Annaliza Ruth Swain passed away July 15, 2019 at the age of 87 from congestive heart failure. She was born on December 2, 1931 in Brooklyn, New York to Gottfried and Louise Piesche Hoemke.
She was raised in New York and moved to Utah to attend BYU. While in Utah, she met her eternal sweetheart, Jay Harold Swain, and they were married in the Salt Lake Temple on June 8, 1951. She was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving in many callings throughout her life.
She is survived by her children, Barbara (Arnold) Grundvig, Debbie (Dennis) Brown, Sharon Clarke (Steve Post), Chris (Darla) Swain, Julie (Thomas) Otto; 19 grandchildren; and 30 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Jay. We are sure there was a joyful reunion when she stepped through the veil.
