Obituary for Mary Ellen Herzog

Mary Ellen Herzog of West Bloomfield was born August 11, 1947 in Detroit, Michigan to John and Helen (nee: McPhail) Casey. She died April 13, 2020 at the age of 72 after a brief battle with kidney cancer.

Mrs. Herzog is the beloved wife of 45 years to Thomas A. Herzog. Loving mother of Christopher (Suzanne) Herzog and Mark (Kathryn) Herzog. Grandmother of Mark, Elizabeth, Rebecca, Thomas, Maura and Emma. Dear sister of John (Margaret) Casey. Preceded in death by her siblings David Casey and Loraine (Marvin) Dery. She is also survived by numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends.

Born in Detroit, Mary Ellen spoke fondly of her time growing up surrounded by her family both in her neighborhood in the city and many wonderful experiences with the extended family at the family farm.  She remembered fondly her years of education and experiences during her formative years at St. Rita’s Elementary and High School.  Mary Ellen was a lifelong and avid singer and music lover and shared that love of music with her family and all those who were around her.  She was incredibly proud of her contributions to a career in healthcare including some pioneering work in the field of Nuclear Medicine.  Having had the opportunity to spend her entire career working at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, she developed lifelong experiences and friendships that she treasured.   She was a devoted Catholic, and spent much of her life sharing her faith with family and friends.  Her greatest joys were being surrounded by family and friends and always appreciating the good times had and ensuring that all felt loved and cherished.  To know Mary Ellen was to know love and compassion, she was someone with an unlimited capacity for kindness and she will be sorely missed and fondly remembered by all who knew her.

Private committal services have taken place at St. Hedwig Cemetery in Dearborn Heights. A funeral mass will be held at a later date due to the current restrictions of public gatherings in place due to the COVID -19 Virus.
