Rose Ann Schwartzer went home to the Lord on the night of June 8th, 2021, after a long illness.Rose Ann was born in David City, Nebraska, on Sept 5th, 1933, to Joe and Anna (Hein) Vanek. The family moved to Columbus, Nebraska, and that is where mom grew up. She attended St. Bonaventure grade school and graduated from the St. Bonaventure High School in 1951. On April 23rd, 1952, Rose Ann was united in marriage to John T. Schwartzer at St. Bonaventure Catholic Church. From this union they had six children; Christal, John Jr, Joseph, Douglas, Linda and Renee. Mom lived for her children, they were her life. No matter how old her children got, they always came first; mom was forever selfless when it came to her children's needs.Mom worked for Becton-Dickinson in Columbus, retiring after 20 years when the family relocated to Livingston, MT, in 1980. She was a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church. Some of our best memories were times we spent camping with our neighbors and their family. There was never a dull moment on these excursions. She also looked forward to going to visit Peggy and her family on Memorial Day weekends, lifelong best friends, now united with the Lord.Rose Ann is survived by her brother David L. (Patty) Vanek of Hood River, Oregon; daughters, Christal Schwartzer of Livingston, and Linda (Johnny) Jeffrey of Aurora, Nebraska; sons Douglas (Charlotte) Schwartzer, and Joseph (Wanda) Schwartzer, of Livingston; and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.She was preceded in death by her husband of 38 years, John; a son, John Jr; a daughter, Renee; her parents; and six brothers and sisters. In accordance with Rose Ann's wishes, there will be no services, and private interment will take place at a later date. Franzen-Davis Funeral Home and Crematory has been entrusted with arrangements.
