When Only The Best Will Do. We ask that you please keep the Swain/Billin family in your prayers as they travel through this difficult journey.

Deborah Ann Swain was born on February 9, 1966 in Abbeville, AL to the late Eston Swain and Hassie Mae Vickers Swain-Billins. She was also preceded in death by her loving stepfather Bobby Billins.

At an early age, she received Jesus as her personal Saviour and was baptized at Union Grove Baptist Church in Eufaula, AL. She later served at Southside Community Church in Eufaula, AL for several years and went to New Mount Zion Baptist Church in Clayton, AL until her death.
