Jeanne Swan

Jeanne Carol Swan (Revering), 81, of Burbank, WA passed away on September 10, 2021 at Avalon Health Care and Rehabilitation Center in Pasco, WA. She was born on June 2, 1940 Minneapolis, MN to Leonard Andrew Revering and Esther Bernadine Revering (Lindberg).

In Jeanne’s early years she grew up in Buffalo, MN and really enjoyed growing up with her brothers and her many cousins. Her dad followed the sheet metal trade, taking her and family around the country and settling Fairbanks, AK. This is where she attended High School. They lived in California, Ellensburg, Wenatchee and Burbank, WA.

A little note from George (her husband):

I, George Swan, met Jeanne, the love of my life. She was a waitress in a restaurant in Wenatchee. I was a Fisheries Research Biologist on a project in that area. I went in for breakfast and saw this lovely waitress and we instantly bonded and I could not stop smiling. I returned regularly, and finally got the nerve to ask for her phone number. Later, when I called, it turned out be a “Dial a Prayer” number. Not knowing how to take that, I went back for breakfast and asked her about the number, she replied “It was a test!” The rest is history and we shared 41 wonderful years of life together.

Jeanne worked in various restaurants; she worked with George for the Fisheries Research of the National Marine Fisheries and was a partner in operating the Nic Nack Shack in Wenatchee. Jeanne also belonged to the Women’s Sorority and enjoyed playing Bunco with her group of friends.

She enjoyed her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren.

Jeanne is survived by her husband of 41 years, George Swan; son, Bud Goodrich, daughter, Leanna Compton; daughter, Karol Larson; brother, Stan Revering and numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren and her friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; sons, Steve Douglas Goodrich, John Scott Goodrich; granddaughters, Alia Lutz and Andrea McCal Rath and her grandson, Anuel Warden Goodrich.

The family would like you to join them for a Celebration of Life for Jeanne on Saturday, October 23, 2021 at 1:00 pm at Events at Sunset (915 ByPass Hwy in Richland, WA).

  • Nice George, I remember those days when you first started coming around. You where such a bright light in her life.
    Jeanne was so creative and talented. I remember sitting for hours watching her mold a lump of clay into something wonderful to decorate your home with. I remember the children’s book she wrote and illustrated, a frog if I remember correctly.
    For me she was there a a very vulnerable stage of my life. She filled a gap my mother wasn’t able to fill at the time.
    Unfortunately for me as I got older distance separated us so I missed the pleasure of the later years but the love was always there.
    I will miss knowing she’s here on earth but heavens rejoicing a new angel had arrived.
    Thank you George for giving her a wonderful life.
    See you Saturday. ❤️😘

  • My lifelong friend of 51 years cheated me out of our planned wheel chair races. We often joked about being together in a nursing home setting together & exchanging our memories. So…to all Jeannie’s family and friends I feel your loss of a wonderful woman. I think she’s flying with the fairies that she loved so much. God Bless You my friend.
