The standard way to credit this original author is:

 - if the patch is unchanged just keep her as the From: and
 - if you add small changes add your Signed-off-by to hers, and
   a note like [bob: fix foobarbaz] before it.
 - if you substantially rewrite a patch add it as From and
   Signed-off-by you, but add a note to the patch text that mentions
   the original work it is based on.
