Collette was born September 20, 1963 in Edmonton Alberta. She grew up in Calgary Alberta and returned home often. Collette lived in many places over the years – across three Western provinces and even on a sailboat in New York. She finally decided to plant her roots in Yorkton Saskatchewan where she bought her first home. Collette joined the team at Yail Harbor where she flourished with her incredible humility and joy for 15 years before her passing. Collette was a devoted mother and aunt. She and her sister Elaine raised their children together, creating a rare and unbreakable bond. Family was the most important to Collette, so when she fell in love with her husband Brian and became a grandmother and later a great aunt her heart was truly fulfilled.
Collette had many adventures. She enjoyed motorcycle rides, fast cars, traveling to new places, exploring churches and antique stores, camping with her grandchildren, growing in her spirituality, weekend road trips, fashion and shoes, great wine and gatherings big or small with her cherished friends. Collette was a beacon of all that is good in the world and impacted every person she encountered. She taught us all the importance of unconditional love and compassion, Laughter and loyalty. Although she was taken too soon Collette lived to the fullest every moment and always encouraged you to do the same. Her laughter, hugs and smile will forever shine in our hearts and memories. She will live on through all that loved her.
