Mrs. Swartz was born May 12, 1931, in Everett, a daughter of Albert H. and Nina L. Vitagliano. She was a graduate of Everett High School and had lived in Newton, Salem, Newburyport, Boca Raton, and Ipswich before moving to Sutton, where she made many new friends. She worked along side her husband for many years, assisting him in his interior design business. She was an accomplished seamstress, gourmet cook, and enjoyed baking and knitting. In her younger years, she enjoyed horseback riding and more recently online jigsaw puzzles. Most of all, her true joy and happiness was found when spending time with her beloved grandchildren, whom she adored and cherished.
