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.
