Ella M. Schwarzenberg, 92, Sunpapers clerk

April 10, 2004

Ella M. Schwarzenberg, a former Sunpapers circulation clerk, died of sepsis Monday at Harbor Hospital. She was 92.

She was born Ella Mae Lulie in Baltimore and raised on Winder Street. She attended Southern High School until leaving after her freshman year to help support her family.

Mrs. Schwarzenberg worked as a candy maker at Dockman's Candy, and during World War II was employed by the Linen Thread Co., which manufactured camouflage cloth.

She was married for 28 years to William T. Schwarzenberg, a Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. gas fitter who died in 1963.

She joined the circulation department of the Sunpapers, working there for 11 years until retiring in 1976.

Mrs. Schwarzenberg was a longtime resident of Battery Avenue, where she lived until moving to Burwood Gardens, a Glen Burnie senior citizen housing facility several years ago.

She was a member of the Glen Burnie Moose, Brooklyn Boosters and the Stony Creek Democratic Club. She also was a member of the old Patterson United Methodist Church.

She was an avid dancer and traveler.

"She really loved life and was really a happy person. She never gossiped and people just loved her," said her daughter, Joan L. Hammerer of Palm Harbor, Fla.

Services were held Thursday.

In addition to her daughter, Mrs. Schwarzenberg is survived by a son, Philip T. Schwarzenberg of Glen Burnie; five grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren. Another son, William J. Schwarzenberg, died in 2000.
