Colleen enjoyed life, loved styling hair and her large Irish family. She had a heart of gold and a beautiful smile. Her family will miss her laugh and visits to Minnesota over the many years she lived there. She will be dearly missed.
A special thank you to the nurses and staff at New Challenges & Southview Acres and Aunt Vera (Holland) Finley for her many prayers and cards to Colleen.
