Muriel Elizabeth Herk
Muriel Elizabeth Herk left this earth on Tuesday, April 30, 2019 at the age of 101. She was born to Jacob and Lillian Moeller in Brooklyn, New York on September 7, 1917.
Nana had a zest for life like no other. She loved to dance with her great grand children to her favorite 1920s tunes. She and her husband Frank traveled the United Stated in their travel trailer after they retired. She made many friends along the way. Nana, as she is fondly remembered by her grandchildren never forgot a birthday or a name and loved to tell the stories of her past to all. Her family will miss her dearly and rejoice in knowing she is now dancing in Heaven with her beloved Frank.
She is survived by her daughter, Elizabeth “Betty” Frances Cardiff of Katy; former son-in-law, William Cardiff, Jr.; grandchildren, Michelle Feild (Ricky) of Katy, Shannon Walla (Rusty) of Galveston, Kristen Daves (Royce) of Katy, and Kelly Franco (Steve) of Austin; great-grandchildren, Shelby Martinez, Austin Martinez, Maisy Johnson, Lily Fay Daves, Kolby Daves, Corey Daves, Preston Daves, Connor Bennett, Morgan Bennett, Ross Bennett, Justin Feild, Jace Feild, Taylor Walla, Matthew Walla, Reagan Walla, Nathan Walla, Isabelle Franco, Nick Franco, Julia Franco, and Zelda Franco; five great great grandchildren; and her beloved Chihuahua, Peppi. Muriel was preceded in death by her late husband, Francis Gustav Herk; and her mother, Lillian Smith.
A graveside service will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 at the Lakeland Hills Cemetery in Marble Falls, Texas.
