Agnes E. Swanson, age 93, a former Westwood Dr. resident, died Wednesday morning, May 24th, 2017, at Saybrook Landing where our dear Mother is now resting in her heavenly home.
She was born Dec. 13, 1923, in Cleveland, Ohio, the daughter of John and Elsie (Ostrom) Adamson. She married Leslie P. Swanson on June 14, 1947, in Ashtabula.
She was a member of Faith Lutheran Church where she had been Luther League Advisor and worked in the church food pantry and sang in the church choir.
She and her husband wintered many years in Scottsdale, Ariz., with her daughter Carolyn and her family. She loved baking for her family and for friends that were ill or needing some comfort and also enjoyed knitting baby sweaters and giving them away.
She was a caregiver for several families and also volunteered at the Ashtabula General Hospital. When her daughters were young she was also a Girl Scout Leader.
Surviving her are her three daughters, Sharon L. (Bill) Shinskey and Marilyn R. (Jim) Onion, both of Ashtabula and Carolyn A. (Mark) Linderman of Scottsdale, Ariz.; and two granddaughters, Katelyn Linderman and Kimberly (Tyler) Crist, both in Scottsdale.
She is now joined with her precious husband, Leslie, who preceded her on March 9, 2017, and by a brother, John Adamson Jr., and her parents.
A Memorial Service will be Monday, June 5th, at 4 p.m. at Faith Lutheran Church, 504 Lake Ave., Ashtabula, with the Rev. James Brandis officiating.
Memorial contributions may be directed to Faith Lutheran Church, 504 Lake Ave., Ashtabula, Ohio 44004.
The family would like to extend a grateful appreciation to Saybrook Landing for the exceptional care they have given to both their mother and father as residence there.
