When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life in such a way that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice. – Cherokee
Nora A Herrling (née Remmel) lived her life in just such a way. Nora's inherent love for people and curiosity about them is seen through the vast array of people whose lives were touched by her. Her legacy is one of compassion, love, joy and concern for others above herself. We are saddened by her passing-our grief is deep yet our hope is strong.
She was a tireless advocate for people who needed a helping hand and because of her, many lives were impacted in positive ways. Nora loved her children and extended family, and her concern to the end was for those left behind.
Nora was preceded in death by her husband Dennis, her father Milton, sister Mary, and mother Grace.
The funeral liturgy for Nora will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at ST. BERNARD CATHOLIC CHURCH, 1617 W. Pine Street in Appleton, with Fr. Dennis Ryan officiating. Interment will follow in Riverside Cemetery at a later date. Family and friends are invited to gather at the church on Saturday morning from 9:00 AM until the hour of the celebration mass.
The family would like to thank the staff at Ascension St Elizabeth hospital for their excellent care, the staff of Ascension Hospice, HomeInstead, and AtHome Senior Care for their care of Nora at home.
Special thanks to gifted and loving friends. Kris for her help in so many areas, Dr. Sodhi and his staff as well as Dr. Cherian for their compassion and assistance in providing comfort, expertise and honesty during her illness.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that memorials be sent to either The Community Clothes Closet or St. Vincent DePaul in Appleton in Nora's name.
