Virginia Herman May 31, 1935 - Apr. 13, 2014 Resident of Oakland Virginia Ann Herman passed away on Sun., April 13, 2014. "Ginny," as she was known, was born in Bancroft, IA, on May 31, 1935, to the late Francis and Flora Bradley. She arrived in Oakland, CA in 1962 where she was the beloved wife of Dr. Irvin Herman for nearly 52 years and with him, raised three sons: David (Lora), Thomas (Lisa) and Charles (John). She is survived by four grandchildren: William, Stephen, Jake and Ryan. She has three siblings - Jim, Pat and the late Jane Kammer - as well as many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. Ginny had an indomitable spirit, a love of hiking, music (especially blues and bluegrass) and was inspired in recent years to take up the mandolin. Most of all, she loved to learn. She always carried a book with her wherever she went and filled every room of her home with shelves of books. After graduating from St. John's High School, in Bancroft, 1952, she earned a degree from the University of Iowa in 1956. Later, she became a physical therapist working in Cincinnati, OH, where she met her husband. After several years as a homemaker, she began studying American history at U.C. Berkeley and earned a B.A. with honors in 1977, an M.A. in 1981 and completed the coursework for a Ph.D. In later years, she continued to study American history and was particularly passionate about the Southwestern U.S. and the Civil War. With her husband, she visited nearly every major battlefield of that war. By this time, she had also become an amateur photographer and filled her home with images of her trips, from Gettysburg to the Grand Canyon. Then there were the dogs. While her love affair with dogs lasted for more then 40 years, none was more cherished than Sam. She could often be seen walking her yellow Labrador. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to be made in memory of Ginny Herman to the Berkeley Animal Care Shelter, 1 Bolivar Dr., Berkeley, CA, 94710. Read Obituary
