Hazel was born on January 8, 1921, to Bert and Mabel Sandberg in Plummer Township, Divide County, North Dakota. She graduated from Crosby High School in 1938. She attended Minot State Teachers College receiving her Standard Teaching degree in 1940. She went on to teach at Max Country School in North Dakota. This is where she met the love of her life, Gilbert J. Berg, and they were married on January 17, 1942, in Seattle, Washington. They lived in Max, Seattle, Glasgo, Cavalier and then settled in Walhalla in 1955. In 1966 she assisted many in the area to receive their GEDs in an Adult Education Program and in 1968, she went to work at Walhalla Public School as a teacher’s aide. In 1976 she graduated from UND completing her bachelor’s degree in education. She taught for 20 years at St. Boniface and Walhalla Public School, retiring in 1985.

Hazel enjoyed embroidery, knitting, crocheting, and sewing but her favorite hobby was reading. If she didn’t have a novel to read, she would read the encyclopedias.
