Collette has been such a quiet and conscientious servant that she will be missed by people who didn't even know they were being served.

Jay and family, I’m so sorry for your loss. Collette was one of the most beautiful people I knew. She loved the Lord and her family. I had many opportunities to work on meals at the church, and she was so good in the kitchen. Sometimes I drove her crazy when I would “modify” a recipe! God called a special lady home and we’ll miss her here on earth. God bless!

Sorry to hear of her death. We enjoyed working with her for the Wednesday evening meals at Mitchell Wesleyan Church for 2 or 3 years. We will pray for the family.

There are no words to express the loss that we feel without her. She was a friend, sister, someone who you could just be yourself. I will miss her very much.
