Mary C. Schwarz, 59, wife of Paul Schwarz, of Phoenixville, passed away on Wednesday, July 9, 2008, in the Neighborhood Hospice in West Chester, Pennsylvania, after her brave struggle with cancer.

Mary was the loving daughter of Stanley and Mary Wroblewski of Philadelphia. Mary was preceded in death by her parents and her beloved brother, David Wroblewski.

She was born in Philadelphia, where she lived until she was married, when she moved to Chicago with her husband, Paul, who was in the United States Navy.

Mary then had her first child, Jennifer, five years later. Mary had her second child, Jeffrey, and shortly thereafter moved to Phoenixville. Next came Steven, her third child, after which Mary worked for St. Peters Child Care.

She then worked at the Phoenixville District Court where she was employed as a civil clerk for 14 years in a position she truly loved due to her interaction with the wonderful people of Phoenixville. She was an active member of Holy Trinity Church.

Mary was a faithful wife to her husband Paul for 40 years, dedicated mother and steadfast friend. Our lives without her will be forever changed and we will miss her deeply.

Mary is survived by her brother, Jan Wroblewski; her husband, Paul Schwarz; her children, Jennifer, wife of David Dunacusky, Jeffrey, husband of Lisa Schwarz, and Steven Schwarz; and grandchildren, Adam Dunacusky, Andrew Dunacusky and Stanley Schwarz.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend her Funeral Mass at the Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church, 219 Dayton Street, Phoenixville, on Tuesday, July 14, 2008, at 10:30 a.m.

Officiating will be the Rev. Michael W. Rzonca.
