Nancy J. Brasser – May 25, 2014

Bloomfield: May 25, 2014 at age 79. Predeceased by her husband Russell Brasser, her son Steven Shaw, and her grandson James Shaw. Survived by her children: Larry (Mary) Shaw of NB, Lynn (William) Magorka of Honeoye Falls, Gary (Mary Ann) Shaw of Farmington, Donald (Betsy) Shaw of Hemlock, and Debbie (Ken) Stiles of Henrietta. Her aunt Joyce (David) Beckley, 11 grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren, and 4 great-great grandchildren.

Nancy, So many words come to mind when thinking of her…Her love of lighthouses, the sea, fishing and shells, her rock collections, mac and cheese, Christmas, dancing, and her love of animals. Anyone who knew Nancy knew the most important thing to her was and always will be her family. A mother of 6, grandmother of 11, great grandmother of 13 and a great great grandmother of 4, Nancy devoted her time to being involved with her family and insisted on doing it with a style like no other. I truly believe the only way to get hurt in this life is to care. Nancy cared more than most, loved more than most and was made to suffer more than most because of just how much she cared. No matter what she was faced with in life, there were never any complaints or bitterness… She just loved and she loved with everything she had. The memories that are attached to this woman and her life cannot be broken down in to any small statement, Nancy lived life loud, colorful, flashy and full of sequins. She lived brave and never let anything stop her from being her true self. Her sassy outspoken attitude was her way of life and because of that so many of us have learned to smile through the hardest times. So, Nancy, for your love, wisdom, patience, compassion and tenderness, and all of the sass; Thank you. Fancy Nancy, after you, the mold was indeed broken. You will be deeply missed, but we will all continue on dancing like you would have wanted us to.

Friends may call on Saturday, June 7, 2014 from 2-4pm at the Kevin W. Dougherty Funeral Home Inc., 21 Big Tree Street, Rte 15 & 20A, Livonia where services will follow calling at 4pm. Rev.

Graydon N. Swanson – May 26, 2014

Canandaigua: May 26, 2014 at age 64. Survived by his wife of 36 years Nancy (Becker) Swanson. Children; Christina Swanson of Boston, MA and Neil Swanson of Canadice. Brother Gaylord (Alison) Swanson of Clarksville, and Niece Stacey Swanson of Albany. Graydon was a US Navy Veteran, a loving husband and caring father. He will be remembered for his warm and wonderful sense of humor.

Graydon N. Swanson was born on September 26th, 1949 to parents Lois and Oscar Swanson of Frewsburg, NY. Early on he had diverse interests, enjoying everything from music and tap dancing to car repair, shooting and a bit of pyromania. Graydon attended Frewsburg High School where he ran track and was part of the debate team. He is most remembered in high school for helping his friend Jim, who was partially handicapped from Polio, move from class to class.

Graydon attended The College at Brockport earning a degree in Earth Science. Afterwards, he had hoped to complete a doctorate in geology, but ended up joining the United States Navy during the Vietnam War. Graydon served 14 years in the US Navy as a Supply Corp officer. The Navy took him to many exciting places including tours in Egypt, the Philippines, Antarctica and Italy. From these travels, he collected many stories and a couple treasures.

By far the best treasure that Graydon “collected” on his journey was his wife Nancy Swanson. Graydon and Nancy met early on at the edge of the Erie Canal just a few months after he had graduated from college and she had begun. Nancy had a term paper to write on the canal. Graydon was working on the canal for a few months. A conversation began. A double date was suggested. A spark was stirred. And six years later, marriage was proposed.

While life bumped happily along for a while, the quiet was not to last. At the age of 30, Graydon was out running on the track and his left leg gave out. This happened again and again. He mentioned it to his doctor, who referred him to a Neurologist. Without the modern day MRIs, six years passed before the doctors could confirm he had Multiple Sclerosis (MS). While MS would eventually steal his mobility, his independence, and eventually his life, it was this grave struggle that also highlighted Nancy and Graydon’s strength as a couple and as individuals.

During this time, Graydon and Nancy raised two children, Neil Swanson of Springwater, NY and Christina Swanson of Boston, MA. Although struggling with the symptoms of his disease and his decreasing mobility, Graydon dutifully took care of the children while Nancy worked full-time for the US Navy. He helped them write books, complete homework, build tree forts and learn how to swim. He even learned how to braid hair! But as Graydon’s condition worsened, the tables turned and Nancy, Christina and Neil began to care for him. During his final years, Nancy cared for him daily in their home demonstrating the meaning of unconditional love. Together they remained optimistic and faced the hardships of the disease with humor and love.

As a loyal husband, a loving father, and a Naval veteran, Graydon N. Swanson will be dearly missed.

His funeral service will be held on Saturday, May 31, 2014, at 11am at the Canadice Methodist Church, 5949 Canadice Hill Road, Canadice, NY. Pastor Juls Foos and Chaplain Pamula Royal will be officiating. Burial with full military honors will be held at the Canadice Hill Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to the Canadice Hill Cemetery Association, C/o Joan Hardy, 4473 Cty Road 33, Honeoye, NY 14471, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, 1650 South Ave #100, Rochester, NY 14620 or the Canandaigua VA General Purpose Fund, 400 Fort Hill Ave, Canandaigua, NY 14424.

Conesus: May 22, 2014 at age 64 years. Survived by his wife, Lynne; children, Rebecca, Zachary, Kevin & Jennifer. sister, Elaine (Ed) Henning. many dear friends & relatives.

Jerry from a very young age loved the outdoors. He spent as much time there as he could, watching the clouds go by, listening to the birds sing, trying to identify the species. Walking in the woods, fishing, hunting, whatever it took to find his “peaceful place”. He became a tour guide in Montana, taking people on hunting expeditions for elk, deer, bear whatever they wanted all while riding a horse and camping under the stars. After he became disabled he continued to do what he loved even though many times it became difficult, using a golf cart for mobility he still hunted. He became a wildlife rehabilitator, caring for orphaned or injured wildlife, he even had a cat (Quazi) that was “different” and they had a special bond. He took in birds, turtles, squirrels, etc. but as everyone who knew him, his favorite were the fawns. He cared for one two days before his death. We know he is in heaven accepting all the animals that have passed and know he can now walk in the woods, listen to the birds all without being in pain. He will always be in our hearts and there will not be a day that goes by that we won’t think of him. May he rest in his “peaceful place”. Love you always Lynne, Rebecca and Zachary
