Mom (Colleen) was a lady who never had an enemy. She was so kind and loving. She raised so many kids and helped with all kids who came through her home including me. She had a charm about her that was obvious til her dying day. I am sure she is in Heaven mediating the "loud discussions" her son Tim and husband are having as she holds her baby girl, Mila, and pets her animals that have passed. This lady took me in her life when I was 17. She helped me raise my boys and understand hers to whom I was married. I hope she realized just how much she meant to me.

Colleen (Mom) Robinson was my Mother-in-law. She was a very sweet, beautiful and caring lady. She lived with us for a year in Tennessee, that was the best time that her Son Quint and his family had with Mom, we enjoyed that more than anything. She taught me how to make homemade lasagna. She will always be missed and loved. We will forever hold her in our hearts.

Miles and Zina,

Your mom was a very special lady. Colleen worked for me at Lexel for several years and never once did I hear her complain about anything. A story that sticks in my memory was when she came to work one morning and had burnt her hands on a skillet cooking breakfast, I seen the blisters on her hands and ask if she wanted me to move her to an easier job that day... she said she'd be fine... She worked her regular job all day and never complained once. That day she earned my respect for her. She was one of the best employees I ever had. She was a very very special lady. I wish I would have had 50 more just like her. She was a great lady. I will miss her greatly. My condolences go out to you. I am happy that I had the honor to meet and get to know Colleen.
