Delia SCHWEERS

SCHWEERS, Delia Mary
It is with broken hearts the family announces the passing of Delia Mary Schweers on Friday, March 1, 2013. Sweet Delia passed with dignity as she lived her life, peacefully and courageously while surrounded by an abundance of love from her devoted family. She is joyously reunited with her adoring husband, Tony, and admired son, Danny. Also waiting for her in Heaven are many family members and cherished friends. She is lovingly survived by her constant companion and twin, Doris Rohla; brother Joe Mulvihill and sister, Helen Loyie; sons Douglas (Laurie), Michael (Tricia); daughters Cathy (Ron), Anna-Marie (Michael); and daughter-in-law, Eini. Also grieving are her inspiring grandchildren Amanda, Nicholas (Brianna), Joseph, Brandon, Christopher, Patrick, Jesse, the entire Rohla/Mulvihill family and the extended Schweers clan whom we all love so dearly. The family would like to express their gratitude to the community of the Immaculate Conception Church (to which Delia has been a parishioner for 58 years) for their prayers and support. We are also indebted to the kindness of Dr. Tommy Yuen, Margaret and staff. There will be a service commemorating Delia's virtuous life at the Immaculate Conception Church, 8842 119th Street, Delta on Friday, March 15, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. The family would be grateful for donations, in lieu of flowers, sent to Delta Hospice Society, 4635 Clarence Taylor Crescent, Delta, BC V4K 4L8, www.deltahospice.org.
