Margaret Ann Britton was born Jan. 13, 1939, to Eugene Debbs and Mary Alice Wade Britton in Fort Worth. She was raised in Arlington and graduated high school in 1957. Margaret married James Swan June 21, 1957 in Arlington. They lived in many cities including Arlington, Dallas and Mesquite, before they moved to Lubbock where they lived until 1981. Margaret and James moved to Azle, Fort Worth and Santo before they settled in Weatherford in 1998. Margaret was a member of Southside Church of Christ in Springtown.
Her main interests were trying to live a Christian life, being a good wife and mother and always being kind to others. Margaret loved animals of all shapes and sizes and hurt terribly for their mistreatment as well as for abused children. She was a 4-H leader for a few years in Lubbock and loved working with kids. Margaret said, "My main accomplishment in life has been being a loving and faithful wife and mother."
The family would like to send a special thank-you to Covenant Hospice, especially Tori and Ena.
She was preceded in death by her brother, Jack Britton, and his wife, Nancy.
