E. Joy Schwartz Obituary
Age 83, of Riverside, California, passed away on January 2, 2018, after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Joy was born in Los Angeles on August 17, 1934 to Floyd Parker and Mary Elizabeth Klock. Joy was an artist and worked with many mediums; for 12 years she owned Talk of the Town Ceramics and taught others how to create beautiful ceramic pieces.
Joy was a devoted lover of animals, particularly concerned over the welfare of kitty cats, and over the years she provided a safe haven for many of them. She loved gardening and had hundreds of plants and several fruit trees. She adored hummingbirds and fed pretty much every one of them in Riverside County.
Joy is survived by her children and their spouses, Rodonna Van Pelt, Tamara Schwartz (Craig), Terry Hobson (Dan), Wally Schwartz (Donna), and Debbie Seville (Frank). Joy was blessed with 17 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, the love of her life, Edward H. Schwartz, her son Rick Schwartz, her sister Dorothy (Parker) Plunkett and her granddaughter Tiffany (Hobson) Ryan.
A memorial service will be held on Monday, January 15, 2018 at 12:00pm at Acheson & Graham Garden of Prayer, 7944 Magnolia Ave, Riverside, CA. A reception will immediately follow the service and directions will be provided. Interment will be Tuesday, January 16, 2018 at 1:00pm at Olivewood Memorial Park, 2200 Central Avenue, Riverside, CA.
