E. LYME - Jeane Swatzburg

Well let me tell you! I had an amazing time while I was here on Earth. Sadly there were other plans for me and I had to leave my physical form at Yale New Haven Hospital, at age 73 on August 26, 2017.

It all started on October 20, 1943, when my father and mother, Jeremiah and Eva Andryauskas Haggerty welcomed me into the world at Backus Hospital in Norwich, CT. I lived in Norwich for most of my life and graduated Norwich Free Academy in 1961. I was very supportive of the school as I continued to be part of the Alumni and helped set up class reunions.

I first started my working career at Hartford National Bank in Norwich. Later I would meet Alvin Swatzburg. We were married in Ledyard on June 1, 1974. We worked together in a couple well known restaurants in Norwich and Montville Levy's, Al's Uptown, and Al's Food Emporium where we got to know many people and catered many wonderful events. Unfortunately, we had to leave the restaurant business and I had to take on a few other jobs working at BBP and then L+M Hospital working in the records department. When I finally officially retired I wanted to give back to the community, and I continued to work at Care and Share. It was not all work for me, I did lead a very active life. I enjoyed traveling with family and friends, even if they were little day trips. Nothing was greater though then working in the garden, or spending a summer day at McCooks with a great mystery book. I had met many wonderful people while I was alive and I will surely miss them. Though I will greatly miss my family whom I will continue to watch over. I have my 3 cousins Barbara Zappieri, Leo Chupaska, and Ann Weir. While I did not have any children of my own I certainly treated my two step-daughters, Susan Mackie of Niantic and Marcie Blaise and husband Brian Blaise of Colchester like my own. They also produced amazing grandchildren Michael Mackie and wife Melissa, Danielle Blaise, and Jessica Blaise. As well as great grandchildren whom I was so blessed and happy to meet for a short time Madison, Calvin and Elizabeth Mackie.

If you would like to come celebrate my life with my family you can meet at Church and Allen Funeral Home, 136 Sachem St in Norwich at 9:15 a.m., on Tuesday Aug.29th for a procession to Graveside Services at 10am at Hebrew Cemetery # 3, Middle Rd., Preston, CT.
