Marjorie (Meyers) Schwartz Aug. 26, 1921 - July 6, 2018

Marjorie (Meyers) Schwartz, 96, of Logansport, was reunited with loved ones who had gone before her on July 6, 2018. She was born on Aug. 26, 1921 to the late Charles John Meyers and Marie (Kesling) Meyers.

On Aug. 28, 1941, she married the love of her life, Robert Woodrow Schwartz (also from Logansport, Indiana). He passed away on April 2, 1998 at 79 years of age.

She was a member of the Market Street Methodist Church (now called Crosswinds Methodist Church) in Logansport. She also was a member of the DOC (Disciples of Christ). In addition, Marjorie belonged for over 70 years to the Home Extension Club, Business and Professional Women, Third Mothers Study Club and The Dinshiggers.

Marjorie was a Logansport High School graduate (class of 1939) and attended Ball State University, majoring in English/Literature.

Marjorie was a homemaker and mother first. She worked for the Cass County Treasurer’s Office, Cass County Clerk’s Office and Longcliff State Mental Hospital as an Admission Officer.

Marjorie’s favorite passion was looking at maps and preparing vacations for the family. When retired, she vigorously pursued all of the details ahead of vacations in even greater detail. Their last years together, they wintered near Bonita Springs, Florida. They both loved the climate during those winter months in Indiana.

She was preceded in death by her brother, Charles, Jr., who died at age 6 of the 1918 flu pandemic.
