"...  In Loving Memory of - Barbara Lee Herdt  - 1943 - 2019  ( BY  Peter J. Herdt : Husband, Father, Professor of Law, Brother-in-Law, Chief of Police , Police Officer... )

   HERDT, Barbara Lee, age 76 of Washington Court House, passed away on Wednesday November 6, 2019.
 She was born to the late Milo Cassady and Mary (Sprouse) Cassady on March 11, 1943. She was one of seven children. ( SEE BELOW ) A truly most loving wife, mother, grandmother, business owner, and homemaker. Barbara was a lover of animals, antiques, and home remodels. Family and friends were Barbara’s passion and delight.
When she wasn’t outside taking care of her horses and dogs, she loved to watch home improvement shows, refinish furniture, – and rearrange both inside and outside of her home (often)! Barbara was born and grew up in Columbus, Ohio; and spent time living in California and Vermont before settling back in Ohio. She gave birth to three children in California and one child in Vermont. Survivors include her husband of over 52 years, Peter J. Herdt, whom she was demonstrably loyal and dedicated to; her four children, Rebecca L. (Herdt) Manville, David G. Herdt, Joseph P. F. Herdt, and Thomas V. Herdt; -- and her seven grandchildren; as well as her pets: Abby & Lilly (dogs) and Katie (horse). All the chickens, turkeys, pheasants, and other exotic birds kept by her husband, she tolerated!

 The family wishes to thank all those folks who cared for her during her last days. She will always be in the hearts of her family and friends.

  OBITUARY :: My biological sister -   BARBARA LEE HERDT [nee Cassady] Washington Court House, Ohio : Born, Columbus, Ohio 1942; last, Kettering Memorial Hospital – Kettering, Ohio - NOVEMBER 6, 2019 - AGE: 76 YEARS – has passed – due to complications from a required surgery... Barbara is preceded in passing by her senior brother (Richard Allen Cassady - born 5 years previous) and her father and mother [ Milo Gerald Cassady (1902:1964) AND Mary Elizabeth [Sprouse] - Cassady (1916:1985) ]

Survivors include: Husband: Peter J. Herdt; Four children: Becky, David, Thomas and Joseph; Numerous grandchildren; One younger brother [Milo Jr :"Buzz"] and Four sisters [Mildred, Carol, Susan (me) and Debbie]  In addition to her passion for her husband, children and grandchildren - Barbara loved her dogs, her horses and restoring vintage homes.  Barbara's "request" - at 12 years old - for [“baby sisters and brothers” -- as "the other girls had"] - resulted in our mother (Mary) giving birth to: (Me), Milo and Debbie.  Our sisters – [Carol and Mildred] were six and seven years of age - at this time.

 Barbara was the first female - in her family to graduate from Columbus Central High School (after her legend cousin – Howard "hopalong" attended there). Barbara began "paid employment"  - as a “clerk” for Lazarus Department Store - in Downtown Columbus. Barbara purchased her own car, learned to drive [in the “sixties”] - AND was employed by several insurance companies - in the Greater Columbus area - also.  She was a "department manager" when she met her husband Pete [above]. They were happily married for more than fifty years. Barbara supported Pete as he moved about the USA - serving (first) as a police-patrolman/detective and eventually as “Chief OF Police” in several USA Communities – including: the OSU campus and Riverside, Ohio. At the death of our father (Milo) – a “General Contractor” ( Columbus, Ohio ) - in 1964 - Barbara and Pete invited our younger brother (Milo Jr.) to live with them - in California. This changed the trajectory of Milo Jr’s life (at a key point) - and, helped him to develop into a, handsome, tall, strong and responsible young man. Barbara served as an inspiration to all who knew her. In fact, an excellent example - of what “hard work” and being “practical” - could gain a person – who was born to un-wealthy parents.  Barbara will be missed - by all those who knew her - AND, knew of her - via her large extended family.
