Obituary: Catherine Anne (nee Carlson) Bersell

Catherine Anne (nee Carlson) Bersell checked out of this world May 18, 2012.

Cay was born and raised in Minneapolis. She married Ralph Bersell in 1946. In 1962, they and their three children moved to Prescott, Ariz., and stayed until 1974. The most important thing to Cay was family. She was a devoted Lutheran and lived her faith daily. She loved all things Swedish. Christmas at Cay and Ralph's was a traditional Swedish Jul. Her family will cherish the memories always.

Cay was preceded in death by her husband of 51 years, Ralph Bersell. Her three sisters and two brothers also preceded her. She is survived by three children, Peter (Jill) Bersell, John (Joann) Bersell and Catherine (Cary) Clonts; seven grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.

The family wishes to thank the staff of Wisdom Garden for the compassionate, loving care they provided mom.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Achieve Builds Confidence, 1725 E. Prince, Tucson, AZ 85719, or Wisdom Garden, 9890 Martin Drive, Tucson, AZ 85749. A memorial service will be at 2:30 p.m. June 2, 2012, at Resurrection Lutheran Church, 11575 N. 1st, Oro Valley.
