            Zee, as she was known to family and friends, was a devoted wife and mother.  She graduated from Purdue University and began her career as a home economics teacher before she prioritized family over career.  Zee was very active in her Huntingburg community.  She was a member of the Library Board, Study Club, Sunday School Teacher and pianist for the United Methodist Church’s early morning service.  She was an amazing cook and loved to entertain.  She also loved to travel and did so into her 80’s.  She also loved music and attending concerts with her daughter Karen.

                She moved to Naples, Florida, permanently in 2018 for health reasons, but her heart never left Huntingburg.

                She is survived by their four children, daughter Karen Schwartz of Naples, Florida, and sons Ken Schwartz (Barb) of Morgantown, Indiana, John Schwartz (Courtney) of Huntingburg, Indiana, and Jim Schwartz (Jodi) of Noblesville, Indiana.  She has five grandchildren, Stanley Schwartz, Stephen Schwartz (Kaya), Lucy Schwartz, Molly Schwartz and Davis Schwartz; and many extended family members spread across several states.
