Selina Suzanna Kolberg passed away peacefully at 1:00 on May 5, 2022. She went to be with the lord at the age of 89 years. Selina was born in Hubbell, Michigan. She was predeceased by her father Walter Joseph St. Peter and her mother Mary Josephine Lenz. Selina was survived by her loving husband of 68 years Kenneth Gordon Kolberg. She is lovingly remembered by her sons Kenneth John Kolberg (Mary “Genia” Kolberg) of Santa Barbara, CA, Kevin Robert Kolberg (Elizabeth Kolberg) of Ventura, CA, Donald Gordon Kolberg of Lompoc, CA, John Joseph Kolberg of Goleta, CA, and Mary Kay Fallon (John Fallon) of Redondo Beach, CA; her grandchildren Katelin Kolberg of Ventura, Ca, and Jake Fallon of Redondo Beach, CA.
Selina grew up in Kingsford, Michigan. She met Kenneth on Halloween night 1953 in Florence Wisconsin. They married June 19, 1954. After their first son Ken was born they moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin when Kenneth took a job with General Motors. For the next few years they moved from Milwaukee to Baltimore, MD, to Coco Beach, FL, to Little Rock, Ark. In 1964 they returned to Wisconsin. The family enjoyed life on a small farm where Selina learned to can fruits and vegetables. Selina loved to bake cookies, and pies (French apple was the family favorite). During the summer of 1966, Kenneth and Selina purchased a vacation property near Florence Wisconsin. This property provides the family with wonderful memories of gatherings with friends and relatives. Selina enjoyed spending her summers after retirement in Florence.
In the fall of 1972 the family moved to Goleta, California. Selina loved the warm weather. She was very proud of her children as they all completed their education in Goleta. In 1980 she went to work for the Devereaux Foundation and became a “house mom” as a caregiver for those with learning disabilities.
During her retirement years, Selina’s greatest joy was to spend time with her grandchildren, Katelin and Jake. She often traveled with them and visited frequently. Selina made Birthdays and Holidays extra special for them. Katelin and Jake dearly miss their Grandma.
