We worked with Colleen at the Evergreen House. She was so knowledgable and such a hard worker. We always enjoyed working with her and learning from her. May God wrap His loving arms around the family and give you comfort.

I enjoyed knowing Colleen and working with her at the Evergreen Greenhouse. We also both belonged to the Rebecca Winters Genealogy Society. She was a dear friend. I extend my deepest sympathy.
