Colleen Welch, 73, known for her infectious smile, love of music, and endless hugs, decided to join her voice with the choirs of angels on April 20, 2021, while in the arms of her husband and daughter.
We honor the life well lived of our wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Colleen strived to make all she met feel welcomed and loved. She pushed those around her to live their best life and appreciate the richness of the human experience.
Colleen was passionate about her faith, family, music, friends, and sports. If she wasn’t cheering a sporting event, you could find her working with her husband in their beautiful yard, in the kitchen preparing something delicious, uplifting spirits of those around her, or selflessly giving of her time and service to others.
She is survived by her love of 50 years Orson; son Spencer; daughters Cari Jenkins, Lindsey Ewing and Stacey Robins; 8 ½ grandchildren; her twin sister, Charleen Ford; and two brothers, Richard and Duane Allen.
Services will be at 11:00 am April 30, 2021, at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 12817 SE 256th St, Kent, WA. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the two organizations that helped Colleen live her best life until the very end - Swedish Cancer Institute, https://give.swedishfoundation.org/cancer, or Community Home Health & Hospice, www.chhh.org/how-you-can-help/donate-now .
