Mrs. Shirley Annette Lanham, age 83 of Villa Rica, Georgia passed away Tuesday, May 5, 2020. She was born June 16, 1936 in Douglas County, Georgia, the daughter of the late Mr. Reese Swanson and the late Mrs. Thelma Smallwood. Mrs. Lanham was a member of New Brooklyn Baptist Church in Temple, Georgia since childhood but attended True Vine in Villa Rica, Georgia regularly until her health began to decline. She loved all her family, loved life and she loved her church and missed it greatly. She enjoyed cooking in her earlier years, liked to sew and make clothes for her family. She also liked to crochet, loved flowers, shopping at the Dollar General, loved her game shows and was fascinated with Snowmen and Butterflies. She was always thinking of others by sending cards to those who were ill, needed comfort or just to brighten someone’s day. She retired from Vince Hosiery Mill with 30 years of service and enjoyed her job very much.
In addition to her parents she is preceded in death by brothers, Gary, Pete and Elwyn Swanson; sister, Gloria Jean Swanson.
