Leonard “Lenny” Schwartz, (born May 6, 1946) and Mary (born September 26, 1948) loving husband and wife. Lenny from Minneapolis, Minnesota and Mary from Iola, Wisconsin survived by her mother Dona Gjertson.
Lenny and Mary raised three children, Mark, Thomas, and Stephen, to be compassionate, creative and intelligent adults who made their parents proud. As a beloved couple they brought a joy to their community through their work, he as a middle school principal, and she as a nurse in Hastings, MN. They fostered a spirit of faith and family and always had time to offer a kind word or a kind act to brighten someone’s day. This spirit continued when they retired to Tucson, AZ where they remained dedicated to good works and enjoyed spending time with their six grandchildren and Catholic community.
Their passing on March 21 and 22, 2016 leaves great heartache, but the many lives touched by their kindness are grateful to have known these generous souls. They will be deeply missed.
Celebration of Life, April 16 11:30 a.m. at St. Odilia Catholic Community. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a contribution to Hastings Public Schools Foundation at http://www.hastingspsf.org/
