She was a long time member of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church and an avid St. Louis Cardinals and Iowa Hawkeye fan.
Surviving are her children, Kevin (Jane) Herzog of Peosta and Scott (Michelle) Herzog of Cedar Rapids; 11 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; a daughter-in-law, Nedra Herzog; and a son-in-law, Bob Prine.
