Mrs. Natalie A. (Baron) Swift, age 52 of Kinnicutt Avenue, Warren, died Sunday, October 6, 2019 at her home, surrounded by the love of her family. She was the wife of Neil R. Swift, her caring, devoted, and loving husband of 23 years. Born in Camp Springs, Maryland, she was the daughter of Adam J. and Priscilla L. (Ruggiero) Baron of Bristol.
Natalie was a graduate of St. Mary Academy- Bay View, East Providence and received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from Wheaton College. Natalie embodied a strong faith which was exemplified by the way she lived her life with joy and love amidst the battle of ALS. Her beloved husband and children devoted themselves to her care. We are extremely grateful to the relatives and the entire East Bay community for their outpouring of love, compassion, and support for the entire family for years. It was her faith in God that got her through this illness.
In addition to her husband and parents, she is survived by six children, Nathan, Luke, Margaret, Grace, Thomas and Matthew, all at home, two sisters, Lisa M. Benzer (Shawn) of Orchard Park, NY and Julie M. Laroche (Doug) of Bristol and a brother Joseph A. Baron (Sarah) of Wellesley, MA and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
