2021 Did not start off the way any of us planned.
The world lost a beautiful, loving, and caring individual yesterday in a serious
accident! As friends and colleagues of Colleen,
we would like to show our condolences by
setting up a go fund me account to help ease
any financial stressors that may arise during this difficult time for her family!
Colleen left behind a husband, 3 daughters, and 5 grandchildren all under the age of 10. Any amount will help this family cover the costs of this unforeseen tragic
accident, as they were obviously not financially prepared for this.

Thank You!
