January 5, 2010

DAMARISCOTTA, ME: Mary Jean (Brinton) Swank, passed away at Cove's Edge Nursing Home in Damariscotta, Maine, on December 31, 2009, following a long illness.

She is survived by her loving husband, Rod William Swank of Pemaquid, Maine, whom she married in August 1950. They moved to Maine in 1984, following active careers in education in Ohio.

Mary Jean was born on November 19, 1927, in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, to Maibelle (nee Hardy) and Mark H. Brinton, and grew up in nearby Jeannette. She graduated from Jeannette High School (1946), Ohio Wesleyan University (B.A., 1950), and Kent State University (M.S., 1977). In college, she was a member of Alpha Gamma Delta (social sorority), Mortar Board (leadership honorary), and Theta Alpha Phi (theatre honorary) and served as President of the YWCA. She taught English and speech, served as an elementary school librarian, and directed nearly 50 high-school plays in the Heath City Schools from 1962 to 1984. During that time, she was active in the Saturday Review Club (Utica) and Delta Kappa Gamma education honorary, and served one term as Secretary of the Ohio Federation of Women's Clubs. She and her husband were founding members of the Heath United Methodist Church.

Upon moving to Maine, Mrs. Swank became active in and eventually served as President of the Fortnightly Club, the Willing Workers, the local Delta Kappa Gamma chapter, and the Lincoln County Garden Club. She was a member of the New Harbor United Methodist Church, an active volunteer for Olde Bristol Days, and an annual participant in the Damariscotta Region Cancer Walk. She loved reading, theatre, travel, gardening, playing the piano, music, and the dogs and cats under her feet over the years. Most of all, Jean loved her husband, her daughters, sons-in-law and grandchildren, and her many students, colleagues, and friends.

Mary Jean is survived by her husband, Rod Swank (Pemaquid, Maine); daughters, Constance Swank (Tacoma, Washington), Ilene Garrett (Carmel, Indiana), Kathleen Barkley (Roswell, Georgia), and Carolyn Scroggins (Madison, Alabama); sons-in-law, Dan Scroggins, Dan Barkley, and Wayne Garrett; and grandchildren, Benjamin, Chase, and Lydia Scroggins, Jordan Barkley, and David and Abigail Garrett.

One infant daughter Janice preceded her in death.

All who knew Jean were blessed by her wonderful intellect, quiet but adventuresome spirit, generous heart, and deep values. She will be missed beyond measure.

A summer 2010 memorial service to celebrate Mary Jean Brinton Swank will be held at the Harrington Cemetery. The family has requested any gifts in her name be given to the Alzheimer's Association of America.
