Reagan Leigh-Marie Szurek, 40, of Hebron, passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, February 18, 2021. Born June 18, 1980 in Hartford; she was the daughter of Stanley “Bud” Szurek, and Cynthia (Towne) Szurek. Reagan was a graduate of RHAM high school and attended Manchester Community College. She was well known and active throughout the Hebron community. Reagan had volunteered at Camp Hemlocks (Easterseals of Oak Hill) and various Church and local child daycare facilities in the past. As a member of the Girl Scouts she was awarded the Girl Scouts Silver Award for her work for the Hebron Historical Society surrounding the documentation of the Burrows Hill Cemetery. Reagan’s sense of humor and warm heart always left everyone she met with a smile. She was a kind hearted soul who loved animals. Growing up, animals would always seem to find their way into her heart and sometimes into her home. Although she loved her hometown she traveled as often as she could and had visited places like England, and Italy. Family meant everything to Reagan, she was a devoted and loving aunt and Godmother to her niece and nephew. Cooking brought joy to Reagan and she would always find a way to make an old recipe better. She had a passion for her family history, and had managed to successfully trace back her lineage to ancestors in the 1400’s. She will be forever loved and remembered by her parents Stanley and Cynthia Szurek of Hebron; her brother Gregory J. Szurek and his wife Katie of Amston; and her niece and nephew Kaleigh and Patrick. A celebration of Reagan’s life is scheduled for Saturday, February 27th from 2 to 4 PM at the Aurora McCarthy Funeral Home 167 Old Hartford Rd., Colchester. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 22, at 11 AM directly at the Church of the Holy Family, 185 Church St, Amston, CT 06231. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made in Reagan’s name to the Hebron Volunteer Fire Department, the Make a Wish Foundation, or to Protectors of Animals or the ASPCA.
