Colleen you will dearly be missed! You had some really good times with you and your family, the many times we would share a Sunday afternoon with you!
I was so glad that Greg and I came down to visited with you, just a few weeks ago. We really enjoyed our visit, yet not knowing that would be the last time. May you now rest in peace, with the Lord
Your are our the best
God bless you!

Colleen was my Great Aunt. She was such a wonderful person with such a big heart. My favorite memories are going into Harding's and seeing her and she always had to come around to give me a hug. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

I had the pleasure of working with Colleen at Harding's. She was always the sweetest. I have the worst memory but I think she started at Harding's on my son's birth date. I remember her always talking about that it was her anniversary date the same day. R.I.P. dear Colleen. Prayers to the family.

Colleen..
was one of my mother's closest friends. I can't remember a time that Colleen wasn't in my life. We worked together at Hardings for many years. She was like another "mom" to me the sweety lady ever. She was loved my both of my boys and I think the last time I got to see her was Trent's grad party. RIP you will be missed by so many people my friend.

I worked with Colleen at Hardings. We enjoyed a few concerts in the park together . She was always nice and I got to spend Christmas Eve with her family many years ago. She was a very nice lady. I pray for her family for their loss which is especially hard this time of year. She will be missed.
