Barbara L. Schwartz, a retired longtime paraprofessional who worked with students in the Port Washington-Saukville School District’s special education program for 23 years, died Wednesday, Sept. 13, at Sharon S. Richardson Hospice in Sheboygan Falls. She was 68.
    Mrs. Schwartz, a Cedar Grove resident, died of leukemia, her husband Gereld said.
    Although her job was challenging, she was passionate about helping and advocating for children with special needs, her husband said.
    “She absolutely loved her job,” Mr. Schwartz said. “She took care of those children like they were her own.”
    Although she battled cancer for years, Mrs. Schwartz didn’t let the disease come between her and her students, her husband said.
    “She beat cancer three times,” he said. “She was a very strong woman.”
    Mrs. Schwartz worked briefly at Port Washington High School but spent most of her career in the district at Thomas Jefferson Middle School. She retired in 2016.
    “She missed it so much,” her husband said. “There were times when she almost cried because she couldn’t be with her students any more.”
    Mrs. Schwartz was born in Detroit on Jan. 8, 1949, the daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth Schneider Addy.
    The family moved to Milwaukee when she was a child, and Mrs. Schwartz graduated from Nicolet High School in Glendale.
    On March 11, 1986, she married Gereld Schwartz of Mercer in Hurley.
    A few years later, the couple moved to Port Washington. They later moved to Cedar Grove.
    In addition to her husband Gereld, Mrs. Schwartz is survived by her siblings Alice (Mike) Hamilton of Joplin, Mo., Mary (Elmer) Neuens of Brookfield, Terry Addy of Stanley and Tom (Brenda) Addy of Cascade; and brother-in-law Rick Pagel of Milwaukee.
    She was preceded in death by her parents and sister Jo-Ann Pagel.
    A celebration of Mrs. Schwartz’s life will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 30, at First Reformed Church in Cedar Grove.
    Cremation has taken place and her remains will be interred in Mercer Cemetery.

For almost three decades, Bernadyne M. Pape of Grafton helped shape the direction of Ozaukee County.
    Mrs. Pape was a member of the Ozaukee County Board for 28 years, from 1976 to 2004.
    “That was a big part of her life,” her son Jim said. “She just wanted to be active in the community and help her community. She took that very seriously. She really dug into whatever board she was on, studying each situation and informing herself on the issues.
    “She was a very conservative Republican, fiscally conservative. She looked out for the well-being of the county.”
    His mother was an advocate for the stadium tax that helped pay for Miller Park in Milwaukee and ensured the Milwaukee Brewers would remain in the area, Mr. Pape said, noting that after Ozaukee County approved the tax, other counties followed suit.
    Mrs. Pape died Sunday, Sept. 3, at her Grafton home. She was 96.
    She was born in Milwaukee on Nov. 8, 1920, to Joseph and Bertha Eckl.
    On Jan. 17, 1941, she married Norman Pape at Zion Lutheran Church in Milwaukee.
    The couple moved to Grafton in 1945, raising their seven children there.
    Mrs. Pape, who was known to friends as Bernie, was a devoted mother as well as a civic leader and businesswoman, her son said.
    For years, she operated Cedar Creek Antiques in the Cedar Creek Settlement, which her son restored in Cedarburg.
    “That kept her active,” her son said.
    She was also artistic, and designed some of the first labels for the Newberry Wines that her son created.
    Mrs. Pape also enjoyed golf, a sport her son said she took up “because she didn’t want to be a golf widow.”
    “She was quite good at it,” he said, noting she played into her 90s.
    Mrs. Pape was an avid Green Bay Packers fan who also enjoyed traveling, card games, puzzles and socializing. She was also active at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Grafton.
    “She was an independent-minded person,” her son said. “She had her own opinions and held them pretty strongly.”
    For example, he said, in high school, she wrote a paper on vitamins and their role in maintaining good health. She followed the advice in the paper and attributed her long life to taking vitamins.
    Mrs. Pape was interested in promoting science, he added, noting that in her 40s she decided to donate her body to science.
    Mrs. Pape is survived by her children James (Sandra), Kevin (Jackie), Dale and Leann Fabian, all of Cedarburg, Brian (Joy) of New York City, Heather (Kevin) Porterfield of the Town of Grafton and Craig (Deb) of Delavan; and grandchildren Matthew (Angela), Zachary (Lei), Rachael (Will) Churchill, Sarah Pape, Adam, Jesse, Molly Pape, Maggy Pape, Kelly (Melissa), Emily (Taylor) Pape, Hadley (Scott) Campbell, Maxwell, Janell (Andy) Grozalski, Lannon (Alyssa) Turowski, Falon Groth, Heather Groth, Jason (partner Ashley) Groth, J. Ryan Fonder, Dylan (Michelle) Porterfield, Logan Porterfield, Braydon, Heidi Pape, Annika Pape and Elliana Pape.
    She is further survived by 24 great-grandchildren.
    Mrs. Pape was preceded in death by her husband Norman on Jan. 5, 1994.
    A memorial service for Mrs. Pape will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 16, at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Grafton. The Rev. Scott Kruse will officiate.
    Visitation will be from 10 a.m. Saturday until the service.
    In lieu of flowers, memorials to St. Paul Lutheran Church are suggested.
