Obituary for Elizabeth M. (nee Weak) "Lovey" Berk

May 6, 2019


Our beloved mother, Elizabeth M. (nee Weak) Berk, "Lovey", passed away peacefully on Monday, May 6, 2019 at Northwest Hospital in Seattle, WA. She was 101 years young. Born March 5, 1918 in Philadelphia, PA, she resided in Meadowbrook, PA with her parents, Charles H and Marie (Patterson) Weak. She married M. Stanford (Stan) Berk, on Valentine's Day 1948. Lovey and Stan resided in Langhorne for many years. She was employed at the Langhorne Middletown Library until 1987.

Lovey moved to Southern Shores on the Outer Banks in North Carolina where she spent the happiest years of her life. She worked at Corner Stitch and Frame, a knitting and cross stitch shop in Kitty Hawk. She was a wonderful knitter, cross-stitcher and an avid reader. In 2009, Lovey suffered a stroke. In 2013 she had to leave her beloved Outer Banks for a rehab facility in Seattle. Though her heart was always in Langhorne, she remained in the Northwest until her death.

Lovey was preceded in death by her husband, Stan Berk in 1977.

She leaves behind her three children, Morton S. Berk (Rose Marie Ellis) of Newtown, Nancy Berk-Axelson (Kris Axelson) of Seattle, WA and Charles E. Berk of Langhorne, her dear friend Kathy Morrison of New Bern, NC and many friends and relatives who loved her greatly. She was the cool mom!
