Helinske, Marian Elizabeth Swann (Muti), age 71, of Knoxville, formerly of Chattanooga. It is with sadness that we, the daughters of Marian, inform you of our mother's death. It is with joy that we tell you she is in the presence of our Lord. She died a peaceful death at home "in her pink room" on June 12, 2004, 4:25 PM surrounded by family, friends, music, prayers, hugs, kisses and love as she entered the arms of Jesus. She was as brave and courageous in death as she was in life. She had absolute confidence in her faith and absolutely no fear as she faced what she called an adventure in going from this world to the next. The legacy she leaves for those who loved her is one of total peace, no regrets, teaching us so much in her life and so much through her death. Marian was a life long Baptist and spent her final years being loved and prayed for by the congregation at Farragut Fellowship Assembly of God. The last church she attended was Central Baptist of Bearden. Marian was born in LaGrange, GA May 6, 1933, a child of the Depression Era living in several places throughout Georgia and Tennessee. Despite her poor surroundings, she was a happy, optimistic child and teenager whose diary indicates a fun-filled social life and lots of time on the phone! Marian was an avid Bible reader and was baptized by Rev. J. Harold Smith at the age of sixteen. She was obviously a Christian and enjoyed memorizing bible verses and sharing her faith with any and all . Hers was an enthusiastic and incredible sense of humor that delighted anyone who knew her and that she thankfully passed on to her children. When Marian was around, there was always lots of laughter. Marian knew how to throw a party and was always the life of a party. She was frequently called "Miss Manners"! She was a military officer's wife for 23 years. She lived in Germany and Alaska and claimed she could only tan by the Mediterranean Sea in Italy! While her husband fought wars, she raised two daughters and was an incredible homemaker. The woman could cook, sew, teach Sunday school, participated in numerous committees, was a Girl Scout leader, a prolific letter writer, tennis player, water-skier, bowler, bridge player, a defender of the underdog, and a secretary at various jobs. The reason she could do all these things so well is because she would "structure her day." Her last job of twenty years was as super-secretary at the Behavioral Medicine Department at Ft. Sanders where she amazed everyone with her ability to juggle numerous duties, numerous doctors, and keep an incredible smile on her face. To say anyone who knew Marian really loved her seems trite but it's true. Were there ever eyes so brown? Was there ever such a giving and forgiving spirit? Her wit, her humor, her love and grace, even her benign sarcasm lived in the hearts of those who knew her. If someone had a need, Marian would fill it. If someone needed a kind word, Marian would say it. If someone needed to be jacked-up, Marian could do it! Amid all the silliness, there was never any doubt that her heart belonged to Jesus. A faithful wife, devoted mother, child of God… our loss is Heaven's gain. In addition to her husband, Norman, Marian was preceded in death by her parents, Leon and Ruby Swann; sister, Nancy Swann. Survivors: daughters and son-in-law, Catherine and Jack Montgomery of Knoxville, Hope York of Hermitage, TN; grandchildren, Marian Heather Montgomery of Knoxville, Jonathan and Nicholas York; step grandchildren, Ericka Nix and her husband Jeff of Atlanta, GA, Amanda Draper and her husband Xavian of Macon, GA, Jay Montgomery of Atlanta, GA; step great-grandchildren Griffie Knoop, Catie and Dillon Nix; sisters, Anna Jo Coffelt of Soddy Daisy, TN and Janice Montgomery and her husband Larry of Keithville, LA; special friend and soul mate, J. Drury Patteson (Dr. Pat) of Knoxville who loved her before her illness and never wavered, who has been grafted into our family forever... there will never be another Pat. A special thanks to "The Speck" (dear Cathy), also to sweet Kaye, to wonderful Rachel, to the incredible people at Farragut Assembly of God who always held Marian and all of us "up in prayer" and to the ladies who gave of their time to come sit and visit with Marian, to Dr Byrd who finally helped us to understand, to Adventa Hospice especially Shirley and Sandy. Marian lived with and was cared for by her daughter Catherine and son-in-law Jack…a word about Jack. Whatever Marian wanted, Jack made sure she had it ! He loved Marian and always promised her she would stay at home throughout her illness "in her pink room". He protected her dignity and wishes to the end and loved her with the love of a true son. Please join us for a wonderful time celebrating the life of a special soul. The family will receive visitors from 5 to 6:45 PM Tuesday followed by a Celebration of Life at 7 PM in the Click Funeral Home Farragut Chapel with Rev. Sonny Kirkendall officiating.
