Hallye was born in Henderson County on April 30, 1912, to the late Charles and Ethel Johnson. Hallye graduated from Polytechnic High School in 1930 and received B.A. and M.A. degrees from Texas Christian University. She married Harry H. Schwier in 1934 and they lived together until his passing in 2001. Mrs. Schwier joined the United States Coast Guard in 1942 and served on active duty until the end of World War II. She received her commission in 1945 and served in the Coast Guard Reserve for another 25 years, retiring at the rank of commander in 1974. Hallye also worked in the public school system, first as a teacher and later as an administrator, serving as dean of girls at Handley Junior High School before she retired in 1974. She was a life member and active in both the Reserve Officers Association and the Military Order of World Wars. Concurrent with her teaching career and her military service and continuing for many years after, Mrs. Schwier also acquired and managed rental properties with her husband in Fort Worth. Hallye was a longtime active member of Polytechnic United Methodist Church and found great peace sitting in the sanctuary before service as the prelude music played. She was also active through the years in the Fort Worth Women's Club. Her passion for travel stayed with her all her life and she truly loved her annual trips abroad with other retired military officers, many of them lifelong friends. Survivors: Brother-in-law, Harrell Coggins; and great-nephews, Gary and Charles Coleman.
