Laura Schwartz Obituary
Born in New York to Russian Jewish immigrant parents, Laura Posoff grew up during the depression in the Brighton Beach neighborhood of Brooklyn and spent much of her childhood at nearby Coney Island. After the war she married Buz Schwartz and they soon started a family. By the mid-Fifties they had joined the post war migration to California, moving to Los Angeles barely a year before the Brooklyn Dodgers.
They built an active life in California. For over 15 years Laura was Buz’s partner in a string of entrepreneurial ventures. She then came back to the family business as Controller and partner to son Martin after divorcing Buz at the age of 55. Laura would remain active at Minilec Service for the next 30 years.
Laura enjoyed travel, especially the many trips she made to New York to catch all the latest Broadway shows. Most weekends would find her at the movies with her pals or at one of the many venues to which she had season tickets. Loving mother, aunt, mentor and friend. She is survived by her daughter Ronni, son Martin (Melrose) and numerous nieces and nephews. Laura will be missed by all.
