June K. Berg’s Gift of “Mystery Date Night’ Tickets

June 1994In the year 2013, the Redeemer Lutheran Church in Fridley introduced and sponsored a very special event for marriage couples. This event is called the “Mystery Date Night” and was described in a July 1st, 2013 announcement as:

‘Put some mystery in your marriage. Show up to church with your spouse and leave the details to us! Come dressed for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes. Dinner is included. The mystery bus will be leaving promptly at 4 pm form Redeemer Fridley Campus so please make sure you come at 3:45 to sign in. We will take you on an adventurous date for two!

The day of the event was designated as Saturday August 17th from 3:45 to 9 p.m.

The event is sponsored by the Church's  Redeemer’s Marriage Ministry.

June was invited to participate in the event. I cannot think of any events that June would be more thrilled to participate in. June and my 56 years of marriage was one of my life’s greatest blessings! Our marriage was ended early when June passed away from complications of Alzheimer’s after an exhausting struggle of almost 12 years.

The following notice of June’s participation in this event appeared in the above notice and will be in each weekly church bulletin until the event has been held…

“Scholarships are available to anyone having economic hardships or budget difficulties as a love gift from June K. Berg and as a reflection of God’s Love.”

Each recipient of tickets from June will also receive a personal letter from June with her picture and short note about June and Stan’s marriage and June’s life long membership in the Redeemer Lutheran Church. Also included in the letter will be a short note about June’s Alzheimer’s and her resulting death from the disease. The address of June’s Memorial Web site is included with an invitation to visit her site and learn more about Alzheimer’s. The letter ends with a wish for an enjoyable and fun time on their “Mystery Date Night” with God’s blessings on the night and for all the days of their marriage…

 Note: The funding for June's gift tickets comes from June's share of June and Stan's mutual life saving' is truly a gift from June! 



Purple AngelJune and Stan were both appointed as Purple Angel World Dementia Ambassadors  (October 2013) for the purpose of promoting world wide awareness of Alzheimer's and the dementia diseases. Such an awareness will in turn  promote funding for research to find a cure and to promote proper care practices. June was appointed an honorary Purple Angel Ambassador with Stan as her representative in order to promote her many  charitable programs that all have an Alzheimer's and dementia awareness connection. June is the only resident of Heaven to have received this honor...and who actually lives among the Angels...The Purple Angel world headquarters is in Devon, United Kingdom.
