Colleen was an avid sports fan and was a huge supporter of the Brewers, Packers, Bucks and Badgers. She was a “by-the-rules” player of golf, tennis and cards – especially Euchre. But Colleen will be remembered most for her love and devotion to her family and her faith. Colleen and Daniel were members of St. Mary Catholic Faith Community for over 50 years. They also enjoyed the time they spent in Naples and the friends they made over 30 winters there.
