Mary Schwarz, 79 of Sturgeon Bay, passed away peacefully April 15th, 2021 at her home. She was born June 10, 1941 in Sheboygan to Charles and Margaret (Schnorr) Street. On Oct. 1, 1960 she married Wayne Schwarz. He preceded her in death on June 21, 2003.
Mary had a heart of gold and a fabulous sense of humor and she loved life and lived it with many passions. Mary loved her husband Wayne of 42 years. They loved Door County and spending time with their two sons Daniel and David.
Mary enjoyed cooking and baking for the family and continued that love for interesting recipes throughout her life. She enjoyed many fascinating travel adventures with her favorite sister Carole. Mary also had a soft spot for the furry friends and spent countless hours scratching the puppies and making them feel special.
Mary will be remembered by most as a truly talented artist enjoying spending time with her friends from various painting and quilting groups while making beautiful friendships and artwork. She also had the most unique large collection of red and white mushrooms that she believed to be her good luck charms. But most of all Mary loved her grandchildren Hunter and Mia. She was and will forever be their protecting angel that loved them with all her heart.
She is survived by 2 sons, David (Yu) Schwarz, Sturgeon Bay, WI and Dan (Gretel) Schwarz, Gills Rock, WI; 2 grandchildren, Hunter and Mia; sister Carole Engels, Gills Rock, WI; brother Richard Street, Sheboygan, WI; nieces and nephews.
