Morganna J. Schwing

Dec. 1, 1946 - Nov. 22, 2020


Morganna J. Schwing, 73, residing in South Bend, IN passed away unexpectedly at 10:00 a.m. Sunday, November 22, 2020 at Memorial Hospital of South Bend.

She was born December 1, 1946 in Oakland City, IN, a daughter of the late Donald E. & Marjorie (Loveless) Snyder, and has lived in the South Bend area since 1969.

On September 4, 1965 in Terre Haute, IN, Morganna was united in marriage to Donald Lee Schwing who survives. Along with Don, the love of her life, she is survived by her daughter, Karen A. & Bill Palmateer of Atlanta, GA; her son, Mark A. & Amber Schwing of South Bend; and five grandchildren who were the light of her life, Adam J. Palmateer, Luke W. Palmateer, Brandon D. Schwing, Bryce C. Schwing, and Brooke J. Schwing. She is also survived by her brother, D. Wesley Snyder of Jasper, AL. She was preceded in death by an infant daughter, Carol Joanne Schwing.

Mrs. Schwing retired in 2007 from Penn-Harris-Madison School Corp., as a Social Studies Teacher at Grissom Middle School. She was an active member of Trinity Evangelical Free Church and involved in many ministries of the church, and was a member of the Tuesday morning Bible Study Fellowship. Morganna attended Indiana State University, received her BA from Bethel College, and an MA in Elementary Education from Indiana University of South Bend. She was a member of National Education Association, and Indiana State Teachers Association. Morganna loved to travel and play games, especially euchre. She never missed attending and supporting her grandchildren's sporting and academic events. She was always looking for ways she could help someone else, or was asking how she could pray for you.
