Colette was the nicest person to work with and never a disparaging word spoken. It was a pleasure to have known you and the training you gave me for the short period of time we worked together. You will be missed.

The family just isn't the same without our dear aunt Colette. We are so happy that we came to visit this past October but never know it would be the last time we would see her. Our memories have never been more strong than they are now. We will carry on our tradition of coming up to visit our extended family. Our memories of you will include your love for wrestling, dancing with the stars, decorating yourself (and your house), along the youngest love of your life, Adam. To you, the strongest woman I know, love forever...your three nieces, Diane, Debbie & Doris, the Florida trio😇💕

Colette was such a kind, thoughtful, sincere person that made everyone in her presence smile with her dry wit and wonderful personality. I admired her courage and strength. It saddens me to think I won't be seeing her smiling face all the time and I will miss our chats. Macy's just won't be the same without her.

What defines the Colette I knew? Strength through faith, feisty, dry wit and spunk, a sense of humor about herself, pursuit of excellence, dedication, perseverance, joy in the small things. I heard lyrics to In Christ Alone this week; brought tears to my eyes in retrospect, of her life start to finish.

You will be missed by all, Colette, especially your "family" at Macy's. You were an awesome employee and taught me well. Loved your sense of humor, kindness and loyalty. I enjoyed our laughter and conversations at work. You will truly be missed. Bless you Colette.
