Born Pearl Synenberg in Indiana to parents of Polish and Russian descent, Mrs. Berg spent her childhood in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  She moved to California near the end of the 1920s, and nearly immediately met her husband Mark Berg, an immigrant from present-day Ukraine.  The two were married in 1931 and had two sons, and Mrs. Berg has lived in California ever since.  Widowed in 1989, Mrs. Berg maintains an active life.  She currently resides in her own home and is an active member of her synagogue.

Mrs. Berg’s age was validated by LongeviQuest on 18 January 2023 based on the research of Stefan Maglov.
