Mary F. Williams

Mary F. Williams, 55, from Fairview, spent her last days at home with her family before she went to be with Jesus Wednesday night (March 27, 2013).

She received her ultimate healing after a three-year battle with a muscular disease and cancer, during which her husband, Gary, of 33 years never left her side.    

Mary was a strong woman with a beautiful smile and a contagious laugh. She was a 1975 graduate of Fairview High School and worked as a dedicated employee of Sam’s Club for 20 years.

Mary was passionate about volunteering with the Children’s Miracle Network for many years and also participated in the Relay for Life on several occasions. She was actively involved and loved attending Noah’s Ark Church, where she was a member.

Mary was a supportive wife, mother and “Mawmaw,” as well as a beloved aunt, sister and friend. She always looked forward to visiting with loved ones at the traditional Swiger family gatherings. Mary enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren, especially attending their sporting events. She spent a lot of time recently saying, “Praise God!” for all of the little things.

Mary will be dearly missed by her husband and their four daughters, April Williams of Morgantown, Andrea Bland and husband Steven of Fairview, Ashley Cortellini and husband Richard of Fairmont, and Alisha Williams and Mathew of Worthington; as well as three grandsons, Gavin, 12, Gabriel, 6, and Zaiden, 4; one granddaughter, Ada Marie, 19 months (and another grandson due July 1); along with two sisters, Juantia Fox and Alice Milliron; three brothers, Joe Swiger and wife Rose, Jim Swiger and wife Elva, and John Swiger and wife Julie; four brothers-in-law, Carl Williams and wife Lilliam, Timothy Williams, Harold Williams and wife Lena, and Terry Williams; two sisters-in-law, Florence Tyree and husband Harry, and Lora Woolwine; as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.

Mary’s parents, Claude J. and N. Jean Swiger of Fairview, and her father- and mother-in-law, Carl and Nellie Williams, went on from this life before her.

Friends and family will be received at Domico Funeral Home, Curry Chapel in Fairview, today from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. The body will lie in state from noon to 1 p.m. Saturday at Mary’s home church, Noah’s Ark Assembly of God in Fairview. A service will be held on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Noah’s Ark. Interment will follow at the Fairview Cemetery. The pallbearers, dressed in their blue jeans at Mary’s request, will be “the boys,” John Swiger Jr., Jim Swiger II, Joseph Swiger, Christopher Milliron and Clarence Swiger, as well as Jason Statler.

Donations in Mary’s memory can be sent to Noah’s Ark Assembly of God, P.O. Box 309, Fairview, WV 26570 or West Virginia Rescue Ministries (the Union Mission) Inc., 107 Jefferson St., Fairmont, WV 26554.

Condolences may be sent to the family online at www.domicofh.com.
