Shree Gates Obituary

     Shree Ann (Swaney) Gates, Uniontown, Pa.

     Shree Ann (Swaney) Gates went home to be with her Lord Jesus Christ, with her family by her side on December 2, 2023.

     She was born January 3, 1959 in Uniontown, Pa., the daughter of Harry Swaney and Betty Jo (Miller) Swaney.

     Shree was a graduate of Fairchance-Georges High School and Penn State Fayette where she majored in Business Administration. She had a long career in retail management including many years at the Uniontown JCPenney store, but Shree was most proud of the beautiful family she built with the love of her life, Larry. Together, they raised three children and built a home full of love and laughter where extended family and friends loved to gather and where she became “Ma” to many children beyond her own.

     She was preceded in death by her mother, beloved grandmother, Thelma “Mommom” Glover, grandfather, Roy “T-Bone” Glover and her brother, Dane Swaney.

     Shree is survived by her father; her loving husband of 36 years, Larry Gates, as well as her three children, Jessie Gates, Lacey Krysak and Garrett Gates and wife Claire. Left to cherish her memory are also her hearts delight, her six grandchildren, Maggie, Jude, Dmitri, Milo, Alice and Otto who will miss their Bubba dearly, as well as her brother Gregg Swaney, her sisters, Yvonne Nebraski and Dana Swaney Estabrook; numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, in-laws and friends.

     Friends and family are invited to celebrate her life at a Memorial Service on Thursday, December 7th, 2023 with visitation at 3:00 p.m. and the service at 5:00 p.m. at Trinity Fellowship Church of God, 166 Woodside Old Frame Road, Smithfield, Pa. 15478.
