Cousin Colleen was a very good hearted person and a good and loyal friend, with, at times, very strong opinions.

She dearly loved her children and grandchildren and was fiercely protective of them under any circumstances.

We will sincerely miss her.

Rest in Peace Dear Cousin,

Dennis and Lynda Norsworthy

I had the pleasure of working with Colleen back in the good old Chedoke-McMaster days. She embraced life, laughter and loved her family unconditionally.

My condolences on your loss. Cherish the beautiful memories always.
