It is with heavy hearts and immense gratitude for a life well-lived that we announce the passing of Constance Swartz, who entered heaven's gates on October 15, 2023 at 10:20am. Connie lived a life of profound intention, unwavering faith in God, and boundless love for family and community.
Connie was born October 5, 1933 in Logan County, Ohio. She was the oldest of 7 children and the daughter of the late Wilbur W Roby and Alice M (Huber) Roby.
Connie was a Registered Nurse and her love of being a care provider carried over into her personal life well past retirement age, providing loving support to those around her. She was also an avid gardner of flowers and foods, which she preserved every year along side her son Dave, who also shares her passion. She loved crafting and sewing and passed on the love of those things to her children/grandchildren and several of the young ladies at her church.
Connie was a devoted Mom and Maymee and enjoyed every moment she was able to spend with her family. Connie leaves behind a treasure trove of cherished memories, teachings, and values. She will be deeply missed by her children David Cochran of Muncie Indiana, Daniel Cochran (Diane) of Minnisota, Dawn Bond of Ft Pierce, Florida, and Diane Cochran of Stuart, Florida, daugher-in-law Mary of Texas, her grandchildren Russel, Sonia, Levi (Martina), Brandon, Taylor, Emily, Maya, Connor, Ellianna, Megan, Josie, Elizabeth, Stephanie and great grandchildren Carli, Caleb, Brianne, Preston, Josiah, Lyric, Luna, True, Charlee, Autumn, Jacob, Ava, Sabrina, KennaDee, Natalie, Merci, and Jackson, her sister Jeanne Hill of Fairfield, Ohio, brother Larry Roby (Emma) of Moyock, North Carolina and many cherished cousins, neices and nephews.
In addition to her parents, and husband Marvin Swartz of Ohio, step-son Doug, Step-daughter Jackie & Chris, she was preceded in death by her 3 brothers Robert, Richard, Donald Roby and sister Susan White.
She approached life with a deep sense of purpose, dedicating her time and energy to her church and family, always lending a helping hand to those in need and leading in the church's hospitality team until just months ago. Her commitment to faith and family created a legacy of love, unity, and understanding that will continue to inspire generations to come. She was a beacon of kindness and compassion, touching the lives of everyone who had the privilege of knowing her. Her deep faith in God was a guiding light, shaping her actions and inspiring others to follow a path of love, faith, and humility.
Friends and family had a celebration of Connie's life on October 20, 2023, 1:00pm at Grace Baptist Church, 6401 W River Road, Muncie, Indiana, 47304.
We come together not to mourn a life lost, but to celebrate a life lived with purpose, grace, and unwavering faith in the Almighty.
In Connie's life, we find inspiration to lead lives of intention, to love unconditionally, and to trust in God's divine plan.
With love and endearing remembrance
