With broken hearts, we, the family of Colleen Marie Collins, regret to announce her passing on Tuesday, October 1, 2019, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney, surrounded by her loving family.

Born June 9, 1959, in Sydney, she was the daughter of Marguerite (Laffin) Collins and the late Harry Collins.

Colleen was employed at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital as an LPN in the palliative care unit, where she made many lasting friendships.

Besides her mother, Colleen is survived by her children, Cortney (Drew) Hlady, Grand Prairie, AB, Dr. Cara Best (Brady Cook), Saint John, NB and Kyle Best, Halifax; companion, Wayne Weatherbee; sister, Isobel (the late Gary) Pynn and brothers, Charles (Gail) and Jackie (Wanda), all of Whitney Pier; nieces and nephews; and many special friends.

Visitation will take place at Sydney Memorial Chapel on Friday, October 4 from 2-4 & 7-9 p.m.  Funeral Mass will be held at Holy Redeemer Church on Saturday, October 5 at 10 a.m., with Rev. Paul Murphy officiating.  Interment in Resurrection Cemetery.

Special thanks to Colleen’s wonderful co-workers and friends in the An Cala Unit for everything they did throughout this difficult journey.
