Kay was born Oct. 6, 1952, in Eastland, Texas, the second of three children born to W.H. “Bill” Hoffmann Sr. and Dorothy A. Hoffmann.

She was raised in Eastland, where she graduated from Eastland High School. She attended Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, until her senior year, where she graduated from Midwestern State University (MSU) in Wichita Falls, Texas, with a degree in Elementary Education in 1975.

In addition to school she was an active member of Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority.

She married the love of her life, Johnny A. Swanson, in July 1974 during her senior year at MSU. They made their first home in Wichita Falls, where she was a devoted housewife and mother of two children, Ryan and Matt.

During their 45 years of marriage, her adventurous spirit and infectious personality resonated through many loving and valued friends in multiple countries and states of residence in the years after marriage.

She enjoyed socializing with her friends everywhere she went, but specifically in her “special place” at the Mira Vista Country Club.

Kay is survived by her husband, Johnny A. Swanson of Fort Worth; sons, Lt. Col. John R. Swanson (USAF) and wife Melissa of Pensacola, Florida, and Matthew A. Swanson and wife Tammy of California City, California; brother, W.H. “Bill” Hoffmann Jr. of Eastland; sister, Ginger Smith and husband Jett Smith of Fort Worth; grandson, Blake Swanson; granddaughters, Dallas Swanson, Brook Swanson and Madison Swanson; nephews, Dillon Smith of Fort Worth; niece, Summer Smith of Dallas, Texas; mother-in-law, LaNell Swanson of Wichita Falls; brother-in-law, Jimmy Swanson of Burleson; and granddog Bailey.

She was preceded in death by her parents; father-in-law, John D. Swanson of Wichita Falls; and brother-in-law Jerry Swanson of Electra.

The family of Kay would like to thank all the dedicated medical professionals involved during her eight-year fight with cancer.
