Obituary for Linnea Dagmar Persson Aberg

Linnea Aberg, 95, passed away on January 4, 2018 at Middlesex Hospital in Middletown, CT. She was a current resident of Covenant Village in Cromwell, CT.

Linnea was born on December 19, 1922 near Goteborg, Sweden, in the parish of Finnerodja, an area renowned for their cultivation of world class strawberries. She was the daughter of Anna (Eriksson) and Anders Persson.

After completing her education, including business school, she took on a bookkeeping job in Stockholm before immigrating to the United States in 1947. It was there that she met her future husband, Helmer Aberg, whom she married in 1948.

Linnea and her husband started a very successful landscaping business in Rye, New York, (Aberg’s Nursery), where Linnea served as both bookkeeper and salesperson, aided through various landscaping classes she attended at the Botanical Gardens in New York City. Linnea and her husband continued to run their thriving nursery business for more than 40 years.

Linnea and her husband were also very active members of the VASA Order of New York, a Swedish-American fraternal organization, where they enjoyed an active social life with the greater Swedish community. They were also active members of the Rye Presbyterian Church for many years. She and her husband eventually retired and moved to a retirement community in Cromwell, CT in 2001.

Linnea is pre-deceased by her husband, Helmer, as well as eight brothers and sisters. She is survived by two sons: Lennart Aberg of Bristol, Rhode Island and Roland Aberg of Long Lake, Minnesota; four grandchildren: Christy, Erika, Lorentz, and Yvonne; two great grandchildren: Judah and Zoe; as well as numerous nephews and nieces, most of who live in Sweden.

A celebration of her life will be conducted privately by members of her immediate family.To share memories or send condolences to the family, please visit
