HURLOCK — On Good Friday, March 25, 2016, Heather Jean Swann of Hurlock, MD, passed away after a very courageous battle with cancer at University of Maryland Shore Medical Center at Easton, surrounded by family and friends.
She was born Oct. 6, 1977 in Easton, daughter of the late Edward Duncan Colquhoun and Donna Lynn Tarrell Colqhoun. She loved her four children; Tyler, age 18, Alyssa, age 17, Nate, age 9, and Micah, age 7, and her husband of 17 years, Michael. She is also sur vived by two brothers, John E. Colquhoun of Federalsburg and Daniel Abrams of Millsboro.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two brothers, Edward Colquhoun and Bryan Colquhoun.
Heather was a true Christian who served her Lord by serving others and sharing the Gospel with so many. She was an active member of Grace Baptist Church in Hurlock, helping in many areas especially with the youth programs. She was the kind of person that to know her was to love her. She had the ability to make so many strong relationships with her compassionate and caring ways. After being diagnosed with a rare type of breast cancer, Heather made it her mission to make others aware of the importance of the BRCA genetic testing to prevent others from having to fight this same battle. She lived a life that was filled with love, laughter, and true faith. She is greatly missed by her family, friends, and community.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, April 2, 3 p.m. at Grace Baptist Church in Hurlock, where the family will receive friends from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. Pastor David Talley will officiate.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to M&T Bank, Michael W. Swann, Swann Kids Donations, 405 Sunburst Highway, Cambridge, MD 21613.
Arrangements are in the care of Zeller Funeral Home in East New Market.
