Seeking a more serene life, Colleen and family moved from the bay area to Volcano, CA in 1996 leaving a 15-year career at SRI International where she worked in the purchasing department. For the first 4 years of living in Amador County, she was a stay-at-home mom then began working at The Jackson Rancheria for the next 16 years before deciding to retire. Colleen lived life to the very fullest enjoying summer days on the lake, traveling and live concerts with family and friends. A deeply devoted wife, mother, aunt and grandmother, Colleen’s kindness and sense of humor made her a friend to many over the years. She will be profoundly missed, and her signature laugh will remain in our hearts forever.
