Edward Jones Company, retiring in 2014. Her dedicated work ethic and her efficiency, her sparkly personality, and wonderful sense of humor endeared her to all who knew her. She was uniquely “one of a kind!”
Nancee and David were the proud parents of 2 wonderful sons — Barry and Bruce — and they so enjoyed the numerous sporting events and music productions in which the boys were involved. They also enjoyed many special times “up north” with family and friends. They were very dedicated to their church, and their personal faith in Jesus Christ was the hallmark of their family life. Nancee loved the Lord, her husband and her family, and her friends, and she will be greatly missed by those who knew her best and loved her most.
Nancee is survived by her sons Barry (Ann) of Elkhorn, Neb., and Bruce (Cathleen) of Palatine, Ill; five grandchildren, Jennifer (Christian) Stillman of Omaha, Neb., Abby (Tyler) Anderson of Omaha, Billy (Hannah) Berglund of Littleton, Colo., Cameron and Taylor Berglund of Palatine, Ill.; and three great-granddaughters, Katherine and Charlotte Stillman, and Theodora Anderson. Nancee is also survived by her sister Sharon (Duwaine) Schmidt of Sheboygan.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, David Berglund; and her great-granddaughter Chandler Berglund.

Friends may call at the church from 1:00 PM until the time of service at 2:00 PM. Private burial will be in Mount Hope Cemetery, Ashland.
