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.
