Obituary

Charlotte O. Swann, 78, of Elkhart, passed away at home on Tuesday, February 8, 2022.

Charlotte was born January 14, 1944 in Salem, KY to the late Eugene and Thelma (May) Farris.  She was also preceded in death by a sister, Monda Tyler and a brother, Eugene Farris Jr.

On July 25, 1960, Charlotte married Virgil H. Swann Sr. in Elkhart.  He survives along with a daughter, Donna J. (Douglas) Martin and a son, Virgil (Lisa) Swann Jr. both of Elkhart; seven grandchildren: Blair (Nathan) Gingerich, Lindsey Seitz, Garrett Kavas, Lauren (Ben) Aikins, Morgan (Kody) Lowery, Dalton (Reina) Swann, Tanner Jerles; fifteen great grandchildren and two sisters, Brenda Russo of Elkhart and Cynthia (Presley) Hunter of Odessa, TX.

Charlotte spent the majority of her life as a homemaker raising her family and doing what she enjoyed, cooking/baking and cleaning.  She also worked for many years as an LPN in the OB/GYN department at Elkhart General Hospital and at DeBoni’s Bakery. Later, she operated her own cleaning service and eventually retired.    She and her husband attended Cornerstone Baptist Church.  Together they loved traveling to see relatives and friends afar.  Charlotte enjoyed reminiscing and had a special knack for remembering details with dates and times.  Above all else, she had great love for her family with extra attention given to her grandchildren.
