Mary Patricia "Pat" Herman of Indianapolis, passed away on Friday, November 16, 2012 at Community North Hospital. She was 85.
She was born on May 3, 1927 in Marion, Indiana, the oldest of three children born to the late Harry and Helen (Coats) Shildmyer.
Pat attended St. Paul's High School in Marion. She started her working career in the mid-1940's working as a Secretary at Carmichael Abstract Company. She then worked as a Record Keeper at the Grant County Recorder's Office; a Secretary at Campbell, Gemmill, Brown and Ewer, and finished her career as a Secretary at Osborn Paper. She then chose to be a Stay at Home mom where she raised her five children.
After moving to Indianapolis, she became involved in the St. Lawrence Catholic Church community as a member of the church choir, a lectern reader, prepared food for church events, supported her children in various sports, and was a member of the bowling league.
Pat loved spending time with her family – especially her grandchildren. She had many fond memories of vacationing and canoeing with friends, hosting parties, and going to lunch with girlfriends.
She is survived by her loving husband of 58 years, Donald Herman, and their five children: Steve (Pam) Herman, Jim (Kellie) Herman, Dan Herman, Tom (Sandy) Herman, Kathi (Rick) Davis; 13 grandchildren (Chrissy, Heather, Madison, Eric, Justin, Zachary, Taylor, Andrew, Nikki, Rick Jr., Sara, Mahalia, and Cienna); her brother Tom Shildmyer, and 11 nephews and nieces.
