  1. I am so sorry to hear about Coleen...I knew her as a little girl when they lived right above my aunt and uncle Vera and Anson Richmond down on Farnum St...we used to play for hours in the great outdoors...I hope she is at rest now and enjoying one of those wonderful subs with her momma and dad...R.I.P. Coleen

  6. So sad to learn of Colleen's passing. She was a wonderful employee at the bank and well liked by the customers. When we started opening on Saturday not many employees wanted to work but I could always count of Colleen. My first encounter was at Dixon's Sub Shop--I always considered them the finest Subs anywhere! Just yesterday I was coming back from Wellsville and was commenting on there was a time there was no arterial. We then mentioned Dixons Sub Shop. How ironic when I got home I saw her obituary in the paper. Rest in Peace. David B. Fleming

    Michele and I send our sympathy to you all. Colleen was always a pleasure to talk to and a joy to be around. I always looked forward to seeing her (and all of you other distant relatives) at the annual reunion. We hold wonderful memories of Colleen. Heaven has yet another angel watching over us.
