The following information comes from J. Hanon:
Marie Herndl was the only woman in her time to succeed as an artist in stained glass. Born in Munich, German in 1859 she came to Milwaukee in 1899. Although she chose to pursue an artistic career in painted glass, she admitted it was a difficult profession. In a Milwaukee Journal article in 1911 she said, "For a long time I had a hard time: the ways of the artist are not always bright, nor is the work as easy as some imagine...The work is so hard that unless one is determined and diligent as well as in love with it, failure is certain." Herndl died at her home in Milwaukee on May 14, 1912 at the age of 53.
