Colleen worked in responsible positions at the Department of Community Affairs and Department Of Economic Opportunity for 45 years for the state of Florida. Her coworkers remember her as kind and thoughtful and a wonderful mentor to younger staff. Those that knew her well thought of her as a beautiful person and she truly was. Colleen loved her family and friends and enjoyed doing special things for them. She was always putting others first and lived by the Golden Rule. She loved her pets, movies, music, perfume, dining out and she loved to dance. Colleen was the oldest of five children but so much younger in spirit.
