BERGER, Gladys Ethel Hazelwood, passed away on June 25 2019. Born in James City County, Va., on October 21 1918, to James Volasca "Volly" Hazelwood and Tabatha Ann Hicks Hazelwood; the fifth of eight children. Married Jesse W.W. Berger and raised two sons together, William R. and Eugene T. The family attended Falling Creek Baptist Church in Richmond. After Jesse's death she moved back to Hicks Island, her family, and beloved Liberty Baptist Church. Ethel never stopped working-in her kitchen, yard or at her sewing machine. At 97, she moved to Wilmington, N.C., to be with her three granddaughters; she finally allowed herself to be waited on! A celebration of life, followed by lunch and fellowship at Liberty Baptist Church in Lanexa, Va., will be held Saturday, July 27 2019, at 11 a.m. Interment will be private.
