Obituary: Marilyn Jane Herbert



 
Marilyn "Jane" Herbert, 83, passed away peacefully in her sleep July 12, 2016.
Jane was born Nov 23, 1932 in Lancaster, NY.
Jane was the daughter of the Late David and Beatrice Menzies. She was a 1950 graduate of Lancaster High.
Jane loved to quilt, she taught quilting classes, took family fishing trips to Canada and was an avid fan of IU Basketball and Colts Football. She could often be heard hollering at the TV about bad calls or commentators she thought were biased against her team. It was her family, her children and 12 Grand Children, who lovingly referred to her as their "G", and her 12 Great Grand Children that she made sure she had quarters for each of their Birthdays, that she loved the most.
It was later in her life, after the retirement of her husband Chuck Herbert, that she received her license as a lay minister. This was one of the most meaningful times of her life and when her faith and her love for her Church became the strongest. She truly loved her time filling the pulpit of area churches.
"G" was preceded in Death by her parents David and Beatrice Menzies, her husband of 53 years Chuck Herbert, and daughter Shelley J. Mehling.
She is survived by her Daughter Suzie J. Hobbs (Mike) Daughter Patti Rathke (Rod) and Son Chuck Herbert Jr (Nancy). She is also survived by her Brother Harvey Menzies (Ann) of Lancaster, New York.
Funeral Services will be 11:00AM, Friday, July 15, 2016, at St. Peter's United Church of Christ, 7014 Darmstadt Rd. Friends may visit 3:00 to 8:00PM, Thursday, July 14,2016 at Alexander North Chapel, 4200 Stringtown Rd.
In Lieu of Flowers, Donations may be made to the St. Peter's UCC Highland Youth Group, 7014 Darmstadt Rd, Evansville, IN 47710. Condolences may be made online at www.AlexanderNorthChapel.com.
