Dorothy Margaret Schwartz was born near Waelder, Texas, on June 24, 1924, to “Joe” and Mattie Fogle, both of whom predeceased her.

Brothers, Harry, Marvin, and Monroe, and sister, Jessie, predeceased her. She is survived by brothers, Truett, Stephen, and Walter Joe, and sisters Velma and Janice.

Dorothy graduated from Mary Hardin-Baylor in 1951 and began her career as a teacher both in schools and Sunday Schools. She stopped teaching school in 2015 at the age of 91.

Dorothy was a lady to never be forgotten. She always had a heartwarming smile and infectious laughter. We can’t find words to express our sorrow over her passing. She touched many lives.

In memory and love,

Aunt Dorothy was married to my Uncle Douglas who was my favorite uncle. We thought he would never marry and were happy he finally found the right girl. Aunt Dorothy and I shared the same profession of teaching - but she loved it more than I, I'm sure, because she continued so long. I really liked hearing her talk and share her stories and her laughter.

We will all miss her. God Bless.

Dear Maxine and Gene, Dorothy is a shining star that God has called back home. She was a sweet sweet soul. I loved her stories that she would tell me when I was driving her to church and back .
Many stories about the dairy farm here in South Austin. She will be missed by many.
