Lisa was born February 15, 1964, in Big Timber to Lloyd and Linda Berg. Being born with cataracts, Lisa underwent seven surgeries to improve her eyesight by the age of one. Lloyd reminisced that around the time of her first birthday, she was fitted with glasses and as soon as the frames touched her face, she took her first steps toward him — from then on, she never stopped running toward her loving family.
As a girl, Lisa was active on her family’s ranch south of Shawmut and in the Trail Blazers 4-H Club, through which she showed heifers and steers. When she was older, she enrolled in college classes at Eastern Montana College for a quarter, then changed paths and earned a Certificate in Accounting from Montana Vocational Technical Institute in Billings. She then came home to help her father out on the ranch, and later moved to Big Timber where she had numerous jobs in town over the years, working at: All Creatures Vet Clinic, Sweet Grass County Mental Health Center, Pioneer Medical Center, Custom Survey Solutions Inc., Family Dollar, the Fort, and owned a small business, “It’s a Wrap” where she designed and printed promotional materials for local businesses and families.
Lisa spent many hours volunteering in the Big Timber community. Most notably, she volunteered with the Sweet Grass County High School Band, the Big Timber Elementary School PTA, and was a leader in the Otter Creek 4-H Club.
Lisa loved to craft, cross stitch, garden, watch birds, travel, work on her computer, do puzzles, and (as she was a Berg) play cards. Her favorite past time, however, was “bragging on her son,” Cliff — and for good reason. At the end of April, Cliff will graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science, a second Bachelor of Science in Political Science, and two minors in history and biology. Cliff was Lisa’s crown jewel; she was incredibly proud of him.
Lisa is preceded in death by her grandparents, Henry and Ruth Berg; grandparents Arnold and Lucille Warp; and several aunts and uncles. Lisa is survived by her son Cliff Weller; parents Lloyd and Linda Berg; Sister Lois Cremer (Leo); niece Megan Cremer; nephew Lane Cremer (Mayzie); Special Aunt Tookie Gee; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Lisa’s memorial service will be April 23, 2022, at the Big Timber Evangelical Church at 2:00 p.m. with a graveside service and reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, the Bergs ask donations to be made to the Sweet Grass County 4-H council.
