BOZEMAN, Mont. - Martha Louise Schueler Herman, former New Canaan resident, died July 2. She was 97.

Herman, also known as Marty, was born May 6, 1916, in Chicago, Ill., to Martha Keith Schueler and Frank Schueler. She graduated from The University School for Girls in 1933 and Northwestern University in 1937. She did volunteer work during and after college with The Traveler’s Aid Society and Children’s Memorial Hospital.

She worked in the bridal department of Saks Fifth Avenue (in Chicago). Her husband’s changing job positions led to moves to Los Angeles, Calif., Cambridge and Concord, Mass., New Canaan, Potomac, Md., (while he served as assistant to the Secretary of Transportation, William Coleman) and back to New Canaan. In October of 2011, at 95, she moved to Bozeman, Mont., to be near her daughter. From 1955 until her move, she was a member of First Church of Christ Scientist, New Canaan, serving in the Sunday School and several committees.

Herman was a member of First Church of Christ, Scientist, Bozeman and a supporter of Club 4880 of Toastmasters International.

Herman is survived by her daughter, Carolyn Hopper of Bozeman; and two grandchildren. She was predeceased by her parents; husband, Hamilton; and brother, Richard Schueler.

There will be a private celebration of Marty’s life.
