In 1944, after her marriage to Albert Berney, she came to Baltimore, where a great-uncle was a founder of the department store that came to be known by her family name.
Mrs. Berney and her husband moved to Colorado in 1975 after living for some years in Ohio.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by two sons, Louis Berney of Budapest, Hungary, and David Berney of Baltimore; two daughters, Kim Berney and Kay Berney, both of Baltimore; a brother, Peter Hochschild of St. Louis; and six grandchildren.
No services were planned at her request, but the family suggested memorial contributions to the Friends of the Pikes Peak Library System in Colorado Springs.
