    One of the finest “hearts” in our industry. A passionate professional who understood the business and the imperative importance of customer care. The Jewelry Industry of the Chicago Suburbs has lost a veteran and iis therefore diminished by her void!
    Our heartfelt condolences to her friends and grieving family, may memories of her brilliant smile and easy laugh bring you comfort in the days ahead.

    Regardless of who they were, it’s most often written of persons upon their passing,as to how wonderful they were. Colleen was the exception, as she truly was that most wonderful person in life.

    I am so sadden by the loss of one of my childhood friends that I consider a sister to me. My memories of our grade school sleep overs, hanging out playing games, and my welcome into your family excursions, will always be embedded in my mind.

  21. Paula LaBarbera condolence:

    Condolences to Colleen’s family and friends, and to all the lives she touched through her business. Colleen was a major part of my Brookfield years. She watched my son grow up, as I brought him into the store from the time he was a baby until he was a young man, looking for a gift for me. She always found the perfect gift that matched his budget. I’ll never forget her kindness, her wisdom, and how much I enjoyed our chats, which extended long beyond my picking up whatever I had dropped off for repair, or longer than stopping by the shop. Before I moved, she reset my mom’s engagement ring for me and we both were in awe of it when I picked it up. Colleen was one of the people I wished I could pack up with me when I moved out of state. I am so sad hearing this news. She really was a treasure and such a kind soul.

  22. Cathy Gischlar condolence:

    Colleen was such a lovely person. I enjoyed many chats with her while browsing the jewelry she created. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

  23. Marsha Gonzalez & Family condolence:

Proud to be amongst the Blessed friendships this beautiful soul was to so many <3 a gem to us all! With our prayers and condolences to her family and adoring husband Jim, for the sudden loss.

  24. Daria Ruffolo condolence:

  25. Nancy Silva condolence:

    I am so deeply saddened to see. Colleen was someone who cared about everybody who came to know her. She was a wonderful lady and always had time to listen to everything I would tell her, whether it was important or trivial. I will always remember her lovely smile and her ability to get me to laugh, even in the saddest of times. She will be sorely missed! Sending my heartfelt sympathies to her husband and her family. Colleen, like myself was a huge Cubs Fan! Luckily we shared great memories of 2016! RIP, Colleen! Nobody will ever replace you!

  31. MILDRED (Millie) MENDEL condolence:

    My deepest sympathy to Colleen’s family.
    I frequented the jewelry store and always had a good relationship with Colleen.
    May you Rest In Peace.

  32. Paul Szachnitowski condolence:

    “Go to Colleen. You can trust her. And, you’re going to like her. She’s nice.” Over the decades, I have no idea of how many times I said that. Now when asked, for a jeweler, I will say good luck, you’re on your own. We are all replaceable but, with Colleen, it will not be easy.

Please share your thoughts ...
