Lois A. Swinford Obituary
Lois A. Swinford, aged 94, passed away peacefully on May 10, 2017 at Casa Arena Blanca, following a long battle with Dementia. Lois was born July 16, 1922 in Gran Quivira, New Mexico, the daughter of Robert Earl Jackson and Maggie Pearl Corley Jackson.

On November 30, 1941, Lois married the love of her life, Frankie B. Swinford and enjoyed 55 loving years together. In addition to raising their three children, she and her husband ran a self-employed manufactured housing business for which she kept the books. She always enjoyed a house full of family, friends, and strangers for which strangers did not get to keep that status for very long. Any who met her, quickly became part of her family.

Lois was preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Maggie Jackson; husband, Frank Swinford; brother, Thomas Howard Jackson; sister, Marry Earlean Rutherford; son-in-law, Robert (Bobby) Tekell; daughter-in-law, Fae Swinford; and granddaughter, Venetia Dawn Davison.

Lois is survived by her brother, Phillip Jackson; son, David Swinford; daughter, Susan Tekell; and son, Paul (Janelle) Swinford. She had four grandchildren, three great grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild. She is also survived by a multitude of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Visitation will be held from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm today, Friday, May 12, 2017 at Alamogordo Funeral Home, 2301 E First Street in Alamogordo.

A graveside service will be held at 2:00 pm today, Friday, May 12, 2017 at the Monte Vista Cemetery, 1590 E First Street in Alamogordo with Pastor Billy Tucker officiating.
