Gwendolyn M. SWIFT Obituary
Aug. 31, 1915 - July 20, 2018Gwen Swift was peacefully called home by the Lord.. She was born in Richmond, Indiana, raised in Decatur, Il. by her parents, Claude and Vivian Deichman. Gwen had outlived her younger sister, Sarah and brother, Leonard. She married Ira W. Swift in 1936 then later moved to West Covina, Calif. in 1952. Their bond was an inspiration to their children until Ira's passing in 1992. Gwen is survived by her children, Marilyn Goodnight, of Arizona, Jerry Swift of California, Patricia Allred of Texas and Debbie Zahoran of Arizona. Gwen was blessed with 7 grandchildren, 18 great grandchildren and 12 great-great grandchildren. Gwen led a very active life as a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in West Covina. She helped with Braille for the blind, worked as a "Petal Pusher" on floats for the Rose Parade, oversaw the prayer chain and helped with set up of weddings and funerals. In 2009 Gwen moved to Wildomar, Calif. where she continued making new friends and taking advantage of the activities. In Gwen's quiet way, she displayed an awesome love for her children and love for her Lord and Savior. In the process she has passed on this Christian heritage to all her children and extended family. We will forever be indebted to her. Please sign the guestbook at legacy.com/obituaries/sgvtribune. WL00169460-image-1.jpg
