Mrs. Marion Schneeweiss Bartlett


Mrs. Marion Schneeweiss Bartlett, age 94, passed away in Onancock on Dec. 16, 2018. A longtime resident of Absecon, N.J., Mrs. Bartlett and her husband, Bud, moved to the Eastern Shore of Virginia in the late 1980’s after selling the family business, Bartlett Chevrolet, in Absecon, N.J. They lived in Machipongo (Vaucluse Shores) and Onancock (The Hermitage Eastern Shore).

Mrs. Bartlett was born in Pleasantville, N.J., on April 21, 1924. She graduated from Pleasantville High School in 1941 and went on to earn her Bachelor of Education degree from Maryville College in Maryville, Tenn. She taught home economics in both Maryland and New Jersey. She served as president on the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Atlantic County Home Economics Advisory Board and was a past president of the Absecon Garden Club.

She was predeceased by her husband of 49 years, Ralph “Bud” Bartlett; her parents, Henry and Marie Schneeweiss; and her five siblings, Gertrude Starkey, Emma Beckman, Henry Schneeweiss, William Schneeweiss, and Ruth Buzby. She is survived by her stepdaughter, Kim Bartlett Natwig and husband, Gary, of Austin, Texas; her granddaughter, Britta Natwig Hinze and husband, Scott, and great-grandchildren, Brock and Baxter Hinze, of Fort Worth, Texas; her grandson, Kirk Natwig and wife, Jessica, of Austin, Texas; and numerous nieces and nephews throughout the United States and abroad.

Planning the next wonderful trip was always a priority. A world traveler, she had wonderful stories about trips taken over the years with her husband, Bud. She was a stellar leader, master gardener, awesome cook, naturalist and amateur birder, accomplished artist, avid reader, excellent needle worker, seamstress, hand-quilter, and crafter.

She was a wonderful stepmother, grandmother, teacher, and friend. She will be missed by everyone she knew. As her husband, Bud, would say, “She was a Peach of a Teach!”

Mrs. Bartlett had been a member of Reformation Lutheran Church in Absecon, N.J., Hungars Episcopal Church in Machipongo, and Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Onancock.

A Memorial Service will be held at Commonwealth Senior Living (formerly The Hermitage) on Feb. 2, 2019, at 2 p.m., with the Revs. Berkley Ford and Robert Fletcher officiating.
