The oldest of 3 children, she was born on January 6th, 1910, in Solms, Germany. At age 16 she moved to Buffalo, NY where her love of children paved the way for her to be a nanny.

After losing her first husband, and with her deep love of kids, she had said she would only remarry a man who had children. Destiny came when she met her 2nd husband, George Hermann Sr. who had a son, Georgie. She fell in love and her life was made. Over-time, She became a grandma of 3, a great grandma of 4, and a great-great grandma of 5. After losing her husband, she lived in San Pedro, Ca where she eventually married Bud Stine and they enjoyed 10 years together. Wanting to be closer to her family, she moved to Arizona.. She was an amazing mother-in-law, a well-loved grandma, and a joy to all who knew her.
