Tillie Ruth Berger (nee Gordon), of Baltimore, MD, passed away on Saturday, January 9th, 2021 at the age of 96. She is survived by her sons, Wayne Gordon Berger and Glenn Gordon Berger, and was predeceased by her husband Ira N. Berger, siblings, Dora Shriber, Helen Zedd, Ida Roberts, and Joe, Sam, and Gerald Gordon, her sister-in-law, Shirlee Luskin Molotch, brother-in-law, Stuart L. Berger, her parents, Nathan and Pauline Gordon, her, father-in-law, Maurice Berger, and mother-in-law, Mollie Berger.

Tillie was married to the love of her life for 70 years, and made a beautiful home for Ira and her sons. Through all the ups and down of life, she did this with enormous grace, humility, and a kindness for all that she encountered. She is eagerly awaiting to see what Ira has planned for the next chapter of their story together, as Ira has been waiting so patiently to be together again. Wayne and Glenn want to thank the extraordinary staff and Tudor Heights for their unending compassion and care that was provided throughout this eight year journey.

I will miss that truly elegant lady. I've known her through all of my years at Tudor Heights. Her royal bearing and sense of humor uplifted all around her. She was of such a pleasant disposition. It was a privilege to have known her. She was always open to joking about the old days of Berger's Cars.

There was great sadness in our hearts when we learned of the loss of Aunt Tillie. We will always remember our few visits and how she would always ask "what can I get you".

Dear Wayne and Glenn, we share your sadness at the passing of your lovely Mother. An image came to me immediately from a child’s summer birthday party replete with a couple of swimming pools set up in the spacious back yard of our Forest Hill Road home. And there was Tillie, probably in her late 20’s, svelte and gorgeous in short shorts and a sleeveless Peter Pan collared shirt. Every hair in place, and even on a black and white photo, RED lips. She was gracious and kind, and your devotion was exceptional. In time your beautiful memories will put smiles back on your faces. We are smiling now knowing Tillie and Ira have reunited. Sending love

Sadly due to COVID, Steve and I will not be in Baltimore to share our final goodbyes with our beautiful Aunt Tillie. So to Wayne and Glenn and those that loved goes.
"To live in the hearts of those we leave behind is not to die" and we know that Aunt Till will live in our hearts forever. This elegant, quiet, charming and glamourous woman left us with memories that will last forever. We spent many wonderful times with her and our dear Uncle Ira. Their homes and their hearts were always open to us and our family and we loved our visits with both of them Aunt Tillie was always a gracious hostess who welcomed us with open arms sometimes in a long flowing robe! I can't count the number of times we stayed...we were even brave enough to bring our very young children to her beautiful home. Perhaps the memories that will last forever will be her red lipstick (which she touched up after each meal with a small beautiful mirror) or her red nail polish....but for our family it will be her love, her kindness, her patience and her listening...traits that made her so special. These last years were such a struggle...maybe not for her but for those of us who loved rest in peace ear Aunt.....your memory will always be blessing.

Dearest Cousins Wayne & Glenn,
First I want to express my heartfelt condolences to the Berger Boys. When Nancy & I were engaged in March 1966, we were invited to Glenn's Bar Mitzvah the following month, April. There I met both of your beloved parents. I idolized your father and loved and adored your mother. Both of them welcomed me with open arms and I felt the warmth, love and understanding of family ties which I had never experienced. All I can say is I am so proud to call them MY Aunt Tillie and Uncle Ira and I will always remember them. Love always, Cousin Steve

Glenn-Truly sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. My condolences to you and Wayne. Although I don't remember her from, let's say, Visitor's Day, I do remember attending your Bar Mitzvah and your Kirbey Scott deejayed Party where I would have seen her radiant with pride and happiness at a major Berger family milestone. My thoughts are with you.

