HOLLEY – Denise E Swift, 49, of Holley, passed away after a long illness on July 21, 2022. She was born on December 5, 1972 to the late Michael and Karen (Jennejohn) Swift.

Denise was a very hard worker. She truly enjoyed all of the jobs that she held. She also loved to travel. In fact, it was her love of travel that led her to take a job that required her to travel across the country to different cities for months at a time. Her parents loved to join her and enjoy the different areas she was assigned to. She changed careers when her Dad became ill and she wanted to come home to be with him. Most recently Denise worked for SUNY Brockport, until her illness made working too difficult.

Denise also loved Disney World and Disney movies. Her favorite was Lady and the Tramp. She collected many figurines from the movie and even named her Cavalier King Charles Lady.

Denise is survived by her siblings, Jason Swift and Christopher (Chaley) Swift; nephews, Richard, Jared and James Swift and Joel and Jenna Ferrigno; aunts and uncles, Kevin Jennejohn, Janet (Terry) Carey, Sheila (Don) Cox, Orville (Bernadette) Swift, Elmer Swift and Debby Swift.

She was predeceased by her brother Daniel and her parents Michael and Karen.
