Berger Funeral
Will Be Friday
at Cedar Falls

Cedar Falls.—The funeral of Mrs Effie Higley Berger, 76, former resident here, will be conducted at 2 p.m. Friday at Brown chapel Cedar Falls. Rev. John Schmidt of the Free Methodist church will officate. Burial will be in Greenwood Cemetery.

Mrs. Berger died at the home of her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. S. J. Simms, eight miles east of Nashua. She had made her home with them in recent years. The family moved to the farm from here in March.

Mrs. Berger was born in Newton Wis., April 4, 1856*.

*Gravestone says she was born in 1857

The following research information credit to Sandra Wamsley:
Daughter of Orin and Sarah Loomis Caulkins. She married first to William H. Cronan at Algona, Kossuth Co. Iowa and had two children: Clyde and Mae. Her second marriage was to Harlow Hazard Higley at Cedar Falls, Black Hawk Co. IA in July of 1889. They had one son, Orin Harlow Higley, who lived on the border of Oregon and Washington. He is believed to be buried in Wasco Co. Oregon, but that remains to be proved. Effie married third to Mr. Berger and that is all I know about him except that about 1909 they adopted twin baby boys, Carl and Victor. Victor was weak and died ten days after they adopted him.
