Colleen was a devout Christian and a dedicated prayer warrior. Selfless to a fault, at age 21 she took on the task of raising 5 younger siblings after the death of her mother. She enjoyed time spent with family, especially during the holidays. She reveled in the accomplishments of nieces, nephews, and grandchildren. In her younger days, she was employed by the Evening Chronicle, MOLO Regional Library System, and the Society for Equal Access (SEA).

Memorial contributions can be made to Truman Community Hospice House of New Philadelphia. There will be no public visitation. A private family memorial service will be held at a later date.
