It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our daughter, sister, and loving wife to Cetin, her husband.

Colleen Janna Belli will remembered and so missed by her husband Cetin, mother Jane Pettersen (Fred), father Gerry Carron, sister Lindsay Baertl (Doug), brother Tyler Carron (Jaclyn), and her Oma, HJ Vandelaak, sisters Heidi Wiebe and Kirsten MacLeod, and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

A celebration of Colleen's life will be held at Woodlawn Mt. Cheam Funeral Home on Tuesday, December 3, 2019 at 1:30 pm.

In lieu of flowers, donations to Union Gospel Mission would be greatly appreciated. Colleen lived and helped many people in this area.

Thank you all so very much for your love, support and prayers for a miracle, but God chose to bring Colleen home to Him. The feelings of gratitude we have for the paramedics and ICU staff at Vancouver General Hospital can cannot begin to be expressed in words. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your dedication and compassion at the saddest of times.

We took a trip to Chilliwack as a surprise for Jane on her 65th birthday. Colleen wouldn’t allow us to get a taxi and said she would meet us at the airport. Colleen being Colleen, greeted us in her own special way. Oh my goodness, we laughed so hard
What an amazing, wonderful and humble woman. We are so grateful to have had the privilege and honour to have known such a bright light in this world. She has given everybody that knew her the best gift that can be given, wonderful memories. Thank you Colleen.

Colleen was our niece and will be forever remembered for her joie de vie, her love of animals, and her goodness towards the less fortunate; she did so many acts of kindness for others. She was immensely creative, loved arts and crafts and shared her gifts with everyone. Colleen had a wonderful sense of humour, especially about herself and her follies.
She deeply loved Cetin as he, in turn, loved her. They were a great team together.
Colleen will be deeply missed but will be forever in our hearts.

Colleen was a wonderful woman with a heart of gold. Colleen's sense of humour left us in "stitches" many times. Years ago Colleen came camping with us and the mosquitoes were horrendous. She sat outside in a lawn chair and sprayed insect repellant everywhere but on herself. Asking her why she wouldn't spray herself but rather the air, she laughed and said she didn't want that smelly stuff on her. Needless to say, Colleen was bitten many, many times. Prior to marrying Cetin, she sent us a beautiful letter saying how much in love she was with Cetin, that she had found "her soul mate". Though we never saw Colleen much due to distance in travel, she will always remain in our hearts forever, forever loved and remembered for her joy for life. Uncle Ray and Aunt Jo
