Dear Anne, Bryce Jamie, Matt
HI, I remember first meeting Colleen in a gym (of course). Lindsay and Anne on different teams:, both of us hoping for the best for “our” team but encouraging all. Always a smile, kind words for everyone. She showed such grace in adversity, always asking about how everyone else was doing. Your mom was such an inspiration to me, wonderful faith and love of God. My most wonderful memory is her holding up the basketball this past Jan in the St FX gym, not a dry eye in the place. She showed such strength stamina and courage, (and the support from everyone in the gym was awesome!!) God Bless
Hugs from Bev and Dave Harris (New Minas)

I knew Colleen through my former job at Summit Spa. She was one of my absolute favorite clients, who always had a warm smile and a laugh for everyone. I was very sorry to hear she had lost her battle against cancer, and want to send my deepest sympathies to her family and friends during this difficult time.
She was an amazing woman, and will be sorrily missed by many.

I was lucky enough to have Colleen as a professor during my four years at Dal School of Nursing. She was passionate about nursing, life, her family and her students. She was enthusiastic, supportive and gave so much of herself to her students. I am deeply sorry for your loss.

Colleen was a wonderfully intelligent, funny and loving human being. Her time at Queen's only served to demonstrate to others how exceptional she was, not only in the field of nursing but also as a warm and welcoming human being, Bryce, Matt, Jamie and Anne - may your wonderful memories give you solace during this difficult time. She will be truly missed.

Dear Bryce, Matt, Jamie and Anne,

Kind, thoughtful, nurturing and selfless – just a few words that describe your wife and mom. Although I only met Colleen six years ago when she volunteered to be the manager of the Nova Scotia U15 basketball team, I feel like we've been friends all our lives. That's just the type of person she was. We shared some great conversations over lunch during the past few years and it was evident her family was the centre of her universe.
