Mary Swain

October 2, 1926 — August 14, 2020

Mary Swain, age 93 of Sheridan, passed away on Friday, August 14, 2020 in Greenville at Spectrum Health United Hospital.

Mary was a long-time employee of the Ionia Pubic School system working in the cafeteria and food services. When she wasn't working, Mary loved to crochet, read books, and tend to her flower garden. She and her husband traveled all over the country, but their favorite place to go was California. Mary was a wonderful and loving mother whose contributions to this world made it a better place.
