      Vada Bergman, 86, Burnside

      June 11, 1930 - June 21, 2016

      Vada Darlene (Nichols) Bergman, 86, of Burnside passed away after a long battle with congestive heart failure on June 21, 2016, at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City, Iowa. True to her cheerful nature, she flashed her big, beautiful smile as she left us.

      Vada was born on June 11, 1930, in Cantril, Iowa, the daughter of Herchel and Naomi (Humphrey) Nichols.

      Vada had three sisters, Veneta Merrick, Juanita Busby and Carlene Nichols (who died in infancy). She had four brothers, Carmon, Verlon, Lowell and Floyd.

      Vada graduated from Revere (Mo.) High School and taught rural school in Clark County, Mo. She married Delbert Bergman Dec. 25, 1947, in Kahoka, Mo. They moved to Burnside in 1948 and lived there throughout their married life.

      They had two sons, Robert LaCount (who died March 1, 1974) and Roger Lee. They had four grandchildren, Scott Robert (who died July 2, 1986), Simone Renee, Robert Lee, and Randall Paul. They recently had their hopes realized with the birth of their great-grandson, Logan Robert, born to Robert and his wife Nicole.

      A memorial service is at 10 a.m. July 9 at Thornber Cemetery in Powellton, with family receiving guests at a potluck luncheon immediately following at the Burnside Community Building.

      Vada was an advocate for cancer research after losing her son Robert to the disease. To continue that fight, the family asks that, in lieu of flowers, memorials be made payable to Hancock County Fights Cancer. Checks can be mailed to First Bankers Trust Company, 1395 Buchanan St, Carthage, IL 62321.
