Shirley Eileen Swane
1936 - 2020

Peacefully on July 11th, 2020 at the age of 83, Mom passed away after a lengthy illness.

Mom was born December 29th, 1936 in Dugald, Manitoba to Cyrus & Norine (Dasher) Shaver.

She was predeceased by her parents; siblings George (Irene) Shaver, Ron (Rae) Shaver, Joanne (Byron) Cook, and sister-in-law Ruth Shaver.

She is survived by her brother Allan Shaver; children Joyce (Brian) Sedo, Karen (Kris) Singh, Randy (Lori) Swane, Valerie (Chris) Witoski, and Rosanna (Bill) Suderman; grandchildren Kristin, Erika, Sarah, Bryan, Tara, Jacob, Megan, John, and Vicki; great-grandchildren Kayla, Erik, Denver, Deacon, and Landon and numerous nephews, nieces and friends.

Mom loved her family and was always there for all of us. She spent her life in Transcona and worked many years at EH Price. Mom would make holidays a special occasion by hosting her family with her cooking and generous gifts (you never left hungry). She was active with dancing, golf, and travel in which she made numerous lifelong friends which included her special friend Ray; who was a true partner to her in her later years. Mom took great pride in her home and flowers that she planted. People would comment that it was like a beautiful park. Mom was a beautiful person and will be missed so much.

We would like to thank the staff at Seine River Retirement home, The Rosewood and River Park Gardens for all their help and support over the last four years. You are all special people and are appreciated.

In lieu of flowers we ask that donations are made in the memory of Shirley to the Parkinson’s Society of Manitoba & Alzheimer Society of Manitoba.

Visitation 11:00 a.m. Friday, July 24, 2020 at the Best Western Premier Hotel, 900 Regent Avenue, Winnipeg, MB. Interment at Millbrook Cemetery following.
