If you would like to view a memory tribute from Colette's family, please click on the following link:
Colette had a zest for life and was known for her outgoing and charismatic personality. She had a successful career in real estate and insurance, demonstrating an aggressively enterprising passion for business. Colette was a devoted child of God and found solace in attending church services or watching the live broadcast while making crepes, a French pancake, that she loved to share with her loved ones.
Her friends and family remember her as someone who had a remarkable talent for making small things special. She was immensely thoughtful. Birthdays were her forte, and she went above and beyond to celebrate her loved ones, making them memorable and "Biiiiiig" as one friend described. Colette had a deep love for her family and was outstandingly loyal to those who cared for her.
Colette leaves behind her mother and father, Karen and William, as well as her siblings, Noelle Mayberry and family, Will Perrot, and Amanda Klosterman. Colette appreciated and valued love and made others feel warm, like family. She will be deeply missed by all those who knew her.
A ceremony to honor Colette's life will be held on October 19, 2023, at 2 PM, in Moorhead Memorial Gardens in Moorhead, Minnesota, near the home of her younger sister. She will be laid to rest in a peaceful and cherished place, surrounded by the love of her family.
Colette's spirit will forever live on in the hearts of those she touched. As marked in her Bible with pictures of her beloved family, Romans 8:13 holds a special meaning: "For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live." Colette's memory and Spirit will continue to inspire and bring comfort to all who knew her. She was always very loving and compassionate. She made life fun and will be greatly missed.~
