Doris Jean Zwick, 95, of Ft. Wayne began her heavenly journey, Sunday, Oct. 21st. She had been a resident at Lutheran Life Village, Pine Valley since 2015 receiving loving and gracious care from their staff. She was a member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church. Born August 23, 1923, she was the only daughter of the late Edward Killian and Bertha (Tonkel) Killian. Her love of school began at Franklin Elementary, which stayed dear to her heart throughout her life. She was the beloved wife of the late Richard Lawrence Zwick. Together they joyfully raised a family and co-owned two family businesses: The Hoosier Tavern (Fairfield Ave.) and the Killian Fireworks Company, also of Ft. Wayne. After his early death in 1973, she fell upon her strong faith to continue in their shared commitment to family, friends, and community. With courageous willingness, she took her then young son, Timothy, on cross country trips to visit his sisters on the west coast, camping, hiking and backpacking along the way. Her life has been a living example in the gift of giving to others and the importance of nourishing lifetime friendships. Her large circle of Bridge playing partners continued for over 45 years. Her caring phone calls and card-sending habits to commemorate important days, sad and happy, in her family and friends' lives are legendary to those of us who received those calls and cards. She is survived by her children, Tana Zwick McDuffie, of Kurtistown, Hawaii; Terri (Wes Bryan) Zwick of Long Beach, CA; Tracee Zwick of Ft. Wayne and Timothy R.L. Zwick (Robin) of Pierceton, IN; 8 grandchildren and 3 great-granddaughters. Funeral Service will be at D.O. McComb and Sons Lakeside Park – 1140 Lake Ave Wednesday October 24, 2018 1 pm with calling two hours prior. Memorials Worship Anew- Lutheran Ministries Media.
