Jeanette “Jan” Schwartz, age 84, died Monday, June 14.
Jan retired from Wayland Union Schools as a bus driver after 15 years. She worked as a hairdresser out of her home beauty shop. Jan loved to golf, play cards, go on fishing trips, and trips up north – stopping at a few casinos on the way. She truly enjoyed her Halloween eve shenanigans.
She is survived by her husband of 61 years, Donald Schwartz; daughter, Kay (Don) Moore; grandson, Travis (Erica) Moore; sister, Judy Padilla; brother-in-law, Jerry (Linda) Schwartz; sister-in-law, Lois Soloman; lifelong friends Roger and Sue Holmes; many nieces, nephews, and friends.
She was preceded in death by her son, Tim Schwartz; and many other family members.
A celebration of life will be held from 1 to 3 and 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, June 26, at Kubiak Cook Funeral Home, 312 N. Main St., Wayland.
In honor of Jan and in lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Thornapple Manor.
