Born to Max Edward Schiwitz & Anna Marie Seeliger Schiwitz. Married Adolph Dayton Fuchs on June 8, 1940. Two children.


From the Lockhart Post-Register, Jan. 25, 2012:

Caroline Frances Schiwitz Fuchs, 93, a lifelong resident of Uhland, Texas, passed into her heavenly home on Jan. 21, 2012. We already miss her love, her laughter, and her späetzel.

Caroline was born in her parents' home in Neiderwald, Texas, on Oct. 23, 1918. She moved to Uhland, Texas, as an infant, where she and her younger sister, Gladys, were raised by their parents Max Edward Schiwitz and Anna Marie Seeliger Schiwitz.

Caroline attended Carl Weigand School in Uhland. Upon high school graduation she left Uhland to attend Texas Lutheran College, a junior college, in Seguin, for two years. She continued her education at Southwest Texas State Teacher's College in San Marcos, where she graduated with a degree in Education.

She returned to Uhland and first taught in a one-room school that was dedicated to Spanish-speaking students, before teaching at Rogers Ranch School. During this time she also gave piano lessons.

In 1940 she was married to Adolph Dayton Fuchs, Jr. They celebrated 64 years of marriage prior to his death in 2004. They operated Uhland Mercantile Co. until their retirement in 1978. As an active member of St. John's Evangelical and Reformed Church, she served as church organist, taught Sunday school and belonged to the Women's Guild. She also served in the PTA and as a Trustee on the school board of the Kyle ISD. The joys in life were her family and dancing and traveling with A.D.

A loving mother, dedicated sister, caring aunt and great-aunt, proud grandmother and great-grandmother, Caroline is survived by her younger sister, Gladys Schiwitz Sorrells, of Uhland; her sister-in-law, Opal Louise Fuchs Schnelle, of Fredericksburg; her daughter, Diane Marie Fuchs Garonzik, and son-in-law, Lynn Alan Garonzik, of Dallas; and her daughter-in-law, Diana Berry Fuchs, of Houston. She is also survived by six grandchildren: Jill Ann Garonzik Kelley, of Dallas, Jennifer Lynne Garonzik Lynch and her husband, Jason Craig Lynch, of Amarillo, Mark Alan Garonzik and his wife, Melinda Jones Garonzik, of Amarillo, Dayton Alexander Danielle Fuchs of Pittsburg, N.H., Cody Marshall Fox and his wife, Brianna Trevino Fox, of Sugarland, and Brooke Suzann Fuchs, of Houston; eight great-grandchildren Robert Mark Kelley, Caroline Alexandria Kelley, Austin Craig Lynch, Aubree Nicole Turner-Garonzik and Audree Denae Turner-Garonzik, Colton Rylee Garonzik, Cody Mark Garonzik, and Caleb Alexander Fox; and many nieces and nephews.
