Sally Ann Herrmann


Sally Ann Herrmann, of Lake Shawnee of Jefferson Township, formerly of Totowa Boro, Little Falls, Cedar Grove, and  Pompton Lakes, passed at home on Saturday, July 29, 2017. 

She was born to Salvatore and Anne Longo in Paterson and raised in Totowa Boro for the first twenty-five years of her life. She graduated from Passaic Valley High School with the Class of 1973.

Sally’s work history includes working at Trudy’s Bakery in Little Falls where she loved the crumb buns. She trained to be a cosmetologist and worked at The Gallery in West Caldwell, Hair Power in Fort Lee, and finally opened her own shop called Identity which she operated in West Caldwell. She later worked for the Dynafair Corporation in Parsippany as a Service Manager for all 50 states and Puerto Rico. When the company moved its headquarters to Tampa Florida she worked from home. Most recently she worked as a groomer for Laura’s Pet Spa in Whippany.

Sally will be remembered as a thoughtful, artistic, caring person who was meticulous, patient, and who always put family and friends needs ahead of her own. She made awesome cheesecake, cream puffs, rum cake, and excellent Cannoli’s. All that she baked tasted great but she also used her artistic flair to accentuate the flavors to come. She cared deeply about family and friends which was always evidenced at her Christmas party where she would lovingly shop for unique ornaments to gift to each person who came.

Sally was the loving wife of 37 years to Gene Herrmann; loving sister of Roseanne Fisher and her husband Bill of Franklin Lakes, Bernadette DeSilver and her husband James of Sparta, and Barbara Longo of Lake Hopatcong; she was the much loved aunt of Anna Luna and her husband Scott, Brian Fisher and his wife Leilani, Michael DeSilver and his wife Lauren, and Bradley Fisher and his wife Lina; she was deeply loved by many great-nieces, great-nephews, and friends.

Friends may visit with the family from 4-8 PM on Wednesday, August 2, 2017 at the Vander May Wayne Colonial Funeral Home, 567 Ratzer Road, Wayne.

Funeral services will be held 10 AM on Thursday, August 3, 2017 from the funeral home then to Saint Marys RC Church, 17 Pompton Ave., Pompton Lakes where an 11 AM Funeral Mass will be offered.

The world was a much better place with Sally in it. I will forever miss her smiling face - her sage advice - her funny stories - her great dream interpretations - picking lottery numbers together and how she would always always be there if you needed a shoulder to cry on. Sally you were a special person and a great friend. Hope you get a brand new corvette in heaven. God bless you Sally.

Sabina Anderson


I think of Sally every time I take my Pom to Laura's and I miss her warm, friendly greeting and sweet smile. Sally was a lovely woman with a kind spirit and she always made me feel welcome. I wish her beautiful soul eternal peace and rest with angels. I hope that, with the passage of time, Sally's family will be comforted by their fond memories of their time with her. May God bless and keep you.

Kathy Cantisano


I am so very sorry that you all have had to face such a loss. Sally lit up the room with her smile and infectious laughter. And I am not sure who enjoyed her pictures more, those of us who got to see them or Sally who had such joy taking them! It was so obvious how much she loved her extended family. I hope you will find some peace in remembering that love.

Kathryn Kaplan


Gene, I just found out today about Sally passing. My sympathy, thoughts and prayers go out to you and the family. Sally was a great girl I remember our card games on Van Pelt and her laughter. I am sure Michael and her are catching up on the news. Take care and love to all.
