Colleen was the eldest of 3 daughters of that marriage, but became the eldest of 4 from her father’s second marriage to Catherine White Bush. She loved life to the fullest. Always a smile, joke or a hug for all. For the 30 of 37 years, Colleen has lived at the group home due to a car accident in 1984 that claimed the life of her sister Lizabeth M. White and left her with a traumatic brain injury.
