Evelyn Lois Gibson Swan died on June 2 at the age of 91.
Born in Corry, Pennsylvania on July 23, 1928, to Paul and Bernice (Dingfelder) Gibson, she was the oldest of four children who helped her mother with the younger children. This was likely where she got her desire for Nursing.
After graduation from high school, Evelyn went to Erie for Nursing School. During her time there, she was swept off her feet by the outgoing Charles N. Swan and they married in 1949 and would stay married for 46 years, until Charlie died.
In 1966, the family moved to Panorama City, California, for Charlie’s work. Evelyn immediately got a job at Kaiser Permanente Hospital and stayed there for 35 years, until she retired. During her work years, she went back to school to get a Bachelors’ degree.
Evelyn was predeceased by her parents, siblings, Paul, Jr. and Louise, and her son, Jeff. She is survived by her sister, Laura, sons, Philip Swan (Judy), Gary Swan (Liz Tungate), and daughter, Monta Kuhlman (Bart), five grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and 8 great-great-grandchildren.
