Colleen F. Harmon

have a memory or condolence to add?


February 12, 2019

On behalf of my dad, Colleen's oldest brother. We were so excited for our annual visit with my dad's family. I remember constant laughter and storytelling. In recent years, Colleen would laugh so hard about my dad's adventures...her favorite, was telling others, that her brother was a Professional Wrestler, which also included matches with BEARS! It was true! My childhood memory was having a 'COOL AUNT' that had THE BEATLES posters in her room! my favorite was 'PAUL". Hers was "GEORGE". Proud to have inherited the genetic HUMOR that, no doubt came from Dad's family.

You were the big sister I never had. I will always remember the strength and love you gave to me. Until we meet again...I love you more! Your niece Debbie

I love you so much Colleen. I know you are in Heaven with all our loved ones that have gone before you. I will never forget when Fred and I were dating we would always want to take you on our dates and people would ask us if you were our little girl and I would say no this is my baby sister. We would just laugh. You brought more joy in my life then you will ever know. I will never forget you. Until we meet again, I love you and will always cherish you baby sister. Your big sis Pat.

Colleen was my neighbor and friend for over 25 years. She was a caring loving lady. Beautiful from the inside out. She will never be forgotten. We had many happy times together at the instantaneous pool parties my husband would arrange , the NASCAR races we watched together and the many times she and Lou came for Thanksgiving dinner. May she Rest In Peace .

Growing up 3yrs her Junior and the "baby brother", she as "baby dumplin" me as (Dennis the menace), you can probably guess the pull she had. She would get me in trouble for things she had done. As much as that hurt (and boy it did ), I still adored her. I have felt that way my entire life. Can't tell you how much we laughed at that through the years. When I called or text her over time I would end with I love you so much Colleen. Her answer would be "I know, I feel it". I Still Do! Swim free Dumplin Dolphin.

One of the best sister inlaws a person could ask for. Funny, onery, kind, and oh what a beauty. My husbands best friend in the world. Such a honor to have known her. May you swim with those dolphins you loved so much. And since saying goodby was something you insisted never be said, I will say, I will see you when I see you Tootie .
