Paulette Ann Berg, 65, of Kinmundy, formally of Altamont, passed away peacefully on early Tuesday afternoon Jan. 30, 2018 at 5:55 p.m. at her home in Kinmundy.

Her Christian funeral was conducted at 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 3 at the Immanuel Lutheran Church, Altamont, Illinois with the Rev. Bernard M. Ross III officiating.

Paulette was born on March 19, 1952 in the Mark Greer Hospital, Vandalia; one of six siblings into the Christian family of Paul and Elda Berg. She was baptized on March 30, 1952 at the Bethlehem Lutheran Church and on May 29, 1966 confirmed her faith at the Immanuel Lutheran Church where she has continued her membership. Paulette began her education at the Immanuel Lutheran Grade School, then graduated from Altamont Community High School with the class of 1970. She then received her BS degree in education from Eastern Illinois University in 1975.

Paulette then served as the activity director for the Pleasant Acres Nursing Home in Altamont before beginning her 34 and a half year teaching career at Altamont Interparish Lutheran School, St. Elmo, Beecher City, and most recently at South Central School District in Kinmundy. Paulette’s family was important as well as her interest in teaching kindergarteners reading. She was active in 4-H for years both as a youth member in public speaking and as an adult leader at the Effingham County Fair. She also assisted the Effingham County Fair servicing in the office duties during the fair.

Special in her heart was her ability to travel, her family and her support of the St. Louis Cardinals. With her numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins there were many forms of activities she enjoyed attending.

Paulette leaves to mourn in her passing: two brothers, Dale (Connie) Berg of Altamont and Dean (Sherry) Berg of Louisville; three sisters, Pat (Steve) Robinson of Edgewood, Donna (Dean) Stuckemeyer of Altamont, and Pam Kepley of Indianapolis, IN; 12 nieces and nephews; 11 great nieces and nephews; and numerous cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents.
