Deceased Name: Gwendolyn Eunice Swoveland
Date of Birth: Sunday, December 03, 1939
Date of Death: Thursday, July 23, 2020

Gwendolyn Eunice Swoveland of Vidalia, LA passed away Thursday, July 23, 2020. Due to
continued issues with Co-vid and protection of family members, there will only be a private
family gathering at this time. Gwen was born December 3, 1939 and passed away at Merit
Health Hospital in Natchez, Thursday, July 23, 2020, after a lengthy battle with dementia. She is
proceeded in death by her father, Charles “C.L.” Sturgeon, and mother, Martha Sturgeon. She is
survived by her husband, Joe, “Mr. Joe” Swoveland, Sr.; son, Joe “Little Joe” Swoveland, Jr,
both of Vidalia, LA; daughter Stacy Swoveland of Centerville, MS; granddaughter, Kallie
Swoveland of Vidalia, LA; and great-granddaughter, Kaylen Swoveland, also of Vidalia, LA.

Gwen was born in Natchez, MS and resided her entire life in Vidalia, LA. She married her
husband Joe shortly after high school. Throughout the years, she worked a variety of jobs such
as a telephone operator (number, please), ward clerk, secretary, and shop owner, as well as
several other jobs throughout the years. However, the job she was best at was taking care of her
family. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was quick to
light up a room with her smile, and those who befriended her knew they were loved.

The family would like to thank Dr. Charles Borum and his staff, as well as Adams County
Nursing Center for caring for our loved one. We would also like to thank all the residents at
Adams County Nursing Center (and their families), who became our family, for also helping to
love and aid our mother. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
