MEXICO, Maine — On July 18, 2004, M. Georgette Swett passed away at the age of 73, following a long and courageous battle with lung cancer. She was born on July 6, 1931, in Rumford, Maine, the oldest child of George and Aimee (Pache) Kirouac. Growing up in Rumford, she attended Rumford schools. After she completed her schooling, she worked at Carrol Cut-Rate and R.C. Jewelers.
On Feb. 8, 1954, she married John H. Swett Jr. Together they built a home in Mexico and a family to which they were both very devoted. Throughout her life, she enjoyed caring for her family and making their home a place where their friends were always welcome. Along with her homemaking tasks, she also enjoyed home projects, sewing, knitting, gardening, genealogy, and her pets. As her children got older, she took the opportunity to work in the Mexico High School cafeteria. She devoted herself to the care of her husband, John, when he became ill, and she was there for him throughout his last days. In her later years, she enjoyed being a grandmother and was proud of all her family.
Sadly she was predeceased by John and also by her brother, Paul Kirouac, and his son, Peter. She leaves behind four children, Cynthia Swett and her daughter, Rachel, of Rochester, N.H.; Stephen Swett and his wife, Josephine, and their daughter, and granddaughter, Jana and Savannah of Lewiston, Maine; Paul Swett and his wife, Nancy, and their children, Lauren and Michael of Old Town, Maine, and Jeanne Swett of New Gloucester, Maine. She is also remembered by her sister, Jeanne Lamson and husband, Robert, of Davenport, Fla.; her brother, Francis Kirouac and wife, Dianne, of Harmony, Maine; and her sister-in-law, Lois Spence of Freehold, N.J.; as well as many nieces and nephews and their families.
Respectful of Georgette’s wishes, there will be no memorial service. Donations may be made in her memory to the American Cancer Society, Maine Division Inc., 1 Main St., Suite 300, Topsham, ME 04086. Albert & Burpee Funeral Home. [Foster's Daily Democrat, Wed Jul 21, 2004, sent by Hector Irizarry]
