Dorothy Swift

April 12, 1946 — June 24, 2017

Bessemer City, North Carolina

Dorothy "Dottie" Breakfield Swift, 71, of Bessemer City passed away on Saturday June 24, 2017 at Carolinas Medical Center, Charlotte. Born April 12, 1946, in Gaston County, she was the daughter of the late John T. Breakfield and Dorothy "Dot" Long Perry.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her infant daughters; Tammy, and Shannon.

Left to cherish her memory is her loving husband of 54 years, Tom Swift, Sr.: sons, Steve Swift and wife Marie, Tommy Swift, Jr. and wife Melody, Brian Swift and wife Paula; sisters Betty Dawson and husband David of Shelby, and Diane Popwell of Bessemer City; brother, Edward Perry and wife Donna of Cherryville; two grandsons, and five granddaughters.

Dottie was a loving wife, mother, and nanny whose spirit, kindness, and generosity could be rivaled by none. Her favorite thing to do was spend time with her family and dote on her seven grandchildren. She will be sorely missed by all of those lucky enough to have known her.

Funeral services will be held 3:00 PM Tuesday, June 27, 2017 in the Sisk-Butler Chapel with Evangelist Sidney Weaver officiating.

Her family will receive friends from 2:00 to 2:45 prior to the service at the funeral home and other times at 1014 Swift Springs Rd, Bessemer City, NC.
