Sharon M. Schwartz, age 69, of Weston died at Marshfield Medical Center – Marshfield with her loving family by her side.
Sharon was born on November 27, 1952 in Wausau to Gertrude (Gliniecki) Gabrielski and the late Milton Gabrielski. She attended Newman Catholic High School and obtained her nursing degree from UW Madison. Sharon spent her career as a Registered Nurse and medical administrator in the Wausau area. She maintained her nursing license to the time of her passing.
Sharon married the love of her life, Dennis Schwartz, on June 8, 1974 at Holy Name of Jesus Parish in Wausau. Family was the most important part of Sharon and Dennis' lives. She hardly ever missed any of the kids or grandkids events and were their number one fans in life. Sharon enjoyed family holidays, reunions, travel and especially time at their condo on the beach in South Carolina. Always a caregiver, she put others before herself, even volunteering with Dennis at Marshfield Medical Center Weston after her retirement. Sharon was a faithful and active member of St. Agnes Catholic Church. She also assisted in distribution of Holy Communion to patients in Marshfield Medical Center Weston.
As a die hard Badger fan, Sharon loved attending Badger football games-hosting the most impressive parking lot tailgates and always keeping the tradition of doing shots of Jezynowka to ensure a Badger victory. She always stayed connected to UW through events like Badger Band concerts and Grandparents University or her collections of UW memorabilia.
Sharon was a selfless individual who lived life to the fullest, was the ultimate hostess, and never missed a beat in the lives of those around her. She will be missed by many.
Sharon is survived by her husband of 48 years, Dennis Schwartz; sons Kevin (Becky) Schwartz, Eric (Joy) Schwartz and Adam (Roberta) Schwartz; grandchildren Connor, Annika, Grayson and Ethan Schwartz; mother Gertrude Gabrielski; siblings Milton “Butch” (Beth) Gabrielski and Renee (John) Gullickson.
Funeral Service will be held at St Agnes Catholic Church on Monday, June 20, 2022 at 11:00 am. Visitation will be held at 9:00 am until the time of service at the church on Monday.
The family would like to thank the medical staff and pastoral care team at Marshfield Medical Centers Weston and Marshfield.
