A TRIBUTE TO MARIANNE FARNSWORTH

Marianne Farnsworth ran the Farnsworth Swim School for twenty-eight years in Almaden Valley. She devoted her life to service, teaching, and making a difference in many people’s lives.

Marianne was featured in the Almaden times – “Swimming as Fast as She Can”.

Marianne died in October 2007 after battling breast cancer for eighteen months. In spite of her illness, she continued to teach swimming and elementary school while fighting this disease with faith and determination.

The Farnsworth family is carrying on her legacy of swimming by maintaining the swim school. Because the house is being sold, we are re-locating the school to a different home so we can carry on Marianne’s legacy, teaching, and making a difference in many people’s lives.
