She worked many years as an accomplished psychiatric RN and had a passion for helping and advocating for those most vulnerable in our society.

Colleen loved her family, friends, riding horses, reading, walking on the beach, and living life to the fullest with a strong faith in God. She impacted many people's lives and will not be forgotten.

Colleen is survived by her daughter, Amy Johnson and her husband Dave; 4 grandchildren, Hailey and Samantha Foley and Alexis and Raegan Johnson; her sister Patty Smith; and her brother Tim Smith and his wife Esther.

She was preceded in death by her father, Jack Lemmon; her mother and stepfather, Charlene and Clarice Smith; her daughter Shauna Marie Lemmon; her sister Susan Smith; and her Grandparents Proctor and Thelma Butler and Clifford and Minnie Lemmon.
