Mary Herr, 90

June 08, 2024

Mary Herr, 90, formerly of Millersville, went home to be with the Lord on June 8, 2024, at Quarryville Presbyterian Home in Quarryville, PA.
Born on May 27, 1934, she was the daughter of the late Richard and Almaretta Roland. She was married to Bill Herr from October 18, 1953, until he passed away on August 23, 2010.

Mary was working at Armstrong World Industries, Inc., at Lancaster delivering mail to the different departments where she met Bill. They got married and she lived with Bill and his dad, Roy, on a farm near Millersville. In November 1956 they had a son, Billy.

Mary worked numerous part-time jobs, including Comet Drive In, Herr’s Fruit Farm, Country Cousins, and others.

Bill and Mary moved to a new home on the farm property. Billy and his wife Linda moved into the old farmhouse in 1978.

Mary loved the color red, playing games, 500 Rum and Dominoes, watching game shows, and the Phillies. She loved cats, quilts and getting together with family and friends.

In her later years she enjoyed eating at Conestoga Wagon Restaurant on Saturdays with her niece, Carolynn and others, then going to Main Street Closet Thrift Store. Mary attended Smithville Church of God. On Sundays Mary enjoyed a meal and visiting with nephew Rick Wallace, wife Deb, and daughter Amy.
Mary is survived by her son Billy, husband of Linda, Grandchildren Jason Herr of Millersville and Lisa Cahill, wife of Ryan, and Great-Grand Child Declan Cahill of Lancaster. Also, various nieces and nephews and their families.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Quarryville Presbyterian Home and Hospice & Community Care for taking such good care of Mary. Also, much appreciation to the many friends and relatives who spent time with Mary during her stay at Quarryville.

The Memorial Service will be held at Smithville Church of God, 595 Pennsy Road, New Providence with Pastor Gerald Frey officiating on Saturday June 22nd, at 2:00 pm. A time of greeting will begin one hour prior to service at 1pm. There will be refreshments after.
