Nancy DeFelice Kollenburn Obituary
September 25, 1950 - January 28, 2016 Nancy Jean DeFelice Kollenburn passed away peacefully on January 28th after a massive heart attack. She was devoted to her family, her church, and her "kids" from many years of being a teacher's aide at several valley schools, including 20 years at Calabash Elementary in Woodland Hills & most recently St. Jude's Catholic School in Westlake. A graduate of St. Augustine's & St. Bernard's, she married Bill Kollenburn in 1968, loving husband of 47 years, and settled in Canoga Park in 1976. Her world was her family: children Billy (Julie), Christopher, and Kimberly; granddaughters Kaylin (whom she raised), Megan and Rayven. Nancy was active at Our Lady of the Valley School, and even 20 years later after her family was grown, you could still find Nancy decorating the hall for an upcoming event or school dance. Nancy was surrounded by a close knit flock of relatives, including beloved Mother Irene DeFelice; loving siblings Linda Brown (Stanley Dunn), Beverly (Dominic) Borra, & Sammy (Sue) DeFelice; nieces Angie (Jarid) Boyce, Debbie (Lyndon) Floyd, Heather & Evie DeFelice, Lisa Johnson; nephews David (Deborah), Stephen (Tara) & Michael (Sarah) Brown; Jesse DeFelice & Kyle & Brett Cote. "Nanny" will be missed by the many other grandkids in the family, including: Sophia & Lucas Boyce; Logan & Jackson Floyd; Justin Conway & Lydia Johnson; Brooke, Breanna & Ellie Brown; Sawyer DeFelice; and by the many kindergarten, first & second grade kids she has mentored for so many years. Memorial service will be held at Our Lady of the Valley in Canoga Park on Wednesday, February 3rd at 10:30 am followed by a Celebration of Life in the church hall, with private interment at Holy Cross held on Friday, February 5th.
