Edean Berglund passed away on April 11, 2019, in Billings. She was born on June 4, 1951, in Havre.
She grew up on the family farm west of Big Sandy with her parents, Dorothy and Alf Berglund, and sister, Barbara. Edean lovingly teased Barb as being “the good sister” and then smiled. Regardless of where Edean lived and life led her, Barb was her truest source of friendship, support and love. Edean lived in Olympia, Washington, for 30 years, but in 2012, due to declining health, she moved to Morningstar Senior Living in Billings to be near her sister.
Edean attended Lincoln School, a one-room school near the Berglund farm, for grades one through eight, graduating from Big Sandy High School in 1969. After one year at Montana State University-Bozeman, she completed a history degree in 1973 from Augsburg College in Minneapolis. Guided by her love of books and science, in 1977, Edean earned a master’s degree from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland in library science, specializing in medicine.
Edean is survived by her sister, Barbara Berglund of Billings, and many friends and relatives.
Special thanks for the staff of Morningstar and Stillwater Hospice for their kind and patient care.
