Fort Worth

Fort Worth, Texas - Mary Frances Ginsburg Antweil passed away Tuesday morning, November 21. She was 93.

Born in Fort Worth, Mary Frances was the daughter of George and Sarah Schuster Ginsburg. After graduating from R. L. Paschal High School and a year at the University of Texas at Austin, she and Alan Joel Antweil married and moved to Hobbs, New Mexico where they raised the three children, Julie, Barry and Mark.

A wonderful volunteer for so many organizations, Hobbs Public Library, the American Cancer Society, the Girls and Boys Scouts, and whenever any asked for help, she was willing. Lea County, New Mexico named her Pioneer Woman of the Year for all of her hard work and dedication to the community.

After Alan died in 1994, she returned to Fort Worth and jumped right into volunteering. She loved the arts and was a proud supporter of the Chamber Music, and the Fort Worth Symphony and Fort Worth Opera. She loved the Van Cliburn Competition, listening to every pianist and discussing each one with her friends, making notes in the program and picking the winners brought her so much joy!

Jewish Family Service was her favorite organization and very dear to her heart. She was so proud to serve on their board and of all the accomplishments and their growth through the years.

Playing Mah Jongh as often as possible and teaching anyone who wanted to learn was so exciting for her. She met so many wonderful new friends thru the game. Mary Frances had the greatest since of humor and loved to laugh. She truly cared about her friends, but nothing brought her more pleasure than her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Mary Frances will be missed by all who were fortunate to have her in their lives, but they will continue to share her stories and her laughter with everyone they love.

Her family would like to thank Comfort Keepers, Christina Weissenborn, Aundrea Davis, LaQuita Brown-Harmon, Unique Holloway, Phyllis Wiley and the staff, Jen and Kelly. They also thank Community Healthcare of Texas, Joy and Taryn. And a HUGE thank you for taking such great care of Muffie!

In addition to her children, Julie Silverman, Barry and Debbie Antweil and Mark and Susie Antweil, Mary Frances is survived by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Adam, Nikki, Ava and Scarlett Silverman, David, Shelley, Morris and Bailey Silverman, Justin Antweil and Alexa Antweil; as well as other family members and many friends.

Mary Frances was laid to rest privately next to her husband, Alan, in Ahavath Sholom Cemetery on Wednesday, November 22. A Celebration of Her Life will be held on a later date.

In lieu of flowers, consideration of contributions to the Carole Rogers Financial Assistance Fund Benefitting the Tarrant County Community, in her memory, is suggested.
