Pearl Carlah Berg was born June 23, 1923 at the family home near Pennville, SD to Anders and Olive (Hendrickson) Pederson. She attended Witt Country School through the 8th grade, and graduated from Reeder High School in 1941. Growing up Pearl was baptized, confirmed, and attended Golden Valley Lutheran Church in Reeder. Pearl received her teaching certificate from Northern State in Aberdeen in 1942. This allowed her to teach in rural schools. She also attended Black Hills State in Spearfish for 2 years.

On June 24, 1951 Pearl was united in marriage to Lowell Berg. Together they farmed near Mt. Vernon for over 45 years before retiring in 1998. They sold their farm and moved to an acreage near Mitchell in 2001.

Pearl and Lowell were members of Trinity Lutheran Church while living on the farm. After moving to Mitchell, Pearl became a member of Amazing Grace Lutheran Church. Pearl had a very strong faith in the love of her savior, Jesus Christ.

Pearl and Lowell were blessed with 3 children through adoption, Joanne, Paul, and Elaine. Pearl loved and enjoyed all her family. She also enjoyed conversations of the hard times growing up during the Depression.
