Elizabeth Jo (McKimmy) Herbert

Died Feb. 6, 2019


My beloved wife, the mother of our sons, a faithful sister and loving niece, cousin and friend, Elizabeth Jo Herbert, 56, stepped into our Lord’s arms Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2019.

She was born in Saginaw on April 27, 1962, the daughter of Doyle and Marilynn (Higgins) McKimmy, both of whom preceded her in death. She was raised in Bridgeport and enjoyed retirement on Fawn Lake in West Branch. Liz had been praying for 4 1/2 years for a complete healing after a cancer diagnosis. Her prayers have now been answered.

Liz loved the sunshine and water, especially when visiting or living in Florida. She also enjoyed watching and learning to identify all species of birds. But it was her faith and love of reading that excited a passion within her to seek more of God, studying His word so that He could be reflected in her life and walk and always receive all glory.

Her memory will be cherished by her husband of 32 years, Mike Herbert; their three sons, Colin, Jacob and Ben; as well as two sisters and their spouses, Becca and Greg Gifford and Rachel and Brady Fawcett. She will be greatly missed by all including countless relatives and friends.

“... although I am absent from this body, I am present with the Lord ...” — II Corinthians 5:8b.

Arrangements were handled by Steuernol & McLaren Funeral Home in West Branch,
