Rodgers, Berle D.

Berle D. Rodgers, age 62, of Linden, WI died on Friday evening March 29, 2019, at the Upland Hills Health in Dodgeville. He was born on July 4, 1956 in Childress, TX.
Berle moved to Montana and worked in the sugar beet fields until 2001. Through a family friend, Berle met Diane Colson and he relocated to Montfort. He was unfortunately diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2002. Berle was a polite, laid back man, who enjoyed people and was always willing to help others. He loved going camping at Whitetail Bluff in Potosi with Diane, and was sure to handle all the grilling responsibilities. He also liked listening to country music and was a huge Shania Twain fan, even winning a contest and was able to get a limo ride to and from one of her concert. Through these past years, Berle had a lot of medical issues and truly appreciated the dedication from his special companion Diane.
Berle is survived by Diane Colson of Linden, two brothers, along with many special family members and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother and a sister.
At the request of Berle, there will be no formal funeral services at this time. Expressions of sympathy may be sent to Diane Colson, 603 Galena St. P.O. Box 342, Linden, WI 53553. The Soman-Larson Funeral Home of Montfort is assisting the family and online condolences may be made at
