No One Can Keep A Good Woman Down (Honoring Marian Sullivan Schwarz)

Larry Long will be performing his new song “No One Can Keep a Good Woman Down” with 8th Grade Leadership students in honor of Mrs. Marian Sullivan Schwarz’s on her 104th Birthday at the Cashton Community Hall on Wednesday, October 18, 2017, 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM.

This performance is part of a Cashton Community Celebration where students will also be reciting select words shared by Mrs. Schwarz about Mrs. Marian Sullivan Schwarz’s life.  She will also be presented with a framed copy of the song lyrics and photo put together by her great grandson, Aiden Cook.

About Mrs. Marian Sullivan Schwarz:  Mrs. Marian Sullivan Schwarz grew up in Lyon’s Valley with her five sisters.  During that time she grew to be a strong woman full of moxey and hope.  

 In 1933, Marian received her first teaching job at Clements School in Portland, WI.  For over 40 years she worked in the field of education in either a teacher or principal role.  Her love of children and respect for the field has continued to this day.  

 While teaching, Marian raised four children, milked cows, took care of a home, and attended college to earn her bachelor’s and master’s degrees.  Many challenges faced her along the way such as WWII, Women’s Rights, and the day-to-day doings of a mother and a wife.  Through it all she remained strong and driven.  That drive is evident to this day as she reaches a new milestone in her life.
