Obituary

Elizabeth Jane Herman passed away February 15th, 2019 at her home in Mosier surrounded by family. Jane was born July 21, 1941 and was 77 years of age at the time of her death.

Jane was born in Hood River, Oregon to Arnold Wilburn and Lillian Mae (Lillard) Wheeler. She grew up in Hood River but moved when her father served in WW II to live with family on a ranch at Baker City, Oregon and moved back after the war. She graduated from Hood River High School in 1959.

On June 27th, 1959 she married Donald L. Wonsyld, they moved to Germany for a couple of years while Don was serving in the US Army. They moved back to Hood River after his service. Jane later married LeeRoy Herman on May 16th, 1972 in Hood River, Oregon and they moved to Mosier in 1974 where they have resided since.

Jane enjoyed knitting, paying cards, her dinner groups, camping and being with family and friends. In her younger years she worked as a dental assistant for Dr. L.R. Alexander and Dr. W.W. Crompton then evolved to a bank teller then office administration for Buntings Automotive.

While in Mosier she was a volunteer with the fire department as a first responder and then later an EMT. In 1990 she began her career with the City of The Dalles Fire Department which evolved to Wasco Rural Fire Protection then Mid-Columbia Fire & Rescue where she retired in October of 2012. Jane worked in many capacities within fire & rescue from first responder, EMT and office administration. Her retirement didn’t stop her involvement as she continued her volunteerism and in August of 2018 was the President of Volunteer Benevolence Fund.

Jane is survived, deeply missed and loved by her husband, LeeRoy Herman; daughter, Shelley M. Prentice (and husband, Richard); step-sons, Rick Herman and Tim Herman (and wife, Renee); grandchildren, Emelia, Mariah, Clinton (& Dariela), Rachel (& Ryan), Tim, Nicole (& Gideon), Jessica, Sam (& Ben), and Ashely (& Matthew); ten great-grandchildren; many nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews and other distant family as well as a host of friends she has collected over the years. She was preceded in death by her parents; son, Michael Scott Wonsyld; and step-son, Troy Herman.

A celebration of Jane’s life is planned for 11:00 A.M., Saturday, March 2nd, 2019 at Anderson’s Tribute Center (1401 Belmont Avenue, Hood River). Entombment will follow at Idlewilde Mausoleum and then a potluck reception at the Mosier Grange (1000 4th Ave., Mosier).

Jane has done so much for Gorge communities, in Wasco County, The Dalles and our hometown, Mosier. I can't think of anyone more buttoned up or willing to help. From her beautiful yard to her loving family, Jane had a full life. I, and many of our community, will miss her smiling face so much. LeeRoy Herman has done so much for the fire service in Mosier also - I and we want to thank him and the family for all they have done and send our very sincere condolences.

Jane was not only a very good friend but a very beautiful lady-inside and out. I met Jane through OFSOA (Oregon Fire Service Office Administrators Assoc.) and so admired her loving spirit. She was so kind to everyone and always willing to help in any way. She always had a kind word to say and many times even though she didn’t realize it those words came at just the right time. I, along with many others, will miss her sweet smile and soft voice of encouragement. Susan Shepard
