JORDAN, COLLEENPosted: May 21st, 2015
It is with deepest sorrow we announce the passing of our beloved Colleen on Tuesday May 5, 2015. She went peacefully to be with Jesus, at her home in Sundre with her loving family at her side.
Colleen leaves to cherish her memory her devoted and loving husband, William (Bill) Jordan, her loving children Ryan (Karri) Muller and Jordan Muller, her loving parents Fran Lowe and Macky Watt, her half brother David Watt, many aunties, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, other family and many dear friends. She was predeceased by her grandparents William and Myrtle Evans of Beatty, SK. & John and Signe Watt of Porcupine Plain, SK.
Ann Colleen Watt was born February 27, 1969 in Melfort, SK. At the age of 6 months she moved with her parents to Rocky Mtn House, Ab where she spent her early years, attending school at Lochearn Elementary through grade 8. She entered grade 9 in Vulcan and finished her high school at Senator Gershaw in Bow Island, AB.
Working or playing, Colleen loved all things outdoors; hiking, climbing, exploring, animals of all kinds. She loved her pets and over the years had many of them: dogs of every breed and size, kittens, birds, fish, an iguana, even a big hairy spider found a home with her! Her dogs Sugar and Hudson will miss her greatly.
In 1988 Colleen married Kasper Muller of Bow Island, Ab and together they had two children, Ryan and Jordan. Over the next few years Colleen and her family spent most of their time on the family Dairy Farm. She would be up at the crack of dawn to feed calves and end the day preparing an abundance of food for her family. She truly was a country girl at heart. She loved the freedom of the outdoors and spending time with the animals. However, in 2003 she moved with her family to the big city of Medicine Hat. With her children in high school, she found work at City Signs and later, Vanshaw Casinos. And for a couple of years, she was a very special and second Mom to Brooks. Colleen was easygoing and warm hearted. She was very accepting of everyone who came through the door and thought of everyone before herself.
In 2012 Colleen moved to Sundre, Ab where she married Bill Jordan 2 years later. She found employment there with Tom and Debra King at Maxwell Realty. Here is where her friendly nature shone through. She effortlessly put a smile on everyone’s face the moment she came into the room. She still liked the outdoors and being close to the mountains added to her already happy bubbly personality. Even in her last months, Colleen’s strength and stubborn attitude came through not wanting to be a burden on anyone. Not that she ever was. Her love for her children is never ending. She was and still is a beautiful woman and will be sadly missed by all who knew her.
Colleen was a precious gift from God and we give her back to Him with thankful hearts for the time we had with her.
A celebration of Colleen’s life was held on May 12, 2015 at the Cowboy Church, James River Hall, Sundre, Ab. Her family would like to thank everyone who attended for their support and expressions of love and care. We also thank the following: Tom and Gordon for their kind words at the memorial service, Don, Carol and Debbie for the beautiful music, Fern, Debra and all of the Cowboy Church family for the lovely luncheon, a very special thanks to Jordan who, with Karri’s help, made several of her Mom’s salads for all of us to enjoy.
Thank you to everyone for your gifts of food, flowers, cards, visits, phone calls, texts, emails and especially for your prayers. Thanks also to those who contributed to either of her memorial funds, the Cowboy Church and Colleen’s Memorial (a park bench).
A very special and heartfelt ‘Thank You’ goes to Drs Rob and Michelle Warren and their nurses, Shaila and Leah for the wonderful ‘at home’ care and support they provided to Colleen and her family. We can never repay you for that blessing; thank you hardly seems enough. God bless you.
Thank you to Brian and Sunset Funeral Service of Linden, Ab for their warm and professional care.
