Memorial Services for Earl M. Schwemm, 95, will be held Saturday, December 7, at 11 am, at the Barrington United Methodist Church and at 2 p.m. at the Elliott Chapel on the grounds of the Presbyterian Home in Evanston, IL. A native of Barrington, Mr. Schwemm died Nov. 15, 1996 at the Presbyterian Home.

Mr. Schwemm was the former manager of the Chicago agency of Great-West Life Assurance Co. of Canada. He ran the agency for 25 years, until his retirement in December 1961.

Mr. Schwemm lived in Barrington almost all of his life and was an active civic leader, including nine years on the high school board of education, three as president, and seven years of the Barrington Village Board.

His grandfather, Gustav Meyer, opened a cabinet-making shop in Barrington just after the Civil War, and his father, John, had a livery barn in downtown Barrington until after World War II. His mother, Gertrude, was a prime mover of the library, and wrote the history of the Methodist Church in 1940.
