In her free time, she enjoyed ceramics, reading, bowling and going to oldies concerts, but always cherished any and every opportunity to get together with family. An incredibly loving person, Colleen was also a courageous fighter. In recent years, she proved her strength over and over as she bravely battled one physical complication after another. It didn’t matter what the problem was, whether it was trouble with her heart or difficulty breathing, whenever you asked how she was doing, she always replied, “Okie-dokie.”
