Berdy was an avid gardener that spent many hours tending to her flower gardens and was a collector of the Royal Family, especially Princess Diana. She adored her family, especially her grandchildren and her great grandchild. She looked forward to holidays and decorating, cooking, and the gathering that went with them. Christmas was her favorite holiday, having the house covered in decorations and multiple trees. Fourth of July was a close tie, in that her and Bill developed a family tradition of a Fourth of July snowball fight. She was an amazing mother, wife, sister, and grandmother that will be deeply missed.
She is survived by husband, Bill, Jr.; daughters, Denise (Scott) Pyle, Deborah Munoz-Parra, and Kristi (Christopher) Marshall; grandchildren, Ashley Pyle, Justin Pyle, Dillon Thompson, Nicholas Sacchetti, Gabriel Sacchetti, Austin Galovich, Logan Marshall, and Karis Marshall; great granddaughter, Alexandria Thompson; siblings, Ramon (Irma) Soto, Aurora (George) Avedicion, Yolanda Soto, Ruben (Sandra) Soto, Sandra (Robert) Rubi, and Yvonne Alawne; and special brother-in-law, Alex Galovich.
She was preceded in death by her parents.
