    There is no doubt that Colleen will be missed by many. She was such a bubbly, loving and hospitable sister and friend. Just being around her lifted my spirits and now my memories of time spent with her will do the same. I look forward to seeing her again in the near future! 💕

    It is with extreme sadness that we post this condolence today for our sister-in-law Colleen. Life circumstances placed us in different places apart many years ago , but as others have said and spoken so well of her , it is now so comforting for us to read how many others welcomed her into their families and hearts and lives. To read her on-line tributes from those who knew and loved her best over those later brief years , gave us both a window of insight and understanding into the ‘role of care coupled with compassion’ that she offered to so many around her after she moved to Barrie. We are both grateful for the time we were given early ‘ in all of our journeys’ to walk beside you as a friend and sister to us. Time here is fleeting . We are only given a small amount of it which is limited and quickly often depleted without warning or knowledge of when or how that will happen. But those moments for us both that Colleen shared with us will remain filled with mutual gratitude and thankfulness for the time we shared while together. As for us, we will remember our times with er fondly and are comforted at this writing that your battles here are done. Our prayer for you and ourselves remain hopefully steadfast as we look forward with to these words of Jesus: “Well done my good and faithful servant”.

    Our dear sister, we will always remember you in our hearts and look forward to seeing you again soon in the coming new world.

    Some people in life leave a gap that can only be filled by them, and Colleen was certainly one such person.
    A beautiful and kind heart and always a smile.

    May Jehovah be with all you friends and family who are saddened by her passing.
