Doris Jeanne Swan

1925 – 2015

Doris Jeanne Swan, age 89, of St. Georges, DE, passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 15, 2015.

A native Delawarean, Jeanne was raised in Port Penn, and was the daughter of the late Leroy O’Neal and Hilda Kumpel O’Neal. She made her career as a bank teller with the former Wilmington Trust Company and worked at the Delaware City retail branch for many years before retiring.

Jeanne was an active member of her community and was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Port Penn, Port Penn Fire Company Ladies Auxilary, the New Castle chapter of the Eastern Star and a member of the Ever Faithful Class of Port Penn. Above all else, she was devoted to her family and was a loving wife, mother and grandmother who will be dearly missed.

In addition to her parents, Jeanne was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Dale “Bob” Swan and a daugther, Constance J. Swan. She is survived by her daughter, Judith Swan Trincia (Vincent); and grandchildren, Andrew Trincia (Oana), Beau Trincia and Nicholas Trincia.

The family wishes to offer their sincere thanks to the staff of FMC Dialysis in Middletown, the paratransit drivers of DART and the staff of Seasons Hospice at Christiana Hospital for the loving and exceptional care they provided to Jeanne.

A celebration of life will be held 1 pm on Friday afternoon, January 23, 2015, at the ChesDel Restaurant, 2120 Dupont Parkway, Middletown, DE.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the First Presbyterian Church of Port Penn, P.O. Box 177, Port Penn, DE 19731.

    When the Lord calls our loved ones home, He leaves a gift of memories in exchange.
    Jeanne certainly left a lot of memories with me even though our time together
    was short. Memories are the legacy of LOVE, and Jeanne was love the instant
    you met her. What a beautiful lady! I feel privileged to have been a part of
    such a well-lived life. Happy memories can carry you through sorrowful times.
    I know God has another angel, but I sure am going to miss her here. May God give
    you strength, comfort, and peace of mind in the difficult days ahead. I sure
    loved this lady so very much.
    My heartfelt sympathy,
    Barbara Gruwell

    Dear Andy and family,
    We are so sorry to hear about the loss of your Grandmother. We know how much you loved her. She had a nice long life but still difficult to accept. Even though you lived 3,000 miles away, it was so nice you made such an effort to visit her so often. We will be thinking of you and your family! Please take care!
    Frank and Stephanie

    I remember so many positive things about Jeanne…. her welcoming and warm smile, her impeccable gift of hospitality, her fabulous and copious meals…..and most obvious, her love of husband, Bob, and family.
    I have admired her from afar for many years now, but her image and life are as vivid as the example she set to all who knew her.
    She will rest in peace.
    Much love and prayers of healing to all the family.

    Love,

    Anne

    Jeanne was a lovely person and an inspiration to all. As a dialysis companion she brought hope and comfort to all. She knew all by name as well as their families and made everyone feel special. We will miss her dearly!!

    Dear Judy, Vince, Nick, Beau, and Andy:

    Our deepest sympathy, prayers, and love are with you today and throughout the coming months. We moved in next door in 2001. Within a day we were introduced to Bob and Jeanne and they quickly won our hearts. I will personally miss her and the sweet chit-chats, sharing memories, and gleaning from her wisdom that was so much a part of our relationship. She was a beautiful person inside and out with spunk and character right up to the last. The saying Our loss is heaven’s gain is truly appropriate in this case. We have a loss, you have a tremendous loss, but heaven has gained a diamond. Please know if we can assist you through this time of grief in any way we are only a phone call away. Rich and Cheri Collins and family
