Born in Lower Paxton Township on January 4, 1931, she was the daughter of the late Cecil and Mary Heisey Via.

She was a member of the First United Methodist Church, Hershey, and its Faith Circle United Methodist Women; and attended Stoverdale United Methodist Church. She was also a member of the Areba Club.

In addition to her parents, Verna was preceded in death by her husband, Robert F. Schwartz. A daughter, Linda Carnline, of Marshall TX, passed away unexpectedly this past Friday, January 3, 2020.

Verna is survived by two sons, Stephen Schwartz and David Schwartz husband of Kathy both of Hershey; a daughter, Laurie Hover wife of Scott of Hershey; a sister, Ethel Schwartz of Phillipsburg, GA; five grandchildren, Robert “Bobby” Carnline husband of Brandy of Plano, TX, and Jennifer Stafford wife of Matthew, David Schwartz, Alexander Hover and Sydney Hover all of Hershey; and three great grandsons, Austin and Andrew Carnline of Plano, TX, and Ryan Stafford of Hershey.

A celebration of Verna’s life will be held Saturday, January 11, 2020 at 11 AM in the First United Methodist Church, 64 West Chocolate Avenue, Hershey, with The Rev. Clyde H.
