Dorothy Lou Herman, 86, of Greeley passed away at New Mercer Commons in Fort Collins, CO on the afternoon of October 19, 2020.

Where she later gave birth to her two daughters, Debra E Newport, in 1960, and Betty Ann (Missy) Herman, in 1962. A few years later they settled in Greeley, CO where she raised her family.

She had many hobbies from owning and running a ceramics shop with her daughters, to making wood cut out Christmas yard decorations. She also enjoyed sewing, quilt making, and crocheting.
She was a devoted mother and grandmother and was very excited to become a great grandmother.

I am a housekeeper and laundry attendant at New Mercer Commons. Dorothy was very special to me and lots of other girls here. Dorothy would get around in her wheelchair by going backwards. Gilbert, one of the housekeepers, called her Mrs. Backwards. She liked that name. I'm sad to hear of her passing. I'm blessed to have gotten to know her. God bless your family. I thank God for the promise of heaven, one day we will all see each other again.
