VIRGINIA BEACH—Heaven Kathryne van den Ende McQuillen, 26, of Virginia Beach, formerly of Chance, passed away on Tuesday, August 25, 2020.
Heaven grew up in Essex County, and was a lifelong equine enthusiast. Her love for horses was paralleled only by her love for the water. These two passions were a reflection of the unmistakable and untamable spirit she possessed.
She is survived by her son, Tugston Bay McQuillen; her parents, Hellana van den Ende of Tappahannock and John Vance of Chance; three siblings, Legend van den Ende of Chance, Jewel van den Ende of Tappahannock and Freedom van den Ende of Chance; maternal grandmother, Birtha van den Ende of Norfolk; maternal grandfather, Alexander van den Ende of Virginia Beach; paternal grandmother, Gayle Allen of Tappahannock; aunt, Candi Nabi of West Virginia; uncles, Charles van den Ende of Norfolk and Shauwn van den Ende of Virginia Beach; and a number of cousins, extended family, and friends.
A funeral service was held 3 p.m. Saturday, August 29, in the Faulkner Funeral Homes, Marks-Bristow Chapel, Tappahannock, with the Reverend S. Roy Foster officiating. Interment was private.
