JANET COOPER SCHWARTZ: Daughter of the late Nettie and Meyer Rosenfeld. Mother of Randi (Anthony) Cost and Dayna Spitz. Grandmother of Max and Eli Gelernter, and loving partner of David Schnitzer, passed away suddenly on December 11th, 2020 in Boyton Beach, FL at the age of 77. Janet was an overflowing source of love and light to her family throughout her life. Janet was born and raised in Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh, where her and Sam Spitz raised their daughters. She worked proudly alongside her mother, Nettie, as they passionately co-owned Cooper Studio, a wedding photography business, in the heart of Squirrel Hill. Janet was a fiercely independent woman, a loyal mother and grandmother— traits that she instilled in her daughters and grandsons. Janet will be reunited with many loved ones, including her mother and late husband, Edward Schwartz. Our Mother, Grandmother and Friend will be missed and remembered for her infectious laughter, zest for life and her ability to love us all unconditionally. Services and Interment Private. Donations in her honor can be sent to the Jewish Family and Community Services of Pittsburgh (The family prefers the donations go specifically to the Squirrel Hill Food Pantry).
