Heather Galvin, 44
of Nevada City (Cascade Shores) passed away on Monday, Sept. 29th, after an intense battle with breast cancer, with her family at her side.
Heather was born to William and Sharon Hogan in 1970, graduated from Amador Valley High in 1988, earned a Science Degree in Vet Technology 1991, and received a BS degree in Zoology from Cal State University (Pomona) in 1995. She married Sean Jordan 1992-2004, and had two beautiful daughters. She was then married to Tom Glavin from 2006-2011, and had another beautiful little girl.
Heather's love and dedication to animals followed both her personal and professional life. She was a passionate horse lover and accomplished equestrian. She shared this love with daughter Kaitlyn, and taught riding lessons at Oaktree Farms (Grass Valley). She was active in all her children's activities.
Recently she enjoyed a Hawaiian vacation with her daughters and mother, where they shared the incredible experience of snorkeling with sea turtles.
Heather lost her father William to cancer a few years ago. She is survived by mother Sharon, brothers Scot Hogan and Kevin Hogan, and her beautiful young daughers, Kelly, Kaitlyn and Kiera (Cascade Shores) and many friends and admirers of her courage in this final challenge.
A celebration of life will be held from 1pm-4pm this Saturday, 10/4/14 at the Cascade Shores Firehouse, 16552 Pasquale Rd. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to a cancer foundation of your choice.
Prayers and love to the Hogan/Galvin family.
