Rhea Christine Swanson, born September 9, 1980, beloved daughter of Lourine and Kevin Norman, passed away tragically and unexpectedly on Sunday morning, May 28, 2006 at the tender age of 25 years.
Rhea was a beautiful young woman, our ray of sunshine, an angel and a free spirit, who was loved by all who knew her. She embodied everything that was good in life, with her loving, caring and happy personality. She worked as a massage therapist and was a student at both SAIT and Mount Royal College.
Rhea is survived by her parents Lourine and Kevin Norman, Don Swanson; brother Rion and fiancÚe Kelly Montgomery; grandparents Dorothy and John Babcock; godparents Gail Shiffman and Roly Rickard; her loving boyfriend Joel Dustan; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
We all cherish the short time we had with her and will miss her deeply for the rest of our lives.
