Sarah Michelle Buchanan

Halifax Chronicle Herald 02/14/2013

BUCHANAN, Sarah Michelle - 35, Truro Heights. Our family is deeply saddened to share the news that our precious daughter 'Princess' Sarah has passed away. She was truly a 'fighter' all the way with a lifelong battle with Cystic Fibrosis and finally cancer, loosing her second round with cancer on February 10, 2013, in the Palliative Care Unit, Truro. While her death came too soon, she was a 'free spirit' in life and very much marched to the beat of her own drum. She had a passion for animals, friends and creative expression in fashion, art and decorating. She loved to be near the water and nature, sharing time with friends and trying new adventures. Born in Truro on April 19, 1977, Sarah is survived by her parents, Glenn and Debbie (Colpitts) Buchanan, East Vil­lage; brother, Trevor (Reta); niece, Marissa, British Columbia. Her family would like to extend a special 'thank you' to the wonderful people in the Palliative Care Unit at Colchester East Hants Health Centre for their care and compassion and also for the love and compassion from family and friends. Cremation has taken place. There will be a celebration of her life for friends and family to gather to remember Sarah on Saturday, February 16, from 2-4 p.m. in Colchester Com­munity Funeral Home, 512 Willow St., Truro. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Cystic Fibrosis Foun­dation of Canada or charity of your choice. On-line condolences and dona­tions may be made at: www.colchestercommunity.com
