Brevard - Betty Underwood Berg, beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away early in the morning of December 14, 2019, at Mission Hospital in Asheville.
Betty was born on January 4, 1927 in Paw Creek, Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, the daughter of the late Ralph Sidney and Reamer Neal Underwood. She was predeceased by her first husband, Carl B. Sheppard, and her second husband, William A. Keyser, and all of her siblings, Mildred Davis, Ralph Underwood, Jr., Doris Groover, and Laura Coggins.
Betty graduated from Paw Creek High School, Women’s College (BS), and Appalachian State University (MEd). She taught in Gaston and Mecklenburg County for 31 years, taking some time off to begin a family with her husband Carl, and retiring in 1984 shortly after Carl was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. They were married for 39 years.
Betty married Bill Keyser in 1991 and moved with him to Transylvania County, living in Connestee Falls until his death in 1999. Her third husband, Robert L. Berg, she claimed as the love of her life. His kindness, tenderness, and the attentiveness shown to her were noted by all those who knew them. They would have been married 20 years this coming February.
A quilter, Betty used her skills to create masterpieces which won her awards and which she freely gave away to sons, grandchildren and nieces and nephews, often supplying baby quilts for new arrivals in the family. Due to recent illness, she was unable to complete a particularly beautiful and intricate quilt on which she had worked for two years.
A world traveler, Betty had a map in her sewing room that became a pin cushion over the years, and she filled albums with photos of her trips. She loved finding new places to visit with differing modes of travel, and she found that Bob was the perfect travel partner.
Betty was devoted to her three sons to whom she was a trusted adviser and defender. She always loved a family gathering, particularly with her sons who loved her as she loved them. The home she created with Bob was a warm and inviting place that was open for her sons, their wives and children, and her extended family, including her two step-daughters who she claimed as her own. She also cared deeply about her many nieces and nephews, eagerly asking for news of the events of their lives.
Betty was a consistent and faithful member of the First Methodist Church in Brevard. She rarely missed attending, serving as a greeter and reader for the church she so loved.
Survivors include her husband; her sons, Mike of Tega Cay, SC, Phil (Melissa) of Brevard, and Tim (Donna) of Belmont, NC; daughters Nancy (Kurt) Feero and Barb (Joseph) Friedrich, eight grandchildren, Jenn and Tory, Heather, Matthew, Christian, Caleb, Carl, and James, and six great-grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held on her birthday, January 4, 2020, 1pm, at the First Methodist Church of Brevard with a reception will follow.

Mike, Phil, Tim, and family;
Sorry for the loss of your mother, Betty Underwood Berg. I remember your mother very well over the years. She sang in the choir at Mt. Holly First Baptist Church for years with Virginia Jones and Rachel Baker. They have all passed now. Heaven has gained another angel now. Singing in heaven with her friends from FBC. Sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time.
