Passed away peacefully at St. Catharines Hospital on April 6th, 2022 in her 88th year.  Survived by her loving and supportive husband of 65 years Donald Sabo. Cherished mother of Tammy (Jim) Leavoy, Beth (Scott) Henderson and Cindy Sabo. Beloved grandmother to Taylor (Jessica) Leavoy and Clinton Sabo and great grandmother to Olivia and Amelia Leavoy. She will also be missed by her sister Phyllis Negrette in California.  Predeceased by her parents Alice and Colin Haney from Dunnville.

Colleen was very active in the Pelham community for many years: volunteering in the Fonthill Firefighter Auxiliary, acting as a crossing guard in Fonthill and coaching local baseball teams.  She was very talented and delighted in artistic and crafty things and loved sewing and knitting clothes for family and friends. Colleen had a love of antiques and refinishing special treasures. Don and Colleen spent over 20 years as snowbirds, vacationing in Florida in the winter months. She was always there to support her family and friends whenever they needed her, and she will be greatly missed by all.

In keeping with Colleen’s wishes, cremation has taken place. Memorial donations in Colleen’s name made to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated by the family. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Lampman Funeral Home.
