Sister Angeline "Isabe" Berger, 83, St. Joseph, Minn., died peacefully at St. Scholastica Convent at 6 a.m. on May 24, 2007.

Services were held in St. Joseph.

Sister Angeline, the ninth of Raphael and Mathilda (Lantz) Berger's 13 children, was born March 13, 1924, on a wheat farm near Dickinson. She attended the district school with a break of half a year at the Catholic School in Dickinson to prepare for her First Holy Communion. She graduated in 1938 and helped her mother at home until she went to St. Benedict's Monastery on Oct. 29, 1943.

On June 21, 1944, she was received into the novitiate as Sister Angeline. She made first monastic profession on July 11, 1945, and perpetual monastic profession on July 11, 1948. Her golden jubilee in 1995 and 60-year anniversary in 2005 were happy celebrations.

Sister Angeline was a diligent worker in whatever ministry she found herself. Deeply devoted to prayer herself, in letters to family and friends she would encourage them to pray.

Now in her new home in heaven, we are assured that God will graciously lend an ear to her intercessions.

Sister Angeline is survived by the sisters of her Benedictine community; one brother, George (Rosemary) Berger, Dickinson; and one sister, Mathilda (Lee) Nielsen, Billings, Mont.

She was preceded in death by seven brothers; Raphael, Michael, Gabriel, Leo, Alphonse, John and Valentine Berger; and three sisters, Perpetua Berger, Marie Kilwein and Barbara Gress.
