Celebrating nearly 100 years of life stretching from South Dakota to Australia and beyond. Lois Schwartz will be missed by many. Leaving behind four generations or Schwartz’s as a mother, grandmother. great grandmother, and great great grandmother as well an aunt and more. Survived by her two sons – David and Kenneth, niece – Debbie, grandchildren – Reid, Jennifer, and Lee, and many great & great great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her parents Seymour and Emma Berven; husband – Maury Schwartz; sister – Eunice McGee; nieces – Donna Bompas and Diana Matovich; and nephews – Ronald Berven, Michael Schwartz, Jackie Schwartz, and Richard Schwartz.

Born and raised on a farm in South Dakota, she met and married Maury Schwartz in Los Angeles, California in 1947, and lived the rest of her life in the West LA/Bel Air/Beverly Hills area. She and Maury enjoyed many years of travel, visiting countries around the world including Europe, Asia, Australia, the Middle East and Russia, and experiencing their travel in style with trips on the Supersonic Concord and sailing on the Queen Elizabeth II. She and Maury enjoyed fresh-water fishing, including making their own fly rods; lapidary including searching for precious stones, largely in Australia, and making them into beautiful pieces of jewelry; and photography, with a dark room for developing and printing built into the house.

After Maury’s passing, Lois continued her adventures, making trips to visit family in the Northwest, back to visit family and her roots in South Dakota, even joining grandkids and great grandkids at Disneyland a few times. She didn’t slow down until she had to, and even then, family came to visit her.

She will be missed immensely.
