Sarah “Sally” Swain

Corcoran born June 15, 1941

in Oxford, England, died

April 25, 2010 in Oviedo,

Fla.

One of three daughters,

Sally lived in England and

Egypt as a child during

WWII. She moved to the

Washington DC area with

her family when she was 8

yrs old. She attended Holton-

Arms School and Washington

School for Secretaries. As

an adult, Sally moved to the

Chicago area with her husband

and son. She also lived

in Gainesville, Fla., Easley

and most recently, moved to

Oviedo, Fla. to be closer to

her son and his family. It was

in Oviedo where she finally

succumbed to cancer, going

peacefully from life on earth

to eternal life in Heaven.

Sally expressed a strong

faith in God and a strong devotion

to family and friends.

After her husband died, she

raised her son as a single par-

ent from the time he was 13,

cared for her father during

the 2 years before his death,

and lived with her mother for

over 15 years in order to care

for her in her declining years.

She made care-giving a large

part of her life. Though she

had only one son, she became

a “Mother” and a “Grandmother”

to so many.

It was during her time in

Gainesville, Fla. that she

deepened her relationship

with Christ and accepted

Him as her Lord and Savior.

She was an active mem-

ber of Creekside Community

Church in Gainesville,

Fla. and Community Bible

Church in Easley. Sally was

gifted with a humble confidence.

She was known for

providing for others in their

need.

After devoting her entire

life to giving, Sally had to

allow herself to receive in

her last days. Possibly her

greatest challenge was to allow

others to help and care

for her as she had done for

so many. Even as a young

child, Sally started using the

phrase, “Sally Manage.” It

was a family joke but turned

out to be so true of her character.

After battling breast

cancer in 2008, she was diagnosed

in late 2009 with lung

cancer. She was surrounded

by her beloved son, daughter-in-law,

grandchildren and

sisters. By the end of her life,

she was able to let go and

just be. There was nothing

left that she needed to do or

manage.

Administration.

Abercrombie, Bachelor of

Science in Human Services;

Sally is survived by her

and his wife, Bernadette;

her two grandchildren, Alexandria
