Lucy Ann Sweigart, age 66, Formerly of Russell County

Lucy Ann Sweigart, age 66, of Arcadia, IN, passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 24, 2024, surrounded by her family at her residence.
Lucy was born in Jamestown, KY on September 6, 1957, to the late Oves “Cardell” and Vina (Ballenger) Chapman. On May 26, 1984, she married John M. Sweigart and shared 37 years of marriage until his passing in 2022.
Lucy grew up in the Jamestown, KY area and was a member of Russell County High School’s graduating class of 1975. Lucy worked for Industrial Dielectrics for 23 years until she took early retirement so that she could care for her mother for the last 8 years of her mother’s life. Those who knew Lucy knew she was a ball of energy and loved to care for others and volunteer. She spent countless hours volunteering throughout her community by helping arrange Teen Nights, volunteering as a Juvenile Probation Mentor, volunteering at the Aroma Food Pantry, and volunteering at Elwood Health & Living where she was recognized by being named Volunteer of the Year. In her earlier years, she enjoyed riding on the Harley with John, reading, and spending time at the lake on their boat. As she battled cancer she became more in tune with her old TV shows, especially Andy Griffith, and completing Sudoku puzzles. One thing about Lucy that never faltered is that she loved spending her time with her family and loved to spoil her nieces and nephews, whom she treated more like her own children. Lucy was a bright spot for anyone who knew her and is going to be greatly missed.
Lucy is survived by her brothers, John (Jo) Chapman of Arcadia, IN, Rudy (Jenny) Chapman of Jamestown, KY; Sister, Cathy (Jimmy Deceased) Grider of Arcadia, IN; sister-in-law, Jackie Chapman of Jamestown, KY; several nieces & nephews, great nieces & nephews, & great-great nieces & nephews.
