Colleen traveled extensively during her too short lifetime and had the friendship of many in Carson City and beyond. She attended high school in Gardnerville and thereafter served in the United States Air Force as a flight planner. She loved animals, especially her Chihuahuas, Hondo and Cisco. Those who knew Colleen knew that she was her own person, God bless her, and marched to her own drummer.
Colleen is survived by parents, Roberta and Bud Clements, Jerry Paddock; sisters, Wendy Heddon, Michelle Richiusa and Dawn Mays; four nieces, three nephews, five grand nieces and nephews. Her brother, Ray Paddock, preceded her into Spirit.
The friends and family of Colleen would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to the staff of the Reno Veterans Administration hospital and hospice for the loving care they took in making her last days comfortable and peaceful. Rest in Peace Colleen. We love you and will miss you until that time when we will meet again.
A celebration of life will be attended by her family and friends at 2PM on 15 September 2012 at 254 Linehan Road, Moundhouse, Nevada.
