It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Colleen Valerie Rees on Friday, January 25, 2008 at the age of 71 years.
Colleen had a great zest for life and particularly enjoyed exploring food markets and trying new recipes. Colleen leaves to cherish her memory, her brother and sister-in-law Leslie and Maureen of Yorkshire, England; her daughter Carol; her grandchildren, Chris, Josh and Meaghan; her many other relatives in England and Canada; and numerous friends from Suncor and Petro-Canada. Colleen was predeceased by her son Ivan.
At Colleen’s request, there will be a private service at a later date. We ask that those who knew Colleen pause and remember her kind and gentle spirit.
