Marilyn Jean Schwanz-Brown

April 21, 1963 – July 17, 2020

Marilyn Jean Schwanz Brown left us to be free on July 17, 2020. Marilyn was a beloved mother, sister, and friend. She was born in Seguin, Texas, to Roland Schwanz and Mary Louise Gohlke Schwanz. She is preceded in death by her mother Mary. She is survived by her father Roland; daughter Megan and son-in-law Ben; sisters Kathy and husband Danny, Betty Oneal and husband David, Carol Blades and husband Steve; nieces and nephews Justin Oneal, Stephanie Brown, Casey Leal, and Tiffany Carter as well as Tiffany’s children Aerial, Paisley, and Tanner.

Marilyn graduated from Seguin High School in 1980/81 and later married John W Brown, Jr. They were blessed with a beautiful daughter, Megan Brown Sterner; Marilyn was so proud of her daughter. She loved spending time with family, camping, playing cards and dominoes, getting her mother-in-law Bea riled for sport, listening to music, bargain hunting, and was an avid reader. She was locally famous for her epic Christmas light displays.

We all remember Marilyn as a tenacious, caring, firecracker personality. Details regarding her Celebration of Life Wake will be forthcoming. Memorial contributions can be made in her name to the Seguin Public Library.

  1. She did love irritating my momma but all in good fun. They would share Harlequin romance novels all the time. She truly loved her family and will be missed.


    1. I remember Marilyn not only for Christmas lights but for the wrapping of presents with duct tape. We could always count on a laugh trying to get them open .

      Prayers for the family …..


  2. This beautiful soul had fire in her veins. She was beautiful, fun, and hilarious. I loved visiting her with my daughter and hearing all about her neighbors with her no filter, not a care in the world attitude. My favorite memory cannot be shared here due to its nature but I love this woman for her take on life and how she was so accepting of me. She will be sorely missed


  3. My prayers are with you and your family
    Even though we are not close family but we’re cousin
    Rip Marilyn going to miss u


  4. She was a sweet person .. She took my boys under her wings .. She invited them over to swim with Megan.. RIP sweet cousin… πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™


  5. This woman will be missed sorely, she had such a great sense of humor and she was like a second mother to me. She was always so straight forward and fun to be around. It’s hard knowing she’s gone.
