Carla Henderson Berglund

12/22/1966 - 07/24/2023

It is with great sadness the family of Carla Cay Henderson Berglund share her passing early this week, July 24, 2023. It appears she simply went to sleep and woke up in a better place. Left to mourn are her son Trey Berglund (fiancé Delaney Johns), daughter Micayla, brothers Bill (Pam) and Doug (Sally) and her sister Ann. Along with nieces and nephews Jeri Massie, Gary Henderson, Shea Baird, Sage Hofer, and Cody Henderson. Great nieces and nephews Anthony Massie, Owen, and Libby Baird, and Ralstyn and baby Hofer.

Carla was born to Bill and Barbara Henderson December 22, 1966 in Scottsbluff, NE. Shortly after that she announced she wanted to be a teacher. Carla loved growing up on the family ranch in Sioux County. She attended elementary school in rural Box Butte County and high school in Alliance, NE. She graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1989 and began her teaching career. She taught one year in Ft. Worth, TX before moving to Arizona. She began teaching in Mesa in 1991. She was to begin her 32nd year this week.

She collected many youth and professional awards, but her family has learned the greatest of those is a collection of friends. Without hesitation they have taken the challenge of comforting a family and doing the heavy lifting. Heavy on the family’s hearts are her 100s of students and their families—their challenge is to continue to make her proud!

Trey and Micayla are grateful for this outpouring and celebrations will be held later in Arizona and Nebraska. As time heals, her ashes will be spread at the family ranch in Sioux County Nebraska.

Suggested memorials include the Box Butte County 4-H, 415 Black Hills, Alliance NE 69301 or RMHS Theatre, 7301 E Brown Rd, Mesa AZ 85207, please add Account: 275-959 to memo.
