Ann Marie Swander

Ann Marie (Pieschl) Swander, 58, of Sylvan Grove, Kansas and formerly of Salina, Kansas, passed away Wednesday, August 25, 2021.

Ann was born October 30, 1962 in Liberal, Kansas.  She was the daughter of Michael and Jeanette (Dreiling) Pieschl.  She grew up in Salina, Kansas and graduated from Sacred Heart High School.  She then attended and obtained a degree from Wichita State University in Dental Hygiene.

Ann was united in marriage to Fred Lee Swander on September 13, 1986 in Salina.  This union was blessed with two daughters; Jessica and Molly.  They made their home in Salina for over 35 years before moving close to Wilson Lake, her happy place.

Ann was a Registered Dental Hygienist for Dr. Brian Schaulis in Salina for over 30 years.  She enjoyed reading, Gumping (mowing), cooking and was a proud Master Angler.  Her greatest joy was being able to play with her grandbabies.