Dear Wayne and Glen,
I was so sorry to hear about your mother’s passing. My memories go back 60 years beginning with our days at The Summit.
Your mom was beautiful, classy and kind. She always took the time today hello and ask about my family.
She had impeccable taste and always looked perfect.
The story I remember vividly was watching your mom dance around your dad who sat on a chair and clapped and sang with her. Your mom loved to dance.
She was a great mother, wife and friend.
You both were devoted to her. Who could ask for better sons?

I will miss my Great Aunt Tillie as she was a wonderful person always with a smile on her face. I will never forget my trips down to Florida and stopping by for visits at her Pompano Beach condo. Aunt Tillie was always up for a card game (Rummikub comes to mind) or a workout in those days. She was always so thoughtful and close with mother, Nancy. Although we will all miss her, we hope she is in a better place and reunited with Uncle Ira.


Wayne and Glenn Berger

Posted at 08:42am
Yesterday, my brother Wayne and I entered the room with no mother in it, a stripped down hospital bed, and an riderless wheelchair, to begin the removal of Tillie's belongings. Yes, I move fast. We sat down for a few minutes to look together at all of the tributes for our mother. We were stunned by the outpouring of love and admiration for her and our family. A few months ago, someone , in a nice way asked me about my proclivity for posting tributes on the Levinson site. I responded by saying that "if I could make someone feel a little bit better during one of of the darkest days of their lives, why wouldn't I?" This proves I was right, not that I ever doubted it. Today, Wayne and I will see our mother, and I will make certain that every gold button on her black St. John's suit is properly closed, and the red lipstick is there. Ira loved her in that outfit. This is just what gay sons do. Just stating a fact. I often remember something Maria Shriver once said about her own father's Alzheimers disease. She said" You have to be willing to let go of the life you had planned in order to make the life you are meant to live". Thank you so much to each and every one of you who reached out by any method for making our new lives just a little bit lighter on a very dark day. During these most unimaginable times of isolation, unrest, despair, and strife in our country, once again I am reassured that the better angels prevail. Thank You.

Dear Wayne and Glenn,
So sorry to hear of Tillie’s passing. She was a wonderful lady. It seems like the end of an era. Some of my earliest memories was being driven to Read’s, Price’s Dairy or the Ambassador Theatre in her “tillie car” when we were neighbors on Forest Hill Road. I didn’t know a “tillie car” was actually an Oldsmobile until I was at least eight years old. I hope to see you in happier times

One of the most difficult things about living out of town, is hearing about the loss of a friends family member. Although, we haven't seen one another in quite sometime, I wanted to also reach out to you to share my thoughts and sadness on the loss of your mother. After reading so many of the loving messages that were shared on this site, it's easy to see how very true it was that your mother was indeed, beautiful, charming, eloquent and as classy as it gets. I'm so sorry for your loss my friend.

Dear Wayne & Glen, I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. I loved coming to your home, your mom was always so loving & kind to all of us who grew up on Garrison Farms Road (which turned out to be the best street, ever!) ... Tillie was absolutely stunning, & with Ira .. just wowww! I laugh thinking about my childhood, with ALL my family on the street & the 3 Fisher sisters & all our crazy & fun family "stuff", and then, coming over your house ...... elegant, stunning & so quiet in comparison. (hahaa) But, Tillie loved having us over & always had a treat for the kids. May all your happy memories & stories help you through these difficult & sad times. Lots of love, Marcie

I have known you and your family for over 50 years . I once heard someone say that it’s not death that brings us the greatest loss in life, but all that dies inside of us . I hope that you will find ways to celebrate the memory of your devoted mother . I know she would want both of you to live every day to the fullest and continue the celebration of her contagious love for life. May time speed your healing. I love you both. Sometimes there are no words that can reveal the feelings of the heart but please accept my deepest thoughts of you during this time. You were great sons.

Wayne and Glenn: I have already expressed to you my thoughts about what a wonderful person Tillie was and you can see from all the memories posted here that she profoundly touched many lives. Tillie was a beautiful lady in every way ! And thank you for including my parents in the photo montage -- my sister Gail and I were very touched by that, and our families indeed go back a long way. But I did want to add this photo, I believe taken at the Concord, which speaks for itself about what a fabulous couple your parent were ! You two have been through an impossibly difficult journey and I hope you take some comfort in the fact that Tillie and Ira will soon be together again -- as they have always been meant to be !

