Faye Young Swain, 91, of Merritt Island, FL, passed away on Friday, November 5, 2021 at Courtenay Springs Village, surrounded by her loving family.

Born in Pennsylvania on September 25, 1930, she was a daughter of the late Mary Ellen Young Jones and George William Jones. Her husband, Thomas Jefferson Swain Jr. Preceded her in death on September 27, 1989.

Faye was a homemaker, having spent many years living with her children and caring for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In her earlier years, Faye loved to spend time at the beach with her family and host gatherings with her “Tommy.” She also enjoyed painting and writing poetry. In her later years, Faye loved to attend the weekly parties and outings at the nursing home, where she was the life of the party. Faye always looked beautiful, having her hair and make-up done no matter the occasion. Her smile, laugh, and happy-go-lucky spirit will be missed by everyone who knew her.

She is survived by her grandchildren, Angela Garrett (Shane), Mary Thomas (Nick), Samantha Smith (Shane), Sara Asher (Aaron), T.J. Swain, Todd Swain, Jeffrey Michael Swain, and Stevie Ray Swain; great-grandchildren, Claybrook Story, Alyssa Story, Gavin Eckman, Gage Eckman, Caiden Garrett, James Darryl Markley Jr., Hannah Markley, Shane Cauley Jr., Jasiah Cauley, Jeremiah Cauley, Marley Swain, Cobain Swain, Kayleigh Swain, and Jasmine Swain.
