Carol Silbert Schwartz passed away, surrounded by her loving family on Sunday, August 20, 2023, after a several months’ long battle with cancer.
Born to Helen & Daniel “Nick” Silbert in Augusta, GA on September 24,1953,
Carol married her devoted husband, Michael in 1977, spending time in Jacksonville, FL and Atlanta, GA before moving north to Rockaway, NJ and starting a family and ultimately settling in New Windsor, where she worked as Office Manager at B. Reilly Wealth Management (formerly Copans & Company) for 38 years. Carol remained a proud southerner at heart, even while spending most of her adult life in the Northeast.
Carol loved spending time with her family, be it in person visits, or long phone conversations with her sister and best friend, JoEllen. She cherished her time with her children, Harris & Stacy, and adored her time with and showing off her Granddaughters, Alexa & Julianna.
Her smile and laughter were infectious, and could bring joy to any room she entered. She was loved by all that knew her and will be missed tremendously.
Carol is survived by her husband, Michael of New Windsor, son Harris (Amy) of Pittsburgh, PA, daughter Stacy of Fernandina Beach, FL, granddaughters Alexa & Julianna of Pittsburgh, PA, sister JoEllen (Kenneth) Copans of New Windsor, and nephews Richard (Vanessa) Copans of Chicago, IL and Mark Copans of Newburgh along with their children and a large extended family.
