Colleen passed away peacefully on Valentines Day after a courageous battle with breast cancer. She will forever be in the hearts of her children Todd (Sheila), Carrie, Lisa (Ron), Jason (Gill), and grandchildren Taylor, Jake, Sorcha, Ben, Miranda, and Cole.
She was predeceased by her husband Stanley, mother Irene, father Delmar and survived by brothers Eric, Edward, Dale and sister Bonnie. Colleen was the calm in any storm, always level-headed, kind and compassionate. She volunteered for many years with the BC Lupus Society. In the end, it was the volunteers and staff at Hospice House in Vernon who provided comfort in her final days. No service by request. In lieu of flowers, donations to the North Okanagan Hospice Society or the BC Lupus Society would be gratefully appreciated.
