Colleen Mary Womack, of Novato, California, passed away at 3:30 PM on Sunday October 21, 2012.

She was 82 years old. Vibrant, everybody's friend, wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Colleen went through her life with a proud and upright posture and a sparkle in her eyes. She had the gift of understanding fashion, flair, design, color, fabrics, art and comfort. She was a consummate seamstress, cook, volunteer, performer, wife, life partner and mother. She had a gift for song and friendship.

Colleen was born in Mt. Vernon, Wash and moved with her family to Southern California when she was in her early teens. She and her husband Wayne were married in 1948 and moved to Novato in 1951, where they established roots and became extraordinary contributors to the development and growth of the city.

The disease that took her life was lung cancer. Stage 4. Not curable. Devastating. She passed away at her home, as her five children, three grandchildren and her husband Wayne were holding her. She was in her surroundings. She was as comfortable as one could be under such unforgiving circumstances. The light from the afternoon sun was shining brightly on her as she passed.

It is a complete understatement to say that her family, her friends and the world will miss Colleen. While she was alive, she brought a sense of love, order and humanity to all she came in contact with. With her passing, we know that her spirit will live on with her desire to protect her family, be a friend to everyone and simply make the world a better place. Her husband, Wayne , their five children, eight grandchildren and four great grandchildren, survive her.
