Callie Swango Brandon

of Helena, AR

April 23, 1932 - January 15, 2022

Callie Mae Swango Brandon of Helena, Arkansas, was born April 23, 1932, to Raymond Dare and Kate Taylor Swango of Como, MS. She went to be with her Lord on January 15, 2022. Growing up in Como was the best of times, and her friends, the Como Crowd, tried to see each other as often as possible up into their eighties. She graduated from Ole Miss where she was a Chi Omega, Campus Favorite, and an avid Rebel fan.

Of great importance to her was Explorer's Bible Study where she had been a leader since 1985. She was a member of First Presbyterian Church in Helena.

Preceding her in death are her parents and her sister Peggy Swango DuBois. Left to miss her are her children, Betsy and Howard Woodyard of Little Rock, AR; Cissye and Billy Mounger of Jackson, MS; Craig and Pat Harcourt of Memphis, TN; Bill and Stefanie Brandon of Orlando, FL; her grandchildren, Cooper Huff, Ross (Rebekah) Brandon, Kate Taylor (Cam) Medina, Callie (Reid) Wesson, Dare Harcourt, Catherine (Matt) Glover, Carter Brandon, William (Maggie) Mounger; her great-grandchildren, Liam Medina, Philip and James Wesson, and Elle Glover. Her friends are many and very much loved.

Her family will gather for graveside services at Como's Friendship Cemetery. A celebration will follow on Callie's 90th birthday.

Memorial donations may be sent to Explorer's Bible Study, PO Box 425, Dickson, TN 37056, or a charity of your choice.

Hadn't seen Callie in years, but loved her like a sister. Will miss just knowing that she was alive. Many years of fond memories. Being with her was always fun in Como, Oxford, Memphis, Helena, Dallas, and last time Sea Island.

Sissy and I send our deepest condolences to Bill and Stefanie and the whole family. She always wore a smile and had a nice word to say. She was beautiful inside and out, and we sure hate to learn of her passing. I last saw her at the Manor and she seemed like she never aged to me. RIP Ms Callie.
