Winifred “Winnie” Janette Schwartz, age 87, of Darlington, WI passed away Saturday, March 23, 2019 at UW-Hospital in Madison, WI. She was born January 6, 1932 in Darlington, WI, the daughter of Lawrence and Alta (Arnsmeier) Mill. Winnie graduated from Darlington High School in 1949 and later from Madison Beauty School. She was united in marriage to Ray Schwartz on March 8, 1952 at her family home. Winnie lived in Darlington all of her life where she worked as a beautician for Harriet Wahlenkamp and Phyllis Whitford before working for and eventually buying out Muldoon’s Beauty Shop in 1970. From 1971 until 2002 she owned and operated Alure Beauty Shop in Darlington.

Winnie is survived by her four children: Rebecca Stephens, Thomas (Karen) Schwartz, Rita (Mark) Hermanson, and Ruth Williams all of Darlington; 11 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren; two great-great-granddaughters; and two exceptionally great friends: Dave (Jane) Olson of Argyle, WI and Joe (Kim) Wedig family of Darlington. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Ray in 2011; four children in infancy; two sons-in-law: Ronald Stephens and David Williams; one brother: James Mill; and one sister: Carolyn Peterson.

Winnie was a proud member of Bates-O’Brien-Howe-Wiegel- Roelli American Legion Post #214 Auxiliary of Darlington. She enjoyed crocheting, sewing, quilting, and baking. Winnie cherished the time she spent with her family, especially her grandchildren creating memories they will all remember forever. She will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by her family and friends.
