August 24 1971-March 28 2022
It is with deep sorrow that the family announce the sudden passing of our dear sister, aunt, great-aunt, cousin, and friend Colleen Dawn Fitzpatrick age 50, at her residence.
She is survived by her sisters Patricia and Jeff Horch, Gwendolyn and Mauro Copetti, brother Daryl and Char Simchuk, nieces and nephews Dale, Cori and Ron and families, Kylar Keila and Keelara, Kevin and Craig, great nieces and nephews Caleb and Zara, Lena and Lexi, Ella as well as Gillian.
Colleen was born and raised in Winnipeg although her heart was truly anywhere, she could travel. She made friends wherever she went and whether it be overseas, to the US, or here in Canada and will be missed by so very many. She touched so many lives and thrived on making everyone around her the happiest they could possibly be. Her passion for her powerlifting was her ultimate happy place always and the circle of friends she gained there were forever in her heart.
Colleen had a true heart of gold with an amazing smile and of course her jiggly giggle that would leave us all in stitches and will forever remain with us. She had so many different circles of friends and I know they are feeling this loss, especially Greg, Clif, Kristjana, Lynn, Debbie and so very many more who will keep her beautiful spirit alive in all the amazing memories we have shared with her.
Colleen would want us to carry on and live our fullest happiest life we can and honor her that way and not dwell on her loss. She will always be just a breath away, so let’s remember and celebrate for Colleen as she would wish. Miss you so much already sis, love you to the stars and beyond until we meet again…
