In Memoriam – Colleen Faulkner
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Colleen Suzette Faulkner, age 37, of Clayton Park, NS, from complications due to cystic fibrosis, on June 8th, 2018. She died peacefully, surrounded by her husband, friends and family.
Born in Carbonear, Newfoundland, she spent most of her adult life in Nova Scotia, but always longed to return home.
She lived life to the fullest and had the respect and admiration of her former colleagues at the Coady International Institute at St. FX and Continuing Professional Development at Dalhousie University.
Colleen was predeceased by her mother Sharon (née Green), uncle Douglas Green, and aunt Jacqueline Harvey (née Faulkner). She will be missed by her husband, Mark Theriault; Clayton Park, NS; father William (Kay) Faulkner; Bonavista, NL, brother Ryan Faulkner; Bonavista, NL, sister Crystal (Jeff) Baker, nephew Noah and niece Claire; St. Philip’s, NL, and many other relatives and close friends.
A celebration of life will take place Saturday June 16th, 1-3pm, in the community room of 110 Greenpark Close, Halifax. A memorial service in Bonavista, Newfoundland will be held at a later date. Arrangements have taken place under the care of T.J. Tracey Cremation and Burial Specialists.
Donations in her memory may be made to Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
