Obituary of John Norman Herber

Passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 1, 2023, at Freeport Hospital, in his 94th year.


Predeceased by his beloved sister, Emma Herber (2012), and by his beloved parents, John and Gertrude (nee Sheerer) Herber.


John spent his life devoted to working on the family farm, where he lived his whole life until taking up residency at Conestoga Retirement Home in 2018. John was a good neighbour, and he was a lifelong supporter of the Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in St. Agatha.


A private service will be held at a later date when John is laid to rest with his family in the cemetery near his lifelong home.


Special thanks to all of the staff at Conestoga Lodge who provided diligent care and a loving camaraderie that delighted John during his stay there.
