Obituary for Dorothy "Dottie" Herweg (Glahn)

Dorothy "Dottie"  Herweg (Glahn)
Dorothy “Dottie” Glahn Herweg passed away peacefully at age 94 on Tuesday, April 16, 2019.

Dottie, the second of four children of Pastor Paul and Edna Glahn, was raised in Evansville, IL. After attending Southern Illinois University, Dottie earned her RN at the Washington University School of Nursing. On graduating, she accepted a position at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, where she rose to become head nurse on the infants’ ward.

In 1959, she married John C. Herweg, M.D. and became the mother to Marjorie, Mary Jo, and James. John and Dottie had one daughter, Jan Marie. They also had a loving, supportive marriage that lasted 59 years.

As her children grew, Dottie was active driving carpools, serving as a room mother, and chauffeuring children to music lessons and baseball practice.

Dottie was an avid fan of the Cardinals all her life. Growing up, she listened to the games on the radio, and when she moved to St. Louis, she cheered her team from the bleachers at Sportsman’s Park as often as possible.

For decades, Dottie spent every Thursday birdwatching with the Webster Groves Nature Study Society. If an unusual bird was sighted in the region, Dottie got a call from the birders’ hotline and she and John would drive to see it. In retirement, Dottie and John traveled throughout the United States and the world to spot birds. They especially enjoyed traveling with groups led by expert birding guides.

Dottie’s favorite location for birding was the family cottage in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. She always had her binoculars close at hand while sitting on the porch swing, riding in the water wheeler, or hiking up the lane.

Dottie’s kind spirit and sweet smile will be greatly missed.

Private services were held at Bopp Chapel in Kirkwood, MO. Memorials in Dottie Herweg’s name would be appreciated to: St. Louis Children’s Hospital Foundation, One Children’s Place, St. Louis, MO 63110; National Audubon Society, 225 Varick St
