Ada Marie Swearingen

Born on June 15, 1925, mom passed away on June 20, 2009 in her home in Kennewick, surrounded by her loving family.

Mom moved to the Tri-Cities in September of 1946 with her husband. She was a homemaker and took care of her 5 children until she had a stroke in 1978. Since that time mom lived the remainder of her life in a wheelchair, but she never lost the love for her family or friends. She was an inspiration to all of us and will truly be missed in our lives.

She is survived by her children, Dale G. Janet Swearingen, Jr., Barbara A. Scot McKenzie, Lisa G. Swearingen, Rachel E. Thomas Kenning, and foster daughter Teresa Wells all residing in the Tri-Cities. She is also survived by her siblings Bill Clouse Casper, Wyoming, Helen Mae Stillwell Tampa, Florida, Robert Clouse Kokomo, Indiana, and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Dale G. Swearingen Sr., daughter Darlene M. Bumpaous and her parents.

Visitation will be held at Einan's Funeral Home in Richland, WA on Thursday, June 25, 2009 from 4:00-8:00 P.M., then a graveside service on Friday, June 26 at 11:00 A.M. There will be a potluck dinner from 1:00-3:00 P.M. at 612 N. Garfield St. Kennewick, WA on Friday, June 26, 2009 in remembrance of Ada.

We want to give a very special thanks to the Hospice at the Chaplaincy nurses who helped up care for our mom till the end; they were truly a blessing for her and also for our family. Also to the family and friends that came and saw mom; she truly enjoyed her visits with everyone.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Hospice at the Chaplaincy, 2108 W. Entiat Ave., Kennewick, WA 99336.
