Her work in the profession continued strong until 1985 when she lost her best friend and husband, Bill, and in 1988 she decided to retire from the esthetics profession. But that did not last long—her life was esthetics, and within a few months, she and two other professionals opened a small studio not far from her former location. Berg continued her work in esthetics until 2007, when for health reasons, she had to retire at the age of 83. Today, her daughter, Judy Garcia, continues to honor her mother's legacy through her skin care studio Yvonne Elizabeth Skin Care, Y.E.C. Inc. and Aesthetics Enrichment.
The esthetic profession was forever changed by this pioneering woman, and her influence on the skin care industry in Minnesota and the United States lives on through those she touched in the profession she so dearly loved.
