Our friend and steward Colleen Large has passed away

Hello everyone,

It is with a heavy heart that I let you know that Colleen Large passed away on Sunday, July 19th. Colleen started as a steward in Hamilton several years ago in the call centre. She transferred to St. Catherine’s and continued as a steward for their local. Upon returning to the Hamilton office, as a steward here, she helped us out where needed. She was an active member of our local throughout the years and was a voice at our Annual General Meetings.

Colleen was diagnosed with cancer this winter. She was receiving treatment and became gravely ill and passed away quicker than anticipated. Her family were able to be with her. Colleen lost her sister to cancer just prior to her becoming ill. My heart goes out to her entire family.

At this time, I have no information on a service for her. Our local will hold a get together, once we are able to gather again, and remember our friend Colleen.
