Mary Katherine Herzog


Herzog, Mary K.

Saginaw, Michigan

Loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt passed away on Monday evening, July 25, 2022. She was 81 years old. Mary Katherine was born June 28, 1941 in Saginaw, Michigan to the late Roy and Katherine (McInerney) Green. She married William Herzog on April 21, 1984 in Saginaw, Michigan. Mary attended St. Mary’s High School, graduating in 1959. She was employed at the Dow Event Center in concessions for almost 50 years. She was a faithful and active member of St. Mary’s Cathedral and later St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church for many years.

Her laugh and fun ways made her a joy to everyone. Mary loved cooking and gardening.  She enjoyed being on her Kindle. Mary also enjoyed watching her TV shows and old movies. But, what Mary really loved most was spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren.

Surviving are her husband, William Herzog; children, Jennifer Skelcy, Michael (Liz) Peters, Kaitlin (Aaron) Herzog-Rift; grandchildren, Justin Peters and Nicholas Peters; sister, Judi Neering; brothers and sisters in-law, Sue Green, Barbara Green and Fred Neering; nieces and nephews, Michele Green, Ashley dos Santos, Kelly Royer, Katie Green, David Green, Bob Green, Kevin Green and many great nieces and nephews.
