Bergsten, Colleen Rae
53 of Glendale, AZ, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend passed away suddenly on March 19, 2016. She was born in Elkhorn, WI to Barbara Lovig White and Norman Pickering on October 11, 1962. She married Stephen Bergsten December 1, 1990 and is survived by her husband Steve, children Tyler and Rachel, parents Barbara and Bill White, sister Angela, and several nieces and nephews. Colleen, a faithful Christian, was graceful, kind, compassionate, humble, and a light to anyone who met her. She was an ASU alumnus. Colleen was a legal secretary for the Gallagher and Kennedy law firm for over 25 years and was loved and respected by her co-workers. She lived life daily. It was her faith, indomitable spirit, and perseverance that helped her triumph over cancer for 22 years. The consistent opinion of the people who knew her was that she was the nicest, most selfless, sweetest, kindest person they had ever met... and there wasn't even a close second. "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me": Philippians 4:13 We will miss you - Your family and friends. In Lieu of flowers donations can be made to Arizona Assistance in Healthcare. Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, March 26, 2016 at 10:00am at West Resthaven Funeral Home 6450 W. Northern Ave. Glendale AZ 85301
