Elaine Lois Herrmann passed away peacefully on July 13, 2019. Born in Philadelphia on July 6, 1932, Elaine was the loving daughter to the late Herman and Bertha Benz (nee Konchak).

Upon graduating Frankford High School in 1950, Elaine went on to work as a key punch for Unitty-Frankford Grocers. While at Cannstatter Volkfest Verein, Elaine met the love of her life, the late Wilfred Herrmann and they married on October 15, 1960.
