Judith "Judy" Ann Daynes Swank of Seabrook passed away Saturday February 13th after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. She is survived by her husband of 57 years, Gerald "Gary" Wayne Swank, sister Maralyn Daynes Tolman, daughters Melanie Kai Lott and Stephanie Ann Swank, grandchildren Jacob Lott and Zebulun Lott, and great-grandchildren Mikaila and Oliver. \n Judy was born May 22, 1938 in Salt Lake City, the daughter of Dr. John F. Daynes and Bernice Kayser Daynes, and grew up in Provo. As a young woman she loved skiing, played the piano and cello, and worked as a Girl Scout leader. She attended University of Utah in Salt Lake City, and married Gary on Jan. 16th, 1959, at First Baptist Church of Salt Lake City.\nThe two moved to Huntington Beach CA in 1960, and in 1965 Judy decided to pursue a career in cytology, interning at Hospital of the Good Samaritan in Los Angeles. The family moved to New Jersey in 1970, where she spent the next 30 years as a cytotechnologist and laboratory manager. \nJudy loved such crafts as sewing, leatherworking, and quilling, much of her handiwork decorating her home. She also loved sailing, and spent summer vacations and spare time with Gary cruising the Eastern Seaboard and to Bermuda. She earned a 100-ton master's license for sail and power, taught courses in navigation and sail for the U.S. Power Squadron Auxiliary, and taught one-on-one sailing to other women. She and Gary retired in 2000 to Beaufort, and after years of hard work visited Europe, South America, and the Caribbean.\n A dedicated Christian, Judy spent 12 years as administrative assistant at Grays Hill Baptist Church, and started a bus ministry, picking up neighborhood children for Wed. evening programs. Very active in Gideons International, she served as president of the local Women's' Auxiliary, and was devoted to putting God's Word into doctors' offices and nursing homes.\nMuch loved by friends and family, she will be greatly missed. And for the many who knew her, the following quote from Shakespeare seems an apt portrait: "Though she be but little, she is fierce!"\n A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, February 20, 2016 at 11 AM at Grays Hill Baptist Church.\nIn lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Grays Hill Baptist Church and Gideons International.
