Donna Swan

Donna Gail (Brewer) Swan

November 22, 1945 – June 17, 2006

After a 2 1/2 year battle with cancer, it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Donna Swan.

Born in Vernon B.C., Donna graduated from the School of Psychiatric Nursing in April, 1966. Married to husband Ron Swan March 17, 1967. The couple later moved to Terrace in 1972 where they have resided to the present date. Donna is survived by her ever loving husband of 40 years Ron Swan, their two adoring children Callie Lancaster and Cory Swan, her two grandchildren Kyran and Teron Swan, her kindred spirit identical twin sister Darlene Moore, and Darlene’s family. She is predeceased by her parents William (Bill) and Agnes Brewer, and two brothers Billy and Ronnie Brewer.

A truly special person who’s beauty shone both inside and out. Donna dedicated her entire adult life caring for others at Terraceview Lodge and Mills Memorial Hospital psychiatric unit. Always there to lend an ear or a hand, she was loved by all who knew her. In turn she was blessed to have had so many loving and caring friends who were there for her to the end. Thank you,

we are forever in your debt.

A memorial will be held in Vernon, Monday, July 24, from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm at the Big Chief Mobile Home Park 5484 25th Ave.

In memory of Donna, should friends desire,
