Jane Brothers Swindell, 57, went home to be with Jesus and her Mama and Daddy on Saturday June 29, 2019. She was in Beacon Place Hospice in Greensboro surrounded by her family.
The daughter of the late Betty Thigpen Swindell and the late Marion Smith Swindell, she was born in Elizabeth City.
She is survived by her brother, Larry Swindell (Suzy) of Greensboro, her sisters: Sheron Barnard (Ronnie) of Chesapeake, Va., and Beth Williams (David) of Midlothian, Va., 7 nieces and nephews, 6 great-nieces and nephews, and many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
She followed God’s commandments of love. She truly loved “her” Jesus and she shared her love with everyone she met. Often as saying goodbye, it was followed by “I love you” and she really meant it. Occasionally in challenging moments, if one asked “Jane what am I going to do with you?” she would reply “Love me forever.” -And she will be.
She was a past participant in the Special Olympics North Carolina Games and was often a medal winner including several golds.
Jane loved popcorn – no she REALLY loved popcorn . . . and dollar bills.
The funeral will be 2:00pm Friday at Edenton United Methodist Church. Burial will follow at Cedarwood Cemetery in Hertford, NC. The family will receive friends from 12:30pm-1:30pm at the church.
