Marcia (Pickering) Swartz

September 14, 1946 ~ January 8, 2022 (age 75)


Swartz, Marcia Sue, age 75, of Waterford, passed away January 8, 2022. Marcia was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio. During high school she met a guy she just couldn’t get rid of, Bob Swartz. So just before college ended, she married him, and it stuck for 52 wonderful years. She is also survived by her two sons, David M., of Bishop, Georgia, and Matthew A., of Sterling Heights, Michigan. David gave us a fantastic daughter-in-law, Rachel and two grandchildren; Ella and Evan. Matthew gave us a wonderful daughter-in-law Toni and two grandchildren; Marshall and Marin. These eight souls have been the focus and meaning of Marcia’s life. Her passion for them survived and far overshadowed her bout with Multiple Sclerosis for the last 21 years. She is also survived by her sister; Linda Jo and Cousin Jo who both live out of state. Marcia and Bob have lived in Waterford since 1973 when she became active in the Jaycettes community service organization. She worked as a teacher’s aide at “My School” preschool and was also a very active member of Central United Methodist Church, where she applied and enjoyed using her many artistic, crafting and cooking skills in multiple programs and projects. A Memorial service will be held at a later date to be determined. Arrangements entrusted to Coats Funeral Home- Waterford. Memorial donations in Marcia’s name may be made to the Multiple Sclerosis Society or the Central United Methodist Church. Kindly keep Marcia and her family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
