  1. Thinking of your families today as I read of Swannee’s passing. My memories of this most gracious Lady began in the 50’s in Eastridge, followed by the many trips w/State Farm (Vegas, The Broadmoore, overseas with Dad, but not Margie, her hosting Ed & I while in California for my brother David’s wedding where she got me hooked on Mary Kay by giving me my first facial and lastly…hosting me again during a stint @ the Westlake office in ’87! With heartfelt sympathy to all, ❤️Pamela (Orcutt) Trehearn ~ Lincoln Ne
