Betty E. Swank, 91, of Warren, passed away surrounded by her family, Saturday afternoon, October 6, 2018, at St. Joseph Warren Hospital.

She was born May 14, 1927 in Girard, a daughter of Andrew and Helen (Blackburn) Chismark.

Betty had previously worked for Easco/Benada Aluminum Co. for 7 years. She spent the majority of her adult life as a homemaker, raising and caring for her family.

Betty married twice. Her first husband, Joseph S. Colapietro, died October 1, 1999. Her second husband, Forrest Swank preceded her in death August 6, 2009.

She attended Believers' Christian Fellowship in Warren, where she loved to pray and sing praise to Jesus. She also loved the ocean and the thirteen years she spent living in Madeira Beach, FL. Her greatest joy was being a homemaker and taking care of her family, whom she dearly loved.

Betty is survived by five children; Joseph S. Colapietro, of Girard, Gail Kovach, of Howland, Darlene Vigorito, of Myrtle Beach, SC, and Nancy (Donald) Stephenson and Betty Jo Colapietro, both of Girard. She also leaves behind three brothers; David, George, and Paul Chismark, all of Girard; nine grandchildren and eighteen great grandchildren.

Besides her husbands, Betty was preceded in death by her parents; a daughter, Linda (Colapietro) Esposito; two brothers; Charles and Robert Chismark; four sisters; Jeanne Palipchick, Annabelle Bozin, Blanche Ragozzine, and a sister Marie, to whom she was very close; and two grandsons; Donnie Stephenson, III and Michael Colapietro.

In accordance with Betty's wishes there will be no funeral services or calling hours.
