Hermoine Delores “Hermy” Schipper, 88, of Milaca, formerly of Cambridge, passed away on Tuesday, July 23, 2019, at Abbott-Northwestern Hospital due to heart failure.
Hermoine was born on Dec. 6, 1930, to Marius and Helen Honerud in Fargo, N.D. Hermy grew up on her parent’s farm in the Red River Valley in Perley, Minn. She graduated from high school at Oak Grove Lutheran School. Hermy moved to Cambridge, Minn., and worked at Stratte Drug as a bookkeeper.
Hermy’s favorite hobbies were planting beautiful, colored flowers, feeding the birds, reading “almost” one book per day, going to Texas for three months during the Minnesota winters, and taking care of their cat, Calli. Hermy’s favorite phrase line was, “That’s how it goes, you know.”
Hermy’s pride and joy was spending time with her husband, four children, six grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren.
Hermy was preceded in death by her parents and sister, Adeline Sanford.
