Colleen Dawn Rohne
Passed on November 25, 2020
With great sadness the family announces the sudden passing of Colleen at her home in Inwood MB on November 25, 2020.
Colleen will be missed dearly by her partner in life for 33 years Jack Coverdale, their children Raelyne (Lance) and Bradon (Jen) and Granddaughters Kenzie and Callie, her Mom Marilyn, her Sister Lisa (Darryl) and Brother Sonny (Arlie) as well as many nephews, nieces, cousins and other loving family members and friends.
Colleen was predeceased by her Dad Guy, In-Laws Nora and Harold and special friends Nadine and Diane, as well many other dear family members.
Born on April 8, 1971 at the St Boniface Hospital, Colleen grew up in Inwood, attended school there until grade 9 and graduated high school from Teulon Collegiate. Colleen never wanted to be far from Mom and Dad as a child and so it made sense that she and Jack would make their family home and raise Raelyne and Bradon just down the street from where she grew up. Inwood was always home for Colleen and it won’t be the same without her.
Travelling together brought great joy and treasured memories for Colleen and Jack, whether it was a drive for an ice cream, shopping for the girls or a trip to Alaska or Vancouver Island, every adventure together brought them great happiness.
Hosting family dinners, coffee dates, Birthday parties for the grandkids and of course Christmas morning celebrations which included making thin pancakes for everyone, will always be cherished memories. The family home was remarkably busy over the last few years, as Ma and Pa to Kenzie and Callie, their home was filled with laughter, toys, treats and of course love and cuddles. Ma loved time with her grandchildren taking them to the Zoo, Splashpads, out for Happy Meals, play time on the deck and just having them around to bring her smiles and love. Over the last several months Jack took on many extra responsibilities, but none were as important as making sure the grandkids could be around to bring their Ma smiles and comfort.
More than two decades ago Colleen began working at South Interlake Credit Union and remained a member of the Sunova family until her passing. The stories of fun and adventure with “The Sunova Gang” were some of her favorite; Colleen truly hoped for a better day to get back to work and back to the adventures with everyone she missed so much.
In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, please donate to The Kidney Foundation of Canada – Manitoba Branch in Colleens memory and please consider registering at signupforlife.ca to be an organ and tissue donor to give the gift of life.
The Family wishes to acknowledge and thank the Inwood and Armstrong Fire Dept, Members of the RCMP, East Interlake EMS and STARS Air Ambulance, community members and friends for their compassion and support.
Colleen, Soos, Mom and Ma, you made us all feel so loved, cherished and important in your life, you will forever be missed.
