To all your family, We send our love and prayers and deepest condolences. One of Mom’s highligts was the Thursday Club every month. She sometimes referred to it as the Kittykat Club. Don’t know where she got that name. Mom and Dad are both gone and we miss them. We will also miss Anna Marie. She was always so sweet and kind, even when my brother and I were little and probably should have been brought up short on occasion, she was always quiet and sweet. May Gods Blessing and comfort surround you all. Love, Swearingens
Dear Bruce and Frank and families. So sorry for your loss. She was a really nice lady.
My sorrow goes with you. Dorothy Grace God bless you. Don Swearingen.
Jim and Marianna, I am sorry to hear of the passing of Marianna’s mother. Although there were not many times that I was in a setting with her, I do remember her as being a cheerful and positive person from the times I met her. Please accept my sympathy.
Frank, I never knew your mother, but when I saw the obituary, I immediately thought of you. I meant to write this as soon as I saw the notice, but time slipped away. It is amazing how quickly it flies now. I hope you are well and life has been good to you. I was divorced from Al Vogan in 1989, remarried in 1996. I married a friend of your sister, Marianna, his name is Tom Tucker. We live in University Park and between us we have 5 children. The youngest, my son Lance,is 22 and moved out in February of this year. He is in Boulder and will finish the last 2 years of his Bachelor’s degree at CU. He graduated from Centennial in 2004, all my kids went to Centennial and Tom’s 2 boys went to Central…great fun at Bell Game time. He was the president of the Senior Class and enjoyed his school experience and I believe we both did. Having him when I was 40 has been good for me, attending school activities; games, concerts, wrestling matches, etc. I think has kept me young at heart and in my thinking, even if not in my body and health. I have had 13 surgeries on the hip and now walk with a cane…but I still get around and actually walk fairly fast…the leg just isn’t as strong as the other one is. If you are ever in Pueblo, look me up or give me a call, my phone # is 719-545-1990. I would like to talk to you and see how you are doing and share some memories.
I lost my mother in 1982 when she was 67 and I know how difficult the loss can be…there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t miss her…but having faith in God makes the loss more bearable. Time really doesn’t heal, but it does help the pain subside some. Know that you have been in my thoughts and prayers ahd I hope you find comfort and strength thru your faith. Always, Shirley Childress Tucker
