Kate was a loving, loyal and kind wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was a Godly woman who loved Jesus since she was six years old. Her family was her pride and joy and she especially loved being Gramma. She cherished spending time with her grandkids, teaching them the Bible using techniques that were fun, innovative and creative. She always kept arts and crafts ready in Gramma's hobby room. She very much enjoyed decorating her home with vibrant colors and an eclectic style, using warm and welcoming tones. She thoroughly looked forward to planning and hosting, with much gusto, for the whole family at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Kate was humble, modest and yet confident in who she was. Her faith defined her. She was an active and involved member of Rock Hill Bible Fellowship Church and was a teacher with CEF (Child Evangelism Fellowship) Ministry in their afterschool program. She attended Asbury College in Wilmore, Ky. and graduated from Winthrop University. She was both a private and public school teacher for many years. She had a real passion for seeing children learn, especially in preparation for life, and most especially so as to make the Bible come alive for children.
Kate is survived by her husband, Olin D. Grant; seven children, Kim (Hal) Mitchell, Preston Grant, Angela (Eric) Stanley, Travis (Meredith) Swaim, Andrew Swaim, Josh (Patricia) Swaim and Tara (Greg) Schultz; her 22 grandchildren, Brook Lossman-Grant, Allie Mitchell, Matthew Stanley, Joshua Swaim, McCager Mitchell, Sarah Stanley, Elizabeth Swaim, McKenzie Grubb, Banks Mitchell, Micah Stanley, Peyton Grubb, Elijah Stanley, Nathaniel Swaim, Keegan Grubb, Sophie Stanley, Zoe Grubb, Josiah Stanley, Ellie Stanley, Abby Swaim, Emmy Swaim, Adalyn Schultz and Landon Schultz; and one great-grandchild, Carter Wilson.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Floyd and Myrtella Swem.
