Mary Elizabeth Swaney, 80, died July 10, 2014.
Mary was the loving, faithful wife of 61 years to Larry Swaney, and the beloved mother of April Merzweiler (Michael) and Shawn Swaney. She cherished her role as grandmother to Alliree Zushin (Ben), Jeremy and Emily Merzweiler, Erin and Stephen Swaney.
Sewing, gardening and art were just a few of her interests in life, but nothing compared to her love and enthusiasm she had for her family. Mary will always be remembered and missed.
A graveside service will be held 1 p.m. today at Eastlawn Cemetery, Marietta.
