Amy Elizabeth Herzog Rominger
January 21, 1976 – March 18, 2015
Amy Elizabeth Herzog Rominger, age 39, of New Castle, DE, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 18, 2015, after courageously battling health issues for the past several years.
Born in New Brunswick, NJ on January 21, 1976, Amy was the beloved daughter of Elva I. Nickle and Steven Herzog. She lived in Piscataway until leaving New Jersey to attend college in 1994. An honor student in both high school and college, she was a 1994 graduate of Piscataway (NJ) High and received her B.A. in Communication from the University of Delaware in 1998.
Amy was deeply creative and enjoyed oil painting, philosophy and poetry. She was a lifelong supporter of the humane treatment of animals. In her leisure time, Amy loved to travel and her favorite destination was Hawaii. She held her family and friends very close to her heart and recently wrote an expression of that sentiment: “Hold your family near and dear. Keep them close year after year. If you love them, have no fear, because family is there year after year.”
She was preceded in death by her uncles, Jeffery Herzog and John H. Nickle, Jr. Amy will be dearly missed by her mother, Elva I. Nickle of New Castle, DE; father, Steven Herzog (Joan) of Glen Mills, PA; husband, Rodney Ernest Rominger of Avondale, PA; mother and father-in-law, Brenda and Ernest Rominger of Avondale, PA; brother, Lee Herzog (Katie) of Manhattan, NY; step sister, Audrey Cosgrove (Matthew) of Leontown, MD; sister-in-law, Kristine Rominger of Newport, DE; aunts, Elizabeth Saunders (W. Daniel) of Delaware City, DE and Kandace Herzog of Andalusia, PA; uncles, Henry Nickle (Anne) of Greenville, DE and Irving Herzog (Sandy) of Warrington, PA; cousins, Elizabeth Nickle of Washington, D.C., Janet Saunders Nida (Adrian) of Charleston, SC, Curtis Saunders of Burlington, VT, Scott Nickle of Norton, MA, Eileen Turner (Andrew) of Mt. Laurel, NJ and Lisa Waxman (Rick) of West Chester, PA; and friends.
