SWIFT, Frances Louise Higginbotham – Age 93, passed away on Thursday, September 22, 2011 and is now present with her Lord. She was born on November 11, 1917. Preceded in death by her beloved husband of 66 years, Harold McKnight Swift Slim; son, John Harold Swift Jack; parents, John Ozanne and Lillian Gertrude Higginbotham; sister, Ruth Rawls Bill; brother, Paul Leonard Higginbotham Louise; granddaughter, Teresa Swift Ricketts of Chattanooga.

Mrs. Swift attended Clemons Elementary School and Hume Fogg High School. She was a member of Forest Hills Baptist Church and the Ruth Bible Class. She retired from Castner-Knott Company in 1990 after 33 years of service, all in the linen department in the Green Hills Store. She loved her Lord, her family, her friends, her country and she had such a zest for life. Although she faced multiple health problems, her attitude was positive, and she was our family's sunshine. She kept up with current events, politics, the Titans, the Tennessee Volunteers, and the Atlanta Braves. Listening to WSM and the Grand Ole Opry was a favorite pastime. In her younger days, she loved to paint, sew, embroider, knit and crochet. Her hands were never idle and her heart was full of love. A graveside service will be held 11am Saturday at Harpeth Hills Memory Gardens. Honorary Pallbearers are the ladies of the Ruth Bible Class. Active Pallbearers are Michael Swift, John Swift, Bill Cary, Jim Cary, Leon Stribling and Brad Davis. Visitation will be 3pm – 8pm Friday; 10am – 11am Saturday at HARPETH HILLS FUNERAL HOME, 9090 Hwy 100, Nashville, TN 615-646-9292. www.afamilylegacy.com
