So sorry to just learn this evening of Colleen's passing. Worked with her at Harford Memorial Hospital back in the 80s and had run into her several years ago playing Bingo at The Graw. A wonderful lady. What an amazing 72 year marriage. My deepest sympathy to her family. I surely would have paid my respects had I known earlier. I know she will be missed more than I could ever imagine. Will remember you all in my prayers during this most sad and difficult time.
