Our beautiful mother and grandmother, Shirley Ann Dodds Swapp, 90, formerly of Cedar City, UT passed away on January 26, 2020, at the home of her daughter in Layton, UT surrounded by her family. She was born on June 28, 1929 in Panguitch, UT to Thomas and Rebecca "Rea" Workman Dodds. She married Mont C. Swapp on April 13, 1952 in Panguitch. The marriage was solemnized in the St. George Temple on May 21, 1994. He preceded her in death July 25, 2003.
Mom loved all things beautiful: flowers, hummingbirds, making quilts for her family, cooking for loved ones, and reading. She was a happy woman who practiced kindness and compassion with everyone and her most prized treasures were her children and grandchildren. She was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She had a strong testimony of her Savior and was a wonderful example to her children.
