Patricia Faye Swartz, 87, of Flemington passed away Monday, July 26, 2021 at Susque View Home, Lock Haven.
Born December 26, 1933 in Flemington, she was a daughter of the late Eldon and Grace Spotts, Jr.
Patricia was the wife of Jack Swartz who preceded her in death in 1999.
While a student at Lock Haven High School, she was a member of the Drum and Bugle Corp of Flemington. She traveled with the group and even received awards for their performance in Philadelphia.
Accompanied by her favorite aunt, Aunt Faye Kinley, Patricia made her way to Harper Beauty School in Rochester, NY. Upon returning to the area, she was a beautician with Diane Stuempfle Beauty Salon.
After her husband's passing, Patricia became a host for Exchange Students at Lock Haven University.
