Delores Mae Swager (nee Kennetz), age 85 of Clear Lake, WI, passed away at midnight on Wednesday, December 20th 2017.

Delores “Dee” Swager was born on January 26th 1932 in Clear Lake, WI, the daughter of George and Olive Kennetz. She grew up with a younger brother, George, Jr., surrounded by loving grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Dee attended Clear Lake Schools from kindergarten through her 1950 high school graduation. As a 6th grader she met the love of her life, Red Swager. They were married on February 11th 1951 at the Swedish Congregational Church in Clear Lake. To this union four children were born, Gary, Craig, Karen, and Carmen. Dee and Red raised their family in Stillwater, MN. Dee was proudest of her accomplishments as daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, friend, and homemaker. Dee was also an active participant in Swager Bros., Inc. with her husband, Red, her brother-in-law, Norris, and her sister-in-law, Gloris. Dee was actively involved with Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Sunday School with her children. After their children were grown, Dee and Red moved back to their hometown of Clear Lake, WI.

Dee had a quick wit and a ready laugh. Her eyes sparkled when she laughed. Her compassion for others exposed a large heart of gold covered with milk chocolate. Dee enjoyed laughter, fun, reading, seeing theatre productions, and spending time with friends and family (husband, children, cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews), especially her granddaughter, Heather and her great-granddaughter, Taylor. She enjoyed hearing of her grandson, Dustin’s adventures and loved him dearly. Dee also loved to travel. She always had a suitcase packed and was ready to go. Dee and Red saw all 50 States and many countries around the world. But she was always happiest in Clear Lake at home on the farm or at her beloved church home, Moe Lutheran.

Preceded in death by her husband, Red and her parents, George and Olive Kennetz.
