Long time friend Diane Kindt had this to say about Colleen and her bike, “She was all over town on it; on every street and sidewalk and sometimes in the middle! She was full of funny stories that kept her friends in stitches. She loved life-especially her family! And her friends. So caring and compassionate. Loved playing cards. Everything she did, she did with a passion and always in a hurry! She lived every moment like it was her last. We all miss her at Homespun because we miss her laugh and stories. Her love knew no bounds. She lived life like she rode her bike….fast and full of energy. We can’t believe she is gone but know she would want us to remember her. She loved Mobridge and everything about it. She loved the pool and used to go to the over the supper hour time that was allotted to adults.”
