Swartz, Edith  
Edith Fruman Swartz Born March 4th, 1921, Edith grew up in Dorchester and Mattapan, before moving over to Sharon, MA in 1955, to raise her two sons, Gordon and Gerald Swartz. She spent her last 4 years in Weston, Florida, were she passed in her home on April 16th, 2015. One of eight children, Edith was the seventh daughter and an identical twin. Her husband Robert fondly remembers visiting Edith's home as the equivalent of going to a sorority meeting. Edith and her twin sister shared a special bond. When they were girls, the two were very beautiful, and were interviewed to join the Radio City Music Hall Rockets. Edith is survived by her husband, Robert, whom she was happily married for 72 years. She and Robert were avid golfers. In 1965, they were written up in Golf Magazine for winning the Men's and Women's Club Championship, in the same year, at Easton Country club. Always in each other's company, Robert and Edith could be found visiting many of the world's great courses. Her husband Robert laments, that she had her first hole in one before he did. Later in her life, Edith was happiest when playing Mahjong with her close friends. Always energetic and engaging, she made the game a happy experience for all those involved. She enjoyed good food, but got the most joy from those she dined with. Edith had a giving spirit, and nobody ever left her home empty handed, often getting more than they could ever need or carry. Her favorite activity was to hand those she met "lucky dollars," which she folded in just the right way to give the recipients good luck in their future endeavors. As she placed her lucky dollar in the hand of her friends, she would say, "make a wish and this is forever." Many residents of both Sharon, MA, and Weston. Fl, will attest to the good fortune the dollars brought to them. Edith will be remembered fondly by those she touched, and will be forever in the hearts of those she leaves behind. She is survived by her husband Robert, her two sons, Gordon and Gerald, her daughter-in-law Deborah, and her grandsons, Daniel and Byron.
