Marla Ann Herzog 70, passed away Sunday, February 18, 2024 at the Macomb Post Acute Care Center in Macomb, IL.

She was born April 8, 1953 in Iowa City, IA, the daughter of Dr. Donald Roswell and Elaine Lydia Lawson Herzog.

She is survived by her son Justin T. Prevo of Carthage, IL., one brother Dr. Daryl R. Herzog of Atascadero, CA., cousins Alan (Annette) Baldwin of Darlington, WI., Ruth Lawson of Fort Madison, IA., Ron (Sue) Lawson, Ron (Selena) Lawson II, Alyssa Lawson and Alexander Lawson, all from Keokuk, IA., and her                                                                        beloved cats, Saffron, Darwin, Alien and Thistle.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her brother Darwin R. Herzog of Carson, CA., her sister-in-law Priscilla M. Herzog of Atascadero, CA., aunts and uncles Rachel and Paul Baldwin of Warsaw, IL., Lloyd and Eudora Lawson of Keokuk, IA., and John Walter Lawson of St. Petersburg, FL.

Marla’s father was in the military and with various jobs moved his family around the country living in Ohio, Texas and finally settling in California. Marla graduated from Carson High School in 1971.

Marla married Joseph Prevo in 1975 and had one child, Justin Prevo. They were later divorced. She married Jeff Robbins in 1989, but they later divorced.

Marla started her career working various office jobs and banking, finally retiring in 2003 as an Office Specialist lll from the County of Orange in Santa Ana, CA. During her work years she was known as a skilled typist and excelled in data entry and training coworkers. She lived in Buena Park, CA., at the time,  and after retiring moved to Warsaw, IL., to be closer to her Aunt Rachel. She liked the small town atmosphere and devoted her time to taking care of her son and rescuing animals, mainly cats. She was always an avid animal lover. One time, she saw a turtle crossing the road and stopped her car to personally carry the turtle to the other side of road to make sure it made it across safely.

Marla was an enthusiastic movie buff and would travel to Keokuk, Quincy, Burlington and Fort Madison to see the latest movie. She loved to try different restaurants in the local small towns she visited.

Marla was always young at heart and child-like in her love for toys and Barbies. She would go to McDonald’s and order a happy meal for herself just to get the latest collectible.

Marla was a people person and loved learning about different cultures. She was a kind and loving person and her faith and love of God carried her to the last days of her life

Services will be scheduled at a later date.

Internment will be at the Oakland Cemetery in Warsaw, IL.
