The family of Margaret Ann Hermann has received the following condolences.
God bless you Margaret. Rest in peace with our Lord, Jesus. Margaret was always smiling, laughing, full of life. Traveling, volunteering, walking, working she was full of life. A great worker, very dedicated to Saint Marys Hospital. We will miss you.
The loss of a loved one is a very sad and heavy load to bare. May you find comfort at John 5:28,29 "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his (Jesus) voice and come out." Please accept my deepest sympathy, and for more comforting information you may refer to jw.org.
I feel blessed to have known Margaret. I worked with her in Personnel at Saint Marys Hospital and then interactions throughout while she was at working on other projects. I will never forget those days. Whenever we met in the hallways, she would ask how I was doing and we would take a couple minutes to talk. I considered her friendship a great blessing in my life.
Margaret and I worked together at Saint Marys Hospital and Mayo Medical Center for over 30 years; she was a dear friend of mine and my family for that period and beyond. Margaret's great sense of humor, zest for life, kindness, and dedication to her work was remarkable. She exemplified the principles of the Catholic healthcare institution that was Saint Marys Hospital/Mayo. It was a gift from God that, several weeks ago, I met her by chance in a Rochester business. She was a beautiful person and I will miss her. Rest in peace, dear Margaret.
Hello. My condolences to Margaret's family. Margaret was my Godmother, though I am not quite sure how my parents came to know her. Nevertheless she was always a consistent visitor to our homes in Rochester while I was growing up. An interesting memory for me is that at some point in the 1970's I collected beer cans. Margaret knowing this and being a great traveler brought back a can from Russia for me, which I still have. I last saw her at my mom's funeral in December of 2012. RIP Margaret.
Margaret was a good friend of my parent's, John and Margaret Corrigan, and the Godparent to my brother. I always remember her as being so elegant and charming when she would visit the house. She always seemed to be smiling. What a thoughtful gift of herself she is providing to Mayo. RIP, Margaret.
