Born - August 2, 1922, Hertha passed away May 14, 2018 after a battle with cancer. She immigrated to the United States from Cuxhaven, Germany with her husband, Paul, and 10-month-old son, Peter after World War II. Her daughter, Karin, was born in the United States shortly thereafter. She and her family ran a Dry-Cleaning business until her retirement.

She relocated to Charlotte after retirement to be closer to her grandchildren as family was the most important thing to her. Baby sitting her grandchildren was her new job and one she cherished more than anything else. If one of them became the least bit under the weather, there would be a fresh pot of chicken soup for them that afternoon. We believe the grandchildren would fake illness just to get her soup.

She was a faithful Catholic and loyal member of St. Matthew Catholic Church in Ballantyne until health issues kept her from attendance.

Hertha was predeceased by her husband, Paul, and son, Peter. She is survived by her daughter - Karin Dickson, son-in-law - Jim Dickson, grandchildren - Justin Gamroth, Chris Dickson, Jamie Whatton and great grandchildren - Jade, Jackson and Bella Gamroth, Tanner Whatton.

Mass of Christian Burial will be Thursday, May 17th at St. Matthew Catholic Church at 11:00AM. Inurnment will follow the service in the Church Columbarium.

In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to St. Matthew Catholic Church, 8015 Ballantyne Commons Parkway, Charlotte, NC 28277.
