Visitation is from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29, at DeRoo Funeral Home, Moline, where a prayer service will be held at 6 p.m. Memorials may be made to the family for a fund to be established.
Heather was born on Jan. 11, 1976, in Rock Island, the daughter of Timothy G. Ryan and Cathy Hantz.
She loved being with her family and friends. Heather was an artist, played the flute and liked country music and was a talented softball player. As an act of kindness and true compassion for others, Heather requested to be an organ donor. Because of this, she will continue to help countless families in need.
