Virginia Marie Schwarzmann

March 13, 1952 – March 30, 2023


Virginia (Ginger) Marie Schwarzmann, 71, of Glenolden, Pa. passed away peacefully, surrounded by family on March 30, 2023. Ginger was the daughter of the late Rosalie K. Schwarzmann and Henry F. M. Schwarzmann. Ginger was the sister to the late Ellen Schwarzmann as well.

Ginger started her life in West Philadelphia on the streets of 52nd and Osage and eventually moved to Darby, Pa. where she grew up as a child and then graduated from Darby-Colwyn High School in 1969. Ginger was a beloved mother to Ericka (Bill) Schneider and Melanie (Sean Gallagher) Schwarzmann. She was a cherished grandmother to Kyle Weber. Ginger is survived by her siblings Rhoda (Bill) Pyle and her brother Harry (Lynne) Schwarzmann. She also has many loving nieces and nephews that she adored.

Ginger enjoyed the simple things in life: good people, good times, and great music. She loved spending time with her friends and family. One of her many jobs was bartending so getting ready for parties and festive times was right up her alley. She never missed a Phillies game or prepping a football pool or two for an Eagles game. She loved the music from her time; the 60’s and 70’s, especially Janis Joplin, The Beatles, and Elvis Presley.

By far though, the greatest achievement of her life was that of being a great Mother… She was loving, attentive, hard-working, and always had her daughters’ best interests at heart. She would go to the ends of the earth for her girls. She always made sure her girls were well taken care of. Her girls will always remember…. It was always just the three of us.

Relatives and Friends are invited to her Visitation from 5pm to 7pm on Thursday, April 6, 2023, at Griffith Funeral Chapel, Inc. Life Celebration to follow Visitation.
