Marilyn “Lyn” Schwarz, of many places, New York, Pennsylvania, Georgia, South Carolina, and back to Pennsylvania, where she passed away at 3:05 p.m. on Jan. 7, 2019. She was the wife of Peter Schwarz, with whom she celebrated 55 years of marriage on Dec. 28, 2018.

She was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., on April 22, 1933. Lyn and Peter raised their family in the Lehigh Valley and Poconos. After retirement they traveled far and wide; no moss could grow under them.

Lyn had a lifelong passion for the arts. Lyn was a commercial interior designer up and down the East Coast, and her longest client was Manhattan Savings Bank in New York City. Her love of art and travel was represented in her paintings that were admired by family, friends and art show patrons. She became a Master Gardener in retirement and her gardens were beautifully designed to play, relax and entertain. She was known for her quick wit, infectious smile and her kind and compassionate spirit. Lyn was a member of Queen of the Universe Catholic Church.

In addition to her husband Peter, she is survived by her son, Robert of Nederland, Colo., and her daughter, Suzan, wife of Harry Haegele, of Bristol, Pa.; and her beloved dog, Lollipop.

A memorial of life Mass will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, Jan. 14, 2019, at Queen of the Universe Chapel, 2443 Trenton Road, Levittown, PA 19056
