Please except my concolences on the loss of Hap. My mom, Dolores Bergman, and Hap talk on the phone for several years. I had the pleasure of talking with Hap on several occasions when I would have to dial the phone for mom. She was a wonderful person and I enjoyed talking with her. My mom died in July of 2011. I will include Hap in my prayers.
Daughter of the late Dolores Bergman
Tribute to “Hap”. We all know the wonderful sports accomplishments she has achieved. 1939 OLA High School athlete of the Year, earned seven letters in seven different sports at U.C. besides being in their Hall of Fame Center next to the Big “O”. Hap was inducted in many Hall of Fames and honored as the first woman in Buddy LaRosa’s Hall of Fame. She played for the first organized professional women’s baseball team in 1944 for the Kenosha Comets. The film was “A League of Their Own” was later produced depicting these first professional athletes. Hap was most proud of being the first woman to receive her M.B.A. from Xavier University. My sister was a devout catholic who lived out her faith by attending daily mass at Our Lady of Visitation, prayed 2-3 rosaries a day and always lit a candle at church for each of her siblings. She sent mass cards each christmas, easter and birthdays. She devoted her later life to her mother stricken with a stroke. She made it a point to personally feed her three meals a day for close to three years. She had a big sister love for her little sister Catherine, who died at the age of 3. Prior to Hap’s death May 11, while Hap was in a coma she was calling out to Catherine. Enjoy Heaven. Your Brother Stan
