Janet M. Schwartz, 63, of Dayton, NJ passed away on May 16, 2022 at University of Pennsylvania Hospital.
Born and raised in Greenwood PA, Janet attended Wilkes University class of 1980, where she graduated top of her class. Janet had a natural born intelligence and was a very giving person. She accomplished so much during her life. While attending St. Mary’s grade school she tested highest in the country, thus putting St. Mary’s school on the map. Janet was a dedicated employee for Dow Jones in South Brunswick, where she was employed for 40 years before her passing.
Away from work, Janet found solace being in her own home with the ones she loved close by. She was a fan of baseball and enjoyed watching games whenever she could. Janet held onto her traditional family values and was very family oriented. Within her family, Janet began the Wigilia Christmas Eve tradition where family would gather and together, she would cook pierogies and homemade soups with her nieces and nephews – something everyone looked forward to.
Predeceased by her parents Marvin and Regina (Grabowski) Hocking and sister Deborah Duffy, she is survived by her husband of 30 years, William Schwartz; her children Aubrey Schwartz (Steven Swecanski) and Keith Schwartz; her brother Robert Hocking; a Brother in Law, Robert Duffy; and 14 nieces and nephews. Janet is also survived by her extended family and friends.
