Anne Herron Obituary

Anne “Nancy” Herron, MD, M.R.C.P. (UK)

September 28, 1942 - July 8, 2024

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear sister Nancy of St. Louis, Missouri, USA. Nancy was the only girl in a family of six and was deeply loved by her five brothers. She was a thoughtful, compassionate, and caring member of our family.

Nancy leaves behind beloved family members: her brother Noel (Vancouver, B.C., Canada), his children Sean Herron and Kerry-Ann Herron; her brother Malachy (Birmingham, England), his wife Julia and their children Maura (Jim) Jolliffe, Lynda (Peter) Griffin, Joe (Helen) Herron; and her dear youngest brother Dermot (Ardara, County Donegal, Ireland). Nancy will be dearly missed by her niece, Amy (Andrew) Miller (Logansport, Indiana) as well as many great nieces and nephews living in US, Canada and UK: Noah Miller, Samuel Miller, Jack Miller, Braedon Herron, Amanda Herron, Niall Jolliffe, Niamh Jolliffe, Daniel Griffin, Jonathan Griffin, Benedict Griffin, Lorna Herron, Ben Herron, Issac Herron & Isabel Herron. Nancy was predeceased by her brothers John and Vincent.

Among those closest to Nancy are the family of Dr. John and Evelyn McGarry of St. Louis. They have offered many decades of friendship, unfailing support and kindness. They have been especially important over the past few years as Nancy struggled against the challenges of Parkinson’s.

We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to Jena Strauss-Schoenberger and the staff at Aberdeen Heights for the care and companionship they provided to Nancy during the course of her illness. We would also like to thank several special friends whose frequent visits over the last several years were treasured and offered much joy and solace to Nancy: Una McGarry, Mary McDonald, Margorie Reilly. Nancy will also be fondly remembered by many close friends in Northern Ireland and France.

Nancy began her education at Ardara National School, followed by secondary school at the Ursuline Convent in Sligo. Her initial medical training began at University College, Dublin (M.B., B.Ch., B.A.O.) followed by an internship at St. Vincent’s Hospital Dublin. This was followed by: a year at Glasgow University; then Senior House Officer in Pediatrics and Junior Tutor at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children; a year teaching Clinical and Applied Physiology at Queens University Belfast; Senior House Office Neurology at Claremont Street Hospital Belfast, Northern Ireland; Senior House Officer General Internal Medicine at Whiteabbey Hospital; Tutor and Registrar at St. Finbarr’s Hospital Cork.

Nancy became a member of the Royal College of Physicians of the United Kingdom in 1974. In 1975, she obtained a fellowship in Rheumatology at the University of Chicago and a Fellow of Rheumatology at the Washington University School of Medicine in 1976.

In 1977, Nancy joined St. Luke’s Hospital in Chesterfield, Missouri where she had a fulfilling career practicing alongside colleagues she regarded highly. She cared deeply for her patients, was a dedicated and esteemed member of the medical profession, and a proud member of St. Luke’s medical team.

Nancy’s passing leaves a deep void in our family and we will miss her greatly.

Rest well dear sister and may angels guard thee. And, as in the ancient Irish wish, may your soul rest at the Right hand of God.

Slán,

The Herron Family,

Noel (Canada), Malachy (England), and Dermot (Ireland)


Visitation will be held on July 14, 2024, from 4pm to 7pm  at Bopp Chapel, Kirkwood, MO.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of Anne Herron to the American Parkinson Disease
