Mary Carmelita Frazier was born on March 6, 1934 in Topeka, KS, the daughter of Thomas R. and Helen (DeKraul) Frazier. She was raised and received her education in Topeka, graduating from Hayden High School in 1953. Mary attended business school before her marriage to Duaine H. Schwieso on September 1, 1956 at Assumption Catholic Church in Topeka. Upon marrying a military husband, they traveled and lived in a few places before settling in Wind Lake, WI to raise their 3 sons. Mary worked various small jobs. In 1985, they moved to Chili, WI and made that their permanent home for the last 36 years. She worked for a time at Figi's in Marshfield, and then later at the Marshfield Clinic until her retirement in 1996. After retiring, they traveled the U.S. in their RV, which Mary truly enjoyed. Their biggest RV experience was spending 3 months in Australia and New Zealand. They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 2006 with a large family gathering.
She was a fun-loving and kind person, and proved to be a resilient wife and mother.
