Audry Louise Swann passed away at the age of 69 the evening of Friday, September 18, 2020, in Belton, Texas. She was born October 10, 1950, in Breckenridge, Texas, to Rosie Lee Moore (Wright) and Seward Louis Thompson.

Audry Swann was preceded in death by her father, Seward Thompson, and her brother, Seward Thompson. She is survived by her children. She was affectionately known by her children as Dirty Red thus her children became known amongst the family as the Dirty Red Gang. The Gang consisted of Carnell Thompson of Mineral Wells, Texas, who has 11 children and six grandchildren; Sadie Collins (husband Walter) of Belton, Texas, who has two children and three grandchildren; Daniel Swann (wife LaMonda) of Garland, Texas, who has two children; Robert Swann (wife DeAnn) of Shreveport, Louisiana, who has three children and two grandchildren; Isaac Swann (wife Gabby) of Breckenridge, Texas, who has three children and one grandchild; Relandus Swann (wife Hope) of Vernon, Texas, who has six children; and Seward Swann (wife Jeanette) of Midland, Texas, who has three children.

Audry was a social butterfly who loved watching Westerns or Perry Mason and simply enjoyed being around family. She made an impact on those she came in contact with. The moments shared may have been small as they occurred, but over time you came to realize how much or how big of a role the time shared with her actually meant to you.

A funeral service will begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday, September 26, 2020, in the Melton-Kitchens Funeral Home Chapel of Memories in Breckenridge, Texas, with Danny Brown officiating. Her interment will follow at the Breckenridge Cemetery under the direction of Melton-Kitchens Funeral Home staff. Pallbearers include Robert C. Swann Jr., Isaac R. Swann, Relandus D. Swann, Seward L. Swann, Zw’Juan M. Sheppard, and Xavier D. Sheppard. The honorary pallbearers are Carnell W. Thompson and Robert Johnson.
