So very sorry to hear. She was a sweet lady and hard worker I loves seeing her come into the nursing home I worked at to take care of her residents. She was so kind, caring, and giving. R.I.P Colleen you will be missed dearly and my condolences to the family.

Colleen exemplified the concept of being a "servant-leader" in the care that she administered to patients in hospice. The act of providing care was not enough for her. She always attempted to engage her patients, even those who could not verbalize what they thought & felt. She KNEW her patients and families she served & was beloved by her Bridges Home Healthcare & Hospice of Medina/Western Reserve team members. Our thoughts, prayers, & love to her family. See you on the other side, girl...

Colleen was one of the nicest, most concerned and caring person so it was easy to talk to her and enjoy that beautiful smile. She shared the pew with me or was right behind me every Sunday. You can go through life and never understand why or how things happen but I believe my life has been better knowing Colleen and it is a God thing he allowed me to have the opportunity to be a part of this church family that she was a part of.

She sat behind me at church on Sundays. We gave each other huge hugs.. I always asked how she was and she didn't say much.. She was a beautiful person. Never got to get to know her too well. I am in total SHOCK. May the grace of God be with her as she continues on in heaven.. Love Cathy
