Herta was an ambitious and avid traveler.  At age 65 she began her travel adventures, oftentimes traveling with her sister Ilse, or her children and grand-children.  Visiting more than half of the countries in the world, she was a curious and adventurous wanderer, some years being away for eight weeks or more.  She continued her travels until she was 95 when she made her last trip abroad with daughter Marianne to Mexico.  Grandma had an infectious, child-like charm that stayed with her until her last days.  In accordance with Herta’s wishes, there will be a private, immediate family only, graveside ceremony with a celebration of life to follow at a later date.  Our family wishes to offer a sincere thank you for all your love, prayers and friendship.  Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane.  James Murdock, Funeral Director 306-693-4550
