This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Claire Schwarz (née Douglas), 64, born on December 3, 1949 and passed away on January 29, 2014. We will remember her forever.

Claire Ann (Douglas) Schwarz passed away Wednesday, January 29, 2014, at age 64. Born in Flushing, New York, she grew up in Long Beach, New York, and Brigantine. She lived and raised her family in Brigantine and most recently lived in Atlantic City. Claire was a graduate of Atlantic Community College and the Harris School of Business, where she earned a medical assistant degree. Earlier in her career, she worked as a substitute teacher at the elementary and high school levels, and for several casinos as a pit clerk and slot attendant.

Claire was predeceased by her parents, Bernard Douglas and Elizabeth (Stiebel) Douglas. She is survived by her husband, Edward; her son Eric and his spouse Seth Bookey of South Plainfield; her son Frankie of Brigantine; and her friend Joseph McCourt of Atlantic City. She took great pride in her sons, who were the light of her life. She gained joy from caring for her birds, Charlie and Sam.

Claire had an amazing spirit and brought a smile and sense of optimism to all who knew her. She will be terribly missed by her family and friends.

Relatives and friends celebrated Claire’s life on Tuesday February 4, 2014, from 10 to 11 am, followed by a funeral service, at the Keates-Plum Funeral Home, 3112 Brigantine Ave, Brigantine. Claire is buried at Holy Cross Cemetery, Mays Landing, New Jersey.

Eric and Frankie, I am so sorry for your loss. I am so sad to hear than my BFF from so many years ago is gone. I was trying to find her somewhere like FB and web searches and found nothing. I have so many wonderful memories of Claire and I going to the beach everyday. Of course Claire's mom wouldn't let her go until after 2pm and I now am so glad she restricted us. At that time we didn't have sunscreens. Every waking hour we were together, Claire on 3rd Street me on 4th Street with our backyards facing each other. It was a magical time for me as I needed and loved our friendship. This is a beautiful tribute to a beautiful person that I will never forget.

Eric and Frankie: I am so sorry about the loss of your mother. It is so difficult to lose someone who has guided you on your path of life. Your Mom was always so proud when I told her of all of your accomplishments in my class. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
