Berithe Andersdatter was born and raised in Gryllefjord on the island Senja in 1890. As a young woman she moved to Lofoten to be a cook for the men that worked as fishermen during the winter-season. There were thousands of men there in the winter, and a lot of woman had their work there as long as log as it was "skrei-fiske". She met her husband in Svolvær i Lofoten.