Glenn and Wayne,
Tillie was always a gracious, gentle, and loving person. She and my mom were close friends for 40 years and even after my mother died, Ira and Tillie would still come pick up my dad to go out together.
I know you were both dedicated to her and the challenges of the last year were especially difficult.
We will all miss her beauty and generosity.

Hi Wayne and Glenn. I am so very sorry for your loss. I never had the privilege of meeting your parents but they were dear friends of my parents, Frances and Seymour Garfinkel from Va. They always spoke so highly of your family. My mother adored your Mom. As a matter of fact my brother named his dog, an adorable and sweet teddy bear, after your mom. Tillie is as precious to Ray and his wife Mary as your mom was to mine. Please know how much you are in my thoughts and prayers. Take care.

Tillie Berger was the most beautiful woman I have ever known, in every possible way. I am so fortunate that she was my Aunt. She has been a part of my life since I was a baby. In fact, if it wasn't for Aunt Tillie, my name would have been Madeline. She talked my mother out of giving me a tongue twister of a name. I can't use enough adjectives to describe my Aunt. Warm, kind, gracious, generous, and loving are just a few. She was extremely dedicated to her family. Aunt Tillie and Uncle Ira's home was frequently the family gathering place for celebrations as well as troubled times. Uncle Ira gave the advice and she was a most welcoming hostess, providing the family with plenty of love, comfort, and food. Aunt Tillie was a stunning woman and I will always remember her beautiful clothing and bright red lipstick and nail polish. My most precious memories include our summer dates, when she would take me to lunch and a movie. Aunt Tillie was a real crier. I remember looking at her and saying, "Why are you crying, Aunt Tilly?" The movie had been a comedy. It was during those summer afternoons that I really got to know her, and she, me. I was so very saddened when, as a result of Covid, I was no longer able to visit her. I can only imagine how difficult it was for Wayne and Glenn during this period of time. Aunt Tillie is now among loved ones in Berger heaven with Mollie and Maurice, Shirlee and Nat, and Laurette and Stuart. In saying goodby to you, Aunt Tillie, I have to thank you for being you. I love you so much and you will always be in my heart.

Glenn and Wayne, I’m so sorry that you’ve lost your lovely mom. She was SO lucky to have such incredibly devoted sons. I’m glad that I got to know her well when I worked at Tudor Heights. She was an avid participant in all activities. She always made me laugh, and I’m glad I was able to make her laugh! May she rest In Peace. Lynn Meier

Dear Cousins Wayne and Glenn, You know how much my family and I loved Aunt Tillie and how much she will be missed. Adam, Max, Elijah and I send our condolences, love and light to you both while you go through this transition of life. I wish I could be there, but know my heart and love is always with you. A few memories stand out for me. Glenn; the time your mom caught us dissecting the stuffed skunk in the bathroom on Anton Farms Rd. Straw all over... Aunt Tillie letting out a maddening scream at us 10 year olds. She never screamed, but that did it. LOL. Eating french fries at the Club while our mothers where in with their friends. Mollie and Maurice's for Holidays. Another memory was when I bumped into her in the mid 70s at a Commune just coming out of a "learn how to read Tarot" workshop. She and I laughed and she asked me to promise not to tell the family of her interests. Especially since I was supposed to be the family Hippie! LOL Much love to you my cousins. Know that now Tillie, Laurette, Shirley, Junie, and most of the others are sitting at the Mahjong table in Heaven enjoying all the candy and snacks they want. And Everybody wins! Big Hugs and lots of love.

Dear Glenn & Wayne,
We were so sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved mother, Tillie! I remember well from years ago your beautiful mother and handsome father, Ira. They were a stunning couple and very well liked in the Baltimore community. Hopefully your wonderful memories will sustain you at this very sad time! Rona & Ed Casel
