Services for Elmira “Miny” Swigart, 82, were June 18. She passed away May 26 at her home in El Dorado, surrounded by family, close friends, and her dog, Dax.
Miny had a zest for life. With her fiery red hair and zippy Dodge Daytona sports car, she always had places to go and things to do.
She loved shopping, going to the movies, eating out, and traveling. She enjoyed cooking and sharing a meal with those she cared for, and a holiday celebration was not complete unless it was over the top.
Miny owned and operated the Double S/S Saloon in Burns from 1980 to 2000 alongside the “love of her life” and husband, John Swigart.
After the passing of her husband, Miny found joy in caring for children at First Baptist Day Care and Butler Community College Educare along with private nannying. The last child she nannied, Graydon, affectionately called her “NeNe.”
Her family includes her children, Kitty Hamilton, Mindy Cheuvront, and Ty Hamilton; stepson, Mike Swigart; five grandchildren, Sabra, Zach, MacKenzie, Alex, and Miles; and nine great-grandchildren.
She also was loved by close friends and her dogs, Elle, Tags, Quincy, and Dax. Miny was a wonderful grandmother and left behind countless cherished memories with her grandchildren.
