I will always remember your humor and how much fun it was to work with you at Lynn's. I hate that you are gone but happy that you are no longer in pain. You fought a good fight. My prayers go out to her whole family at this difficult time. Rest easy Colette!

I am so sorry for your loss. She was SO brave. And now she is peaceful. I know that doesn't help much with your heartache. I loved her smile, her infectious laugh, her strong spirit, her sense of humor, her caring heart and her love for her family. That picture is Colette! That smile, those bright eyes. Love you. Hugs. So Sorry! Praying. MK

Joe and family, Denny and I met you all as neighbors on Blvd. St. in 2002. Tre' was 5 and hung out at our house daily, knowing there were treats in the freezer! Colette and I would sit on the porch for hours and try to solve the world's problems! Met Jaiden at 1 day old when Cody brought him home. As a cancer survivor myself Colette and I felt connected as sisters. Colette's strong determination is what kept her fighting all these years. Her children and grandchildren were the driving force in her life. Loving all of them unconditionally and deeply. She told me they are what kept her going. Her love of Jesus was her main guiding force. I know she is healthy and happy now in His presence. God Bless you all with strength and comfort for the future! Love, Julie


What a beautiful soul, I haven't lived in SD for ten years but I remember so clearly her laugh and beautiful eyes. I feel so blessed to have worked with her and been a part of her life for awhile. Your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
