Messages of Condolence
Diane & family. So sorry for your loss. Your mom had was blessed to have such a wonderful loving family surrounding her throughout her life. God bless you all.
To all the O’Neill famialy, we are so sorry for your loss. Your mother was one amazing woman. We actually called her the “rock”. May she rest in peace ❤️
Diane and the entire O’neill family, the world lost a great woman and a very special person to me. She gave me my first nursing job and made me the nurse I am today. She was what all nurses strive to be like. I will miss you dearly (BIG “O”).
Dear Cousins. And just a few days ago, for no special reason, memories of Aunt Collette and the wonderful, fun family gatherings at your house floated by. Our thoughts are with you now.
So sorry for your loss. When we were young the whole neighborhood was always at her house and with all she had to deal with, she was always so kind to all of us. As I got older I always wondered how she has always been so strong. I will always have wonderful memories of this great lady!
Extending my sincerest sympathy for the loss of your Mom, Grandmother, and GG. She was one heck of a lady. I’m so glad I was able to share a few of those years with her at family gatherings. In lieu of flowers, I will be making a donation to Huntington’s Disease in her honor.
God Bless and find comfort in one another
I have a difficult time trying to determine which of Colette’s traits that I admired most. She was so funny and fierce and protective of her family. She definitely knew how to make a house, a home. Her porch light was always on welcoming people, feeding them and just being an extraordinary caretaker. Colette O’Neill was a true character.in the best sense of the word.
