Your mom was such a beauty inside and out. I visited her several times over a 30 year period in addition to attending the same church. Deepest sympathies to you all.

"Mrs Herman" was one of the most popular teachers at Northwest Classen HS in OKC. Her contagious enthusiasm and sense of humor made ECONOMICS classes interesting and fun. I was lucky to miraculously squeak into her class as a Junior; unheard of because Seniors had enrollment priority. "Mrs Herman" truly cared about all of her students and was always available for assistance, advice and encouragement. Many years later I reconnected with her after she and Jerry moved to Colorado Springs. During this time Earlene did a COLOR ME BEAUTIFUL presentation for my daughter's National Charity League group. These seventeen-year-olds thought Earlene was one of the "coolest" ladies ever! In addition to discovering their best colors, she inspired these young women to strive for their best selves. Earlene Herman was one of the best. She will be missed and NEVER forgotten.

I met Earlene as a client of her Color Me Beautiful business, and have very happy memories of our times together. Among her many talents, she had a gift for making people feel welcome and comfortable. Her great sense of humor and genuine interest in helping people look and feel their best are things I will always remember about her. Jerry was a true gentleman and loved talking with us whenever we stopped by for products . My sympathy and prayers to your family.
