Obituary for Alisabeth R. Swanson

Alisabeth Rene Swanson was taken from us on July 1, 2019. Alisabeth was born October 9, 2000 in Los Angeles California. Alisabeth was such a beautiful girl, so full of love and the desire to help people. Anyone would tell you that her smile and her laughter were contagious. You couldn’t help but join with her. Alisabeth recently graduated from Thornapple Kellogg High School, and completed a fast track program at Grand Rapids Community College, where she was enrolled for the fall. She was also a manager in training at her job of three years at McDonald’s. She was a hard worker and she had goals that she was determined to make happen. Her biggest accomplishment was that she was a truly good person, with strong values and she wasn’t afraid to be open about it. She was a Christ follower and wanted to share the gospel with others. It was her dream to go to Africa some day for missionary work. She had already done four missions within the United States and served at her church, TVC, Middleville Campus where she was active in the Fusion 4/12 youth group. She leaves behind too many friends to count. Alisabeth leaves behind her heartbroken parents: Carl and Jamie Swanson; siblings: Brian (Paula) Swanson, Brandy (Dan Doyle) Swanson, Michael Baldry, Joshua Swanson, and Dominique Cassis; aunts and uncle: Sharon and Tom Davis and Jean Swanson; aunties: Alisa Rowan, Andrea Epps, and Marisa Hinton; nana: Deb Rich; six nieces and nephews; as well as many cousins and extended family. Alisabeth’s family will receive friends on Friday, 4:00 to 8:00 PM at the Beeler-Gores Funeral Home. Alisabeth’s funeral service will be conducted on Saturday, July 6, 2019, 11:00 AM at Thornapple Valley Church, Middleville Campus, Pastor Matthew VanDongen officiating. Memorial contributions to TVC Fusion Camp will be appreciated. Burial will take place in Mount Hope Cemetery. Please visit to share a memory or to leave a condolence message for Alisabeth’s family.
