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.
