Born 6 weeks early on July 26th, 1984, Colleen Marie Anderson entered the world with gorgeous auburn hair, one green eye and one brown. She had parents who loved her deeply, Tom and Paula; and two adoring big siblings, David and Rena. Four years later she also became a big sister to one of her favorite people ever, her brother Brian.
Colleen loved her children, dessert, books, candy, and nieces & nephews. She was thrilled to gain two sisters-in-law, Sara and Tatiana and one brother-in-law, Eric. She also had many Aunts, Uncles and cousins who have sweet memories of her shining spirit.
Her life was filled with pain but she still found joy in little things that kept her going. Time with her son, Jimmy, video chats with her daughter, Audrey, visiting family, yummy food, laughing about funny memories, reading a good book & meeting new people.
Colleen taught us to be kind because you never know the inner battles someone is facing. She fought for 36 years but was tired. As much as her family wanted her here, Heaven is where she belongs; this earth was just too difficult for her. She knows James & Audrey are well taken care of and so loved. God took away her pain and suffering and is keeping her until it’s our time to hug her again, hear her laugh and see her smile. Thank you, Colleen, for giving us everything you could and for now being a beautiful angel watching over us. We love you.
