Obituary of Colleen Joyce Craig

After a valiant battle against her illness, Colleen passed away with her family by her side at home, on Sunday December 11, 2022 at the age of 65. Cherished Mom to Meagan and her favourite son-in-law Adam. Beloved Gramma to Ruby and Martin. Lovingly remembered as sister to John and Kathleen (Phil) Mallory, Aunt “Cooleen” by many nieces and nephews and by many other extended family members and friends. Predeceased by her parents Jack and Jean Craig and best friend John Nemeth.

Colleen was proud of her Scottish heritage and tried to introduce it to her family to it much as possible. Wherever she went, she was able to put a smile on people’s faces with her boisterous laugh and infectious smile. You could always find Colleen doing her crossword puzzles, reading or watching true crime stories, sitting by the canal or just driving around in her PT Cruiser. We wouldn’t dare to disturb her on Sunday morning as she would be watching Coronation Street. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

In accordance with her wishes, cremation has taken place. Arrangements are entrusted to Essentials Cremation and Burial Services. A Celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association in Colleen’s memory.

Service Information

There are no upcoming public services scheduled or the service has occurred in the past.

Have many fond memories of my cousin, Colleen growing up as kids. Sleeping in the tent trailer in their yard. She had a laugh you could not mistake for anyone else and a very kind heart. Will miss you Colleen.
