Jane E. Herzog-Mangini


BERNE — Jane E. Herzog-Mangini, a native of Berne, died on Friday, June 17, 2016, in Summerfield, Florida.

She was born on Oct. 30, 1929 in Berne to Stephen and Esther (née Wright) Komjathy.

Mrs. Herzog-Mangini worked for Helen’s Supermarket in East Berne, the Berne-Knox-Westerlo schools, the New York State Department of Transportation, and as an assistant purchasing agent for the New York State Office of Mental Health.

She was a member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Berne and Hope Lutheran Church in The Villages, Florida.

In the late 1980s, Mrs. Herzog-Mangini and her late husband, William Herzog, moved to Florida. They spent many years enjoying retirement. Spring to fall they spent in New York State, on Camp Woodstock in Berne. Most of all they looked forward to their Christmas visits to New York State to spend the holidays with family.

“Mrs. Herzog-Mangini was a dedicated and loving mom to all seven of her children and enjoyed special times with grandchildren and great-grandchildren,” her family wrote in a tribute.

She enjoyed her crossword puzzles; making leather purses, belts, and wallets; sewing; knitting; baking cakes for special occasions; shopping; making jewelry; and meeting friends for lunch.


Jane E. Herzog-Mangini is survived by her husband, Lawrence Mangini Sr., and three stepchildren, Lawrence Jr., Edward, and Evelyn.

She is also survived by her four sons, Steven Herzog and his wife, Sally, of Strongsville, Ohio; Martin Herzog and his wife, Marie, of East Berne; Lawrence Herzog, of East Berne; and Timothy Herzog and his wife, Lynn, of Delanson, and her three daughters, Deborah Morey and her husband, Chris, of East Berne; Kathy Anderson, of Guilderland Center; and Kim Herzog, also of Guilderland Center.

In addition to 10 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren, she leaves behind three sisters — Evelyn Paddock, Dorothy Herzog, and Patricia Van Haugg — as well as several cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Mrs. Herzog-Mangini is also survived by her special friend, Linda S. Sami.

Her first husband, William Herzog, died before her, as did her parents and one brother, David S. Komjathy Sr.

Family and friends are welcome to attend a memorial service on Saturday, Sept. 17, at 10 a.m. in Helderberg Lutheran Church at 1728 Helderberg Trail in Berne.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Northeast Kidney Foundation, 501 New Karner Rd., #6, Albany, NY 12205, or to the Helderberg Lutheran Church, 1728 Helderberg Trail, Berne, NY 12023.
