RACINE – Ruth Anne Herman, 77, passed away at St. Luke’s Hospital in Milwaukee after complications from heart surgery on Wednesday, June 6, 2018. She was born in Milwaukee on June 20, 1940, the daughter of the late Francis and Cleo (nee: Truckey) Murphy. Ruth was a kind and loving woman that spent her life caring for others; whether it was tending to her six children or anyone in need. She relished the time spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and loved them more than anything. Ruth enjoyed her quiet time, reading and watching movies, and never missed a rummage sale.
She is survived by her daughter, Tammie (Dave) Nelson of Clearwater, FL; her sons, Benjamin Herman, Robby Herman and Tod (Jenny) Herman all of Racine; her grandchildren, Joe, Tim and Don Jr. Halbur, Amanda Roushia Barnes, Summer and Cheyenne Roushia, Michael Halbur, Trevor and Melinda Nelson, Shashauna and Cody Herman, Paige and Kelvin Keigher, Daniel Herman, Matthew and Brenna Herman; as well as 14 great-grandchildren; her former husband, James Herman; her brothers, Warren (Arlene) Murphy, Danny (Judy) Murphy, Lee (Kay) Murphy; her sister Angie Guns, as well as many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. She was also preceded in death by her daughters, Debbie Halbur and Dody Roushia; her brothers, Larry Murphy and Roy Murphy and sister, Joan Murphy.
Family and friends are invited to meet in the Draeger-Langendorf Funeral Home on Tuesday, June 12, 2018 for a visitation and time to meet with her family from 4:30 – 6:00 p.m. A service celebrating and remembering her life will follow at 6:00 p.m. Memorials have been suggested to HALO of Racine.
“May joy and peace surround you, Contentment latch your door, And happiness be with you now, And bless you evermore.”
