On Oct. 20, Elliott Mordecai Berg, M.D., of Lutherville peacefully at home in his sleep at 85. He endured a long illness and was able to be at home for the past five years, due to the dedicated, loving care of his wife and many caregivers and therapists. He was a kind, gentle, loving and giving man with a wonderful sense of humor. He modeled gratitude every day — he always said that he was the luckiest man alive. He is survived by wife Sharon Berg (née Gresser); daughters Jessica Berg (Al Aguinaga) and Alisa (Jason) Goldsmith; siblings Denese (Dr. Norman) Mann; sister-in-law Elayne Berg; brother-in-law and sister-in-law Dr. Lee and Judy Gresser; grandchildren Isabella Goldsmith, Asher Aguinaga, Emma Goldsmith and Gavin Goldsmith; and many nieces, nephews, friends and colleagues. He was predeceased by parents Samuel and F. Jeannette Berg and brother Gerald Berg.
