Annabelle Washburn Swaim

Annabelle Washburn Swaim, Aug. 1923 - Aug. 2017. She was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington, married James H. Swaim Jr. in 1946. Jim and Ann spent their lives in Colorado. Ann moved to the GVH Senior Care Center in May 2015. She was preceded in death by her husband and is survived by son, Jim Swaim, daughter-in-law Missy Kizer, daughter Julie Bornschlegel, son-in-law Hal, two granddaughters Holly and Amanda, and four great grandchildren as well as her extended family, daughter Christie Halverson. Ann’s passion was growing roses and flowers. In the past two years she could be found helping Missy with her gardens. Ann will be buried in Fort Logan National Cemetery next to her husband, Jim. She was very proud of her Dad, Pearle Archibald Washburn, a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel who served in three wars. Ann served in the army during WW2 as an aircraft tech photographer. Her beautiful smile and precious love will forever be in our hearts. Friends, please hug your loved ones, share a bouquet flowers with them and enjoy a piece of chocolate cake together (Ann’s favorite.) Support your local VFW or GVH Senior Care Center. God bless and thank you to everyone who loved, played and cared for mom.
