Cleda Ann Swope passed away quietly in the care of hospice on Wednesday, September 16, 2020 at 12:01 p.m. in her rural Warsaw home. A longtime area resident, she was 84 years old.

Born on August 29, 1936 in Muncie, Cleda was the daughter of Joseph E. and Neola P. Lawhorn. As a young child, her family moved to the South Bend area where she attended school. On May 26, 1955, Cleda was married to Dean Swope; the pair met when Dean was folding newspapers near her home in preparation for his delivery route and they’d been inseparable since.

Cleda was strong, caring and kind. She made friends easily and could strike up a conversation with seemingly anyone. She loved to travel and was a fantastic cook. She is well remembered for her love of Halloween and her popcorn balls which were so good that kids often came back for more. She loved Christmas too and time spent with her family. Of course, she was happy to feed them all! She had been involved with the PTA while her children were in elementary school and even chaperoned a school trip to Mexico.

Those who survive with memories to cherish include her husband of 65 years, B. Dean Swope; daughter, Christina (Jennifer) Swope; daughter-in-law, Kathryn Swope and grandchildren: Beatrice Cooper, Sophie Swope, Wesley Soliday, Morgan Swope and Avery Swope – all of Warsaw. She was preceded in death by her parents; sons, Bruce Dean Swope (2018) and Steven Edward Swope (2019); and sister, Beatrice Swope.

A Life Celebration® is being planned with Titus Funeral Home, 2000 East Sheridan Street, Warsaw. Date and Time of service are currently pending. Please check back soon for service details.
