Frazier Janey Howie Swift

On Friday, November 20, 2020, Frazier Janey Howie Swift, survived by her loving husband David D. Swift Sr, daughter of Frazier and Doug Howie, and sister of Thomas O'Ferrall Howie, Sr., went to Heaven at the age of 64. She is survived by her two wonderful step-children, Ida Ross Hicks (Brad) and David D. Swift, Jr. (Laurie), five beautiful grandchildren, and two loving nephews, Griffith Howie and Thomas Howie, Jr.

Janey was born on February 15, 1956 in New Orleans, Louisiana. She was crowned Bicentennial Queen of Fiesta of Five Flags 1976. She received her Bachelor's in Elementary Education from the University of South Alabama, where she became a sister of the Kappa Delta Sorority. She was an active member of Merry Makers in Pensacola Florida.

Janey was a light in every room in which she walked; She was a fireball in the most perfect way. Her smile and laugh were both contagious. She was compassionate, energetic, and had immense enthusiasm for life. She leaves a legacy of a strong, smart and beautiful soul. Her love for her family was pure and will forever run deep within our hearts. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to the Church of the Advent or any favorite charity. A private family service will be held at The Church of the Advent, Lillian, Alabama.

Taken too soon... Janie, you were a good friend. Your smile lit up a room and all that knew you, loved you. I can't believe you have left us so soon. I will miss you...

I’ve known Janey since Episcopal Day School. She was always happy and smiling. We remained fiends through high school. Reunited at a hs reunion and had great talk about our lives. I am saddened. Prayers to Janey’s family.

Janie was a couple of years ahead of me at Liberal Arts, but I. Certainly remember her. I had a minor crush on her too. RIP.

My sincere condolences to the Howie and Swift families, and to the Ferguson family – I am so sorry for your loss. Beth Ferguson McLaughlin is my connection to Janey, having spent more than a few times together while Janey lived in Georgia. I remember her zest for life and exquisite taste in fashion and decorating. A couple of special memories are of the three of us antiquing in Crabapple and volunteering for Habitat for Humanity.

May you find peace and comfort from those of us reaching out to you during this difficult time. She was a very special lady and you are in my prayers.

Rest now, Janey - until we meet again.
