Fallen Warrior

Dr. Donna Swagers

Dr. Donna Lynn Swagers (1945-2021), elementary principal at ASW from 2002-2008, passed away on September 30, 2021. After growing up in Seattle, WA, USA, she found her true calling as an educator, spending 30+ years in education as a teacher, principal, director, and mentor to many students, teachers, and families. Being an educator took Donna to many different regions in Washington and ultimately to Warsaw. Donna regarded her time as an educator in Poland as the adventure of a lifetime.

Over the years Donna enjoyed sailing, boating, riding motorcycles, and being a member of various organizations. She especially loved her Harley dog.

She was married to the love of her life Peter Swagers for 20+ years. Peter was security coordinator at ASW during Dr. Swagers tenure at ASW. In their retirement, they decided to reside on Camano Island and enjoyed traveling in their motorhome.

Donna was preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her husband Peter, son Chad Hudson, and her two grandsons Austin and Ryan Hudson. Donna has been laid to rest and the family is going to have a memorial gathering this coming Saturday in Seattle.

Thoughts for the family can be forwarded to the Director’s Office for compilation into a memory book that will be sent to the family at a later date. You can send them to the school, forward via email to director@aswarsaw.org, or simply add a comment to this post on Zimplicity.
