She never met a stranger that she was not kind to and will always be remembered for that. She is preceeded in death by her parents, grandparents and niece. She is survived by her loving husband and soulmate Hal Schwartz; children, Kara (Kevin), and Kali and (Nathan); grandchildren, Kinleigh and Zoey; siblings, Linda, Tracy (Jack), Bill (Kimm), Penny (Tom) along with many cherished friends, nieces and nephews.
