Martha Sue Herbert Obituary
July 15, 1927 - November 24, 2018 Born in San Bernardino and raised by her parents Pat and Jesse McKinney. Sue graduated from San Bernardino High School in 1945 and University California Berkeley in 1949 as a member of the Delta Delta Delta sorority, with a B.A. in English Literature. She travelled extensively through Europe, Africa, Mexico and the Middle East and taught in the Army Dependent School in Frankfurt, Germany. After a whirlwind courtship of seven years, Sue married Skip Herbert and had three children. Sue was an elementary school teacher for 26 years and was a beloved Creative Writing teacher at the Highland Senior Center. Sue and Skip were relentless supporters to find a cure for diabetes and rescued over forty dogs together. She was a lifelong community volunteer and served on the Legislative Committee of the Humane Society, member and officer of the California Retired Teacher Association, Co-Founder of the Inland Empire Chapter of Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, member of the Delta Kappa Gamma Society for Women in Education, Casa Ninos Auxilliary of Children's Home Society, and the San Bernardino Assistance League. Sue's wit, humor and kindness to all will be deeply missed. Sue passed away after a brief illness and is survived by a wide circle of cherished friends, and her children Nick Herbert (Patti), Katie Machoskie (Ed), Mark Herbert (Karlyn) and her eight grandchildren, Andrew, Jess, Sara, Tom, Jessica, Ryan, Molly and Jacob. Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to The Humane Society. A memorial service will be held at Bobbits Memorial Chapel 1299 E Highland Ave, San Bernardino, on January 5, 2019, at 10:00a.m.
