Chip was born on October 2, 1961 to Clarence and Dorothy Bertsch in Harvey, ND, and graduated from Harvey High School in 1979. Chip was once married to Dave O’Neill. Chip worked at Quadion/Minnesota Rubber for 23 years, holding various positions, and worked most recently as an office manager/project manager for Cypress Multigraphics. For those who knew Chip, she was outgoing, full of laughs, kind-hearted, always showing her beautiful smile, and had an incredible work ethic. She was an avid bowler for many years and enjoyed playing pinochle at family gatherings. Chip loved to travel, her favorite destination being the beach resorts of Mexico. She also loved animals, especially the three dogs she and Dave had over the years – Boozer, Salt and Sandy. Family was very important to Chip, and she doted on her nephews, nieces and great-nieces.
