Colleen Anne Hatch (nee Crysler)

August 31, 1943-August 29, 2011

With great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Colleen. Predeceased by her mother, Norma and father, Grant Crysler. Colleen will be lovingly missed by her husband and best friend, Gerald (Jerry), sons Rob (Leanna) and Greg. Grandchildren, who she cherished spending time with Tyler and Taya. Colleen was an avid animal lover and leaves behind her two yorkies, Abby and Corky, who followed her like a shadow. Colleen will be remembered as a devoted wife, loving mother, adoring grandma, and a dear friend to all that knew her. Most recently she enjoyed her time with Jerry at their home in Desert Hot Springs making new friends and memories. While at home in Parksville, Colleen kept busy with the Red Hat Society living life to the fullest and will be greatly missed.

A celebration of Colleen’s life was held at Yates Funeral Service on Saturday, September 3, 2011 at 2pm.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the BC Cancer Society.
