  1. As teen agers there was a group of us in the mountin view ward that were very close. Jack and Coleen were in that group. They were both good friends and we had a lot of good times together I saw her last at Norms funeral. She will be missed .halpmcewan

  2. Colleen and I were visiting teaching partners for a few years (before it became ministering). She taught me the importance of checking on the people we were assigned to visit, and also to others. She was very diligent on making sure the needs of others was taking care of. She was full of compassion and love for everyone!! I will truly miss her sweet, soft voice and the love she showed me all the years we have lived in St George. Our love and prayers for Ron and his family. xoxo

  3. Colleen was a dear friend who I will sorely miss. We first became acquainted because she was Primary teacher to my granddaughter, Cassidy Rawson. Cassidy dearly loved Sis. Muir and snuggled with her in Sacrament Meetings until her family moved from the ward. Because of this connection, we became friends. We both have a love for knitting and got together several times to knit — especially for her to teach me and correct my mistakes. She loved to sew and made me a pin cushion/scrap holder that I loved, so she came to my house and helped me make one. It was very labor intensive, yet she made it without a pattern. I will always treasure those times with her. Rest in peace, Colleen. I will never forget you!

  4. Thank you Colleen and Raun for welcoming us when we moved to St George. We had many good years together in our study group and fun times eating out together. Good memories! Our love and condolences to Raun and your families.

  5. Dear Ron and family,
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you make your adjustments to the passing of our dear sweet Coleen. She was so good to us as Diana’s San Diego missionary companions after we all returned home safely. We enjoyed you both so much with your laughter and her cooking. What a reunion they must have had in the Spirit World together!!! We know you’ll be lonesome As well as the cats will be moping around the house. We love you so much and we will come and see you next time we are in the St. George area.
