Mary Jo Schwartz of Lakeside Park, KY, passed away on December 20, 2019 at the age of 92. This classy, darling lady was our beloved Mother known to our special family as “Jomama”. Our Mother ‘s dynamic strength and spunk shown through,  overcoming many obstacles, surviving and thriving under many challenges and crosses she had carried so courageously throughout her inspirational life. Jo was a strong Christian having lived her Roman Catholic faith spiritually supported so lovingly by very special Jesuit Fathers from St. Francis Xavier Church Cincinnati. My Mom and I had also previously attended Mother of God Church in Covington, KY. Jo was a proud graduate from the Class of 1945 Saint Henry High School in Erlanger, KY. She had attended St. Mary Cathedral School in Covington then St. Paul Grade School in Florence, KY. Mary Jo had retired in 1986 from the Small Business Administration with the Federal Government as an Administrative Officer and previously as an Executive Secretary for a previous brokerage firm. Her fortitude and dedication to support our family and home kept us together despite hardships and strife. Mom derived joy from gardening and particularly baking and cooking for her loved ones. My Mom was an avid reader setting positive examples having read to us as children. Jo enjoyed listening to NPR or watching PBS including recent years we were so blessed to have spent together particularly this past decade. Jo’s spirited personality and endearing smile will be missed dearly. She is survived by her sons, Terrence (“Ty”) Joseph Scott, James Jeffrey (Le Ann) Scott; step-children, Ed Schwartz, Deacon Nick ( Debby) Schwartz, Drs. Jim (Erin) Schwartz, and Mary Jo Schwartz; grandchildren; Jamie Lee (Roy) Beauchamp and Terrence (“Ty”) Jeffrey Scott; great-grandson, Noah James Beauchamp and many nieces and nephews and friends. Mary Jo joins loving family members in Heaven; Parents : Joseph Anthony & Effie Mae Lohre & Mom’s father’s sister Mary Monica Lohre; husband James Louis Scott & all of his brothers and sisters, and second husband, her precious Ralph Joseph Schwartz; sons, Mark Collins and Jason Lee Scott; sisters, Elizabeth Jeanne Zimmer, Judith Ann Lohre; brother, Terry Joseph Lohre (Mary Ann) ; & step-son Ralph Schwartz Jr., & countless beloved cousins and many friends who were often an integral part of her beautiful life and ours. One of Mom’s favorite prayers is the Suscipe by Saint Ignatius of Loyola.  Mary Jo (nee Lohre) Scott Schwartz is a SAINT!  Welcome Home Mom +.
