    Colleen was a sweetheart, a fighter and a damn good neighbor. She will be sorely missed

  • Fred & Lori Cooper

    Colleen and Greg were among the first of our great neighbors to introduce themselves shortly after we moved in to our house…2 east of theirs…in October, 1991. Over the years, we shared a lot about family, friends, the neighborhood and other things that neighbors who become friends discuss. A sad day when we were told of Coleen’s departure but her smiles, laugh and true spirit of friendliness will remain. Our condolences to Greg and the family she leaves behind.

  • Condolences to friends and family for the loss of a beautiful lady who has left us all too soon. Greg and Colleen have been neighbors for over 30 years. We will miss seeing her on daily walks, donned in her “cowgirl” hat, and always smiling. May you rest in peace as we celebrate your life.

  • My heart breaks for your loss of sweet Colleen. We loved stopping at chatting as we went on our walks with the grandkids or Lucy! I will miss seeing her in her cowboy hat and her great smile! Greg, you are in my prayers! Much love to you!

    We’ll miss you on your walks and our talks around the neighborhood.
