Our beloved Mother, Grandmother and friend, Betty (Betty Boop) Bercier, 80, left this world peacefully on September 6th at Power County Nursing Home.
She came into this world on February 18th, 1942, in College Corner, Ohio to William Carl Kline Sr and Verna Mae (Wilson) Kline. Their family later returned to Idaho where she met and married Steve Joaquin Colungo Sr. They had 3 children: Steve Joaquin, Verna Marie and Pete Dewayne. They later divorced and she married the love of her life, Simon Peter (Popeye) Bercier Sr. They raised the older 3 and added Simon Peter Jr, Michael Lee, and Virginia Rose. They lived and worked in Aberdeen for many years before Simon’s untimely death, which left her mourning for the rest of her days.
