In Memoriam

We would like to say thank you to everybody who has donated to us in support of our mission.  Every donation helps us rescue a dog that can be trained and give a second chance at life by helping a disabled Texas Veteran.  While we mourn those that are lost, we are thankful to those who donate in their memory.

Edith Marion Carlberg

7 January 1918 - 7 July 2017

Edith Marion Carlberg passed away peacefully in her sleep the morning of July 7, 2017 at the wonderful age of 99 1/2 years young.  She was the only child born January 7, 1918 to Frank Bartell and Henrietta Weller.  After returning from WWI, her father passed away in 1919 during the flu pandemic.  Edith known affectionately as Edie was raised by her mother on the family farm in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.  She grew up loving animals and was a fervent horseback rider.  At the age of 18, she met and married an Army officer named Capt. Lawrence Carlberg.  They had a lifelong romance of 67 years that took them on adventures and travels all over the world.  Edie was a proud military wife.  She enjoyed dancing, reading novels, playing card, fashion, spending time with friends and most importantly her family.  Larry retired after 30 years' service as an Air Force Colonel in 1959.  They happily lived out their dats to the fullest at Air Force Village in San Antonio, TX.  Edie is survived by her two loving sons Col. Ronald and wife Gwendolyn Carlberg, CW4 Douglas Carlberg and wife Patti Meisetschleager, Granddaughter Jody Astrom and husband Mika Astrom, cousins Paul, Lina, Leana, Marcus Carlberg.  Services will be held at Arlington National Cemetery in the fall.  In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Wounded Warriors or VA Dogs of Texas.
