Obituary of Colleen Blake

After a beautiful life Colleen Blake died peacefully at Parkwood Retirement Suites on Saturday January 20, 2018, five days before her 94th birthday. Predeceased by her beloved husband George (1991). Loving mother of Vicki of Toronto, Mary Lou (Allen) Colwell of Harriston, Mike (Janis) and Gerry (Donna) of Waterloo. Proud Nana to her nine grandchildren T.J. (Deb) and Rick (Anna) Schippling, Sarah and Michelle Sternberg, Nick, Jim, Meagan, Chris and Natalie Blake. Cherished great grandmother to Lucia Schippling.

She was a 65 year proud member of the C.W.L. and a faithful member of St. Louis and St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Churches. Mom’s joy of life and care for others was a constant throughout her life. Her sense of humour and laughter were a gift to her family and friends to whom she will always be an inspiration. She loved watching sports, playing cards and her gin and wink.

Mom wanted to thank all her special friends especially Jacquie Papke. A special thanks to the staff at Parkwood Suites for their wonderful care and kindness.

A Memorial Mass will be held at St. Louis Roman Catholic Church 53 Allen St E, Waterloo on Wednesday January 24, 2018 at 11 a.m., with Father Phil Reilly C.R. as Celebrant. Reception to follow in the Church Hall. Cremation has already taken place.
