Obituary: Colleen Marie Fisher

Colleen Marie Fisher left us on Oct. 11, 2010, following a tragic accident in Truckee, California. Colleen was born May 21, 1953 to Lucille (Rousseau) Fisher and George Fisher in Billings, Montana. After graduating from Billings West High School in 1972, she lived in Red Lodge and Whitefish, Montana, before moving and making her home in the Lake Tahoe area.

Mother to George Taylor Love of California; twin sister to Naomi (Tim) O’Connell of Laurel, Montana; sister to DeEtta Krank and Patty Swainson of Billings, Montana; aunt to Brian Horner, Kristen Krank, Kimberly Swainson, Bret Swainson and Patrick O’Connell. A special friend to many in Truckee, California and Montana.

Colleen was a beautiful free spirit. She was an artist, skier, hiker and loved nature and animals. As an organ donor, others will receive the benefit of her untimely death. We are very proud of her. We will miss her and her beautiful blue eyes.

Her parents preceded her in death. A memorial funeral mass will be held on Tuesday, October 26, at noon at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in downtown Billings. A family gathering will be held at a later date. Memorials to the charity of your choice.
