Obituary for Beryl Wanita Cowan (Swingle)

Beryl Cowan (nee Swingle) passed away in her sleep at age 95, on July 7th, 2020. She was predeceased by her late husband, Dr. Murray Cowan, 26 years ago. Left to cherish her memory are her four children, Brent (Dee) Cowan, Susan (Larry) Stoller, Laurie (Reg) Hashizume, and Brenda (Dave) DeGagne; as well as 7 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. She lived her life with dignity and poise and was a willing spirit right to the end. She loved new adventures including her many trips to Maui where she enjoyed snorkeling and scuba diving – always on the lookout for turtles. We all hope she has found a never-ending game of bridge wherever she is,and wish her good tablemates and an even better hand. The family would like to thank Dr. Mastel for his years of care, and all the staff at Masterpiece Southland Meadows, for allowing her to live her final years independently and with grace. No services will be held, per her request. If friends so desire, please direct any donation to a charity of your choice Condolences may be sent through or to subject heading Beryl Cowan

Dear Brent, Sue, Laurie and Brenda,

It is the end of an era. All the Prospect Drive “grown ups “ are together again, probably enjoying hi balls and catching up.

i will always think of your Mom as a warm, beautiful woman, friend to dogs and always dressed to the nines. And, of course, as the woman who single handedly introduced the whole neighborhood to “real” spaghetti.

She will be missed. My deepest sympathy to you all. Laura

My thoughts are with the family. Beryl was indeed a classy Lady who always took a lively interest in events and was willing to share her views. She will be missed by all her family and very close friends and by a host of others whose lives she touched.

Brent and family,
Our sincerest condolences on the loss of your mother. When you shared that you were all heading to Hawaii it made me smile. Through the sharing of stories on this page and the obituary I've got to know a little bit about her life. She sounds like an amazing person that will truly leave a legacy with her passing
Thinking of you and your family.
Ed and Michele Quiring
