A remarkable woman who could dance backwards in high heels and make it look easy. She passed away after a seven year battle with breast cancer. She was fifty-two years old.

In addition to her son, Myles Colwell Jr., and her Mother, she is survived by her younger brother Thomas and her sisters, Bertha Fritz Reese and Isabelle Fritz Miller, and several nieces and nephews.
