Florence Marie Swain, born in Sitka, Alaska on January 14, 1931, left us the evening of Saturday, August 10, 2019.
To the very end she was surrounded by her loved ones; Stephen Swain, 52; Ra Mona Swain, 51; and her grandsons Zackery Swain, 23, and Nathanial Hall-Swain, 16.
Raised on Maxwelton Beach where Florence purchased land and a home and proved she was quite nearly the original DIY or Do it Yourselfer and Farmsteader around.
She helped create “Show and Tell Antiques” with her husband Edgar Swain and continuously gardened and created. She was a dedicated gardener for 30 years at “Aldermarsh Retreat” previously owned by Joy Moultan and was an avid and active contributor to Jan Smith’s artisan based “Christmas House”.
She was usually reserved, by nature, but never ceasing to surprise you with her eclectic knowledge, charm and stories.
Her last days were busy doing what she loved most, looking at gardening magazines, painting and visiting with Family. I’m sure she is making new friends now.
Rest easy and well, and don’t worry, we’ll all “Behave ourselves” down here.
Arrangements have been made with the assistance of Whidbey Memorial Funeral and Cremation Service.

Florence had a beautiful smile and I got the pleasure to see her paint rocks. She was a very talented lady. I send my wholehearted condolences to the family. My sweet lady, you will be missed by many.
