Debra Swanson

Obituary of Debra L Swanson


Debbie was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend who left this world after a long, courageous battle with cancer on November 16th at the age of 66. She was a true warrior!! Her world was filled with love from her loving husband Dennis, adoring children Tamie Schille, Chris Schille, Robert Neil (Amanda), and Hillary (deceased). She deeply loved her grandchildren and always had magical moments with Brody, Zoe, Millie, Finley, Henry and Cecilia and Annabelle. A North St. Paul beauty raised on a street called "Memory Lane" with a large, devoted family; her siblings; Janet (deceased), John (Kathy), Joan Hause (Al), Nancy, Tim, Marcia Beaulieu (Ty), Patty Henry (Tim), Mary and Colleen. Many loving nieces and nephews.

She will be greeted at the gates of heaven by our Lord and Savior; parents, Harry and Donna; daughter, Hillary; Sister, Jan Peterson and Mother and Father in Law, Doug and Ruth Swanson.

Deb was a creative, fun, spiritual, mystical person who lived peacefully, joyfully, lovingly, gently and kindly. She was a "flower girl" at heart, had a beautiful soul, couldn't get enough of family, nature, and who loved the holidays! Her grandchildren describe her as fun, beautiful, a princess and a ballerina.

We will see you in your garden, the flocks of birds at your bird feeders, the sun, the moon and the stars! Always missing you deeply, in our hearts and memories forever.

Words of gratitude cannot express enough to Dennis!!! Such a loving, dedicated, supportive husband who cared for Deb during her long journey.

Rest in eternal PEACE our darling! Kisses and hugs always!
