Joyce Swarzman Obituary, Death – Since we learned earlier this week that Dr. Swarzman had passed away, many of you have shown us an incredible amount of compassion and warmth, and we would like to use this opportunity to express our appreciation for your support and kindness. During this challenging time, many of you have been here for us to provide support and encouragement. We would want to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Swarzman for everything that he has done to contribute to the betterment of the community. We have all been changed in some way as a result of her absence, and now, as teachers and staff members at this school, we are working together to create a memorial that is worthy of her and the part she played in this institution.
We would like to express our gratitude to everyone who has taken the time to offer their condolences to us; we have received many of these messages, and they have come from a diverse range of individuals. A memorial service will be held in Myrtle Hill Memorial Park in honor of the departed on the following day, which is tomorrow, which is tomorrow, January 20, at ten o’clock in the morning. The ceremony is scheduled to take place at the cemetery as its designated location. In addition, a memorial service honoring the life of Dr. Swarzman will be held at Corbett Prep on March 5; additional information regarding this event will be made available in the not too distant future.
Instead of sending flowers, the family requests that donations be made in her memory to the Joyce Burick Swarzman Teacher Development Fund or the Team Gleason Foundation.
The establishment of the Teacher Development Fund at Corbett Prep was made possible as a direct result of the foresight and initiative demonstrated by Dr. Swarzman. This is primarily attributable to the fact that he saw its potential and directed its development from the beginning. The significant donation that she provided is evidence of how profoundly she cares about the expansion of educational possibilities. Her objective was to pave the way for “Teachers with a capital T” to have access to opportunities for professional development, and she wished for each and every student to have the chance to gain knowledge from a teacher who has been honored as teacher of the year. For her, these were the perfect set of circumstances. In addition, the family would like to take this opportunity to extend their gratitude to the Team Gleason Foundation, which has been an essential champion in the fight against ALS, for providing such great support all the way through this challenging time period.
