She and her husband Isaac had four children, one of whom is still alive. They have 11 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. Ms Hermanus was a receptionist for Independent Newspapers for 37 years, before retiring in 2014. When asked what the secret to ageing gracefully was, she replied:  “I am always there for everyone, any time and anywhere. I love people and I love being among people, which is why I suppose, I got the job (at Independent).”
