    So very sorry Coleen has left us so soon. She was such a giving and loving person. We were cousins but also nursing colleagues. She has given us so many wonderful family memories and will be missed by not only her family and friends but also by the many lives she stepped in and touched as a nurse. I Carol, her cousin would like to honor and remember her today too as the amazing nurse she was. Her work here is done and now she is an angel in heaven....sending love and prayers to all

    Coleen was a wonderful niece and friend. We will always remember the fun we shared at any holiday time or family get together. She was also an excellent cook and care giver. She will be missed so much.
