In Memory of

Lorraine C. Herrmann

August 10, 1921 - November 7, 2011
Lorraine C. Herrmann, the daughter of Edward and Hilda (Anderson) Harty, was born August 10, 1921 in St. Paul, MN. Her childhood years were spent in Highland Park, IL where she attended school and graduated from Lake Forrest High School. Lorraine was united in marriage to Paul Herrmann on July 27, 1945, in Geneva, IL. Following their marriage, Lorraine worked for the telephone company. The family moved to Sioux Falls, SD where she continued working for the telephone company before moving to Cherokee, IA in 1950. As her family grew, she worked from home and helped to raise their family. Lorraine enjoyed watching CNN, reading, and the companionship of her dog. Most of all, she enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. On November 7, 2011, Lorraine passed away at the Cherokee Villa Nursing Home at the age of 90. She was preceded in death by her husband, Paul Herrmann on April 12, 1992; parents, Edward and Hilda Harty; two brothers; and one sister. She is survived by her three children: Paulette Herrmann of Cherokee, IA, Michael (Patty) Herrmann of Norwalk, IA, and Kevin Herrmann of Cherokee, IA; one granddaughter, Nikki Herrmann of Norwalk, IA; two brothers, Bill Harty of Riverside, CA and John Harty of Highland Park, IL; as well as several nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

“I am so sorry for your loss. May 'the God of all comfort' (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) comfort and soothe your heart. His promises, found in the Holy Scriptures, can offer much hope. It assures us at John 5:28,29 that our loved ones will be remembered and brought back to life in the resurrection. Please allow God's Word to strengthen you and help you to endure this most difficult time.

“Kevin and Paulette, My deepest sympathies in the loss of your mother Lorraine, I enjoyed working with her to help her hear better, even thou the dog had different ideas! How lucky to have her so many years and enjoy her in her home for as long as you did and you were always so kind and caring with her, I was impressed by that. It is so hard to lose one's mother as if part of you dies with them. God Bless You and you are both in my prayers.”
