Graveside services for Mary Anderson Swain will be held Thursday at 11:00 a.m. at Magnolia Cemetery with Dr. Paul Allen officiating. Webb Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
Mrs. Swain, 89, of Meridian, died Friday, August 27, 2021, at Brookdale Senior Living. She and her husband Neill did the accounting at WTOK for many years. She attended East End Methodist Church until its closure. Druid Hills United Methodist Church then became her new church home. She attended the city's exercise class for many years, also. She loved to travel and to eat Blue Bell ice cream. In recent years, Mary lived at home with the special help of Bernice Johnson, Annie Grace, and Pam Allen Burns. In April of this year, she moved into the Clare Bridge wing of Brookdale. The family would like to thank Ginger, the nurses, and the associates of Brookdale for their untiring care of Mary during a hard time in her life. The family would also like to thank the nurses--especially Amy Martin--of Quality Hospice for caring for Mary at the end of her life. Mary had many good friends and was a good friend to many people. She will be sorely missed by all.
She was preceded in death by her husband Neill Swain and her parents Pascal and Lucille Anderson.
