Joann Swords, 81, of Jacksonville, Florida passed away on Saturday, June 20, 2020.

She was born on May 20, 1939 to Noah and Bera Griffin in Hoboken, Georgia. Joann would go on to marry the love of her life, James "Roy" Swords on October 19, 1963. In 2003 Roy preceded Joann in death.

Joann was a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother foremost. She treasured her children and grandchildren, embracing every moment that she could with them. She especially enjoyed her role as Nana to Jeffrey, Kristie, J.J., Josh, Heather, and Kassie. Time with them was better than anything else in this world.

She is survived by three daughters; Vickie (Earl) Bishop, Susie (Ricky) Kinney, and Cynthia. She is also survived by Frank Swords, David Swords, Jerry (Tammy) Stewart, and Susan (Howard) Lowe.

"Mom, you have given so much and asked for so little in return. Thank you for always being there for us, for teaching us, listening to us, helping us, forgiving us, loving us, and always, always paving the way for us. We will work hard to reach the standard that you set. Farewell sweet mama. You were simply magnificent. "
