It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Colleen Ethel Burlock which occurred at The Moncton Hospital on May 31st, 2020 after a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 71. She was the wife of the late Wayne Clarke Burlock.

Born in Campbellton, N.B. she was the daughter of the late William and Phyllis Bryant (Benedict).

Colleen worked as a Ward Clerk at SMH as well as many years in the Hotel sector and wore a smiling face behind a demonstration table at Costco. She also served as a Union Representative for many years and Secretary/Treasurer for Blue Grass.

Her passions found her travelling to Sweden, British Columbia, camping in Florida and Blue Grass trips throughout the U.S. and Canada as well as spending hours working in her beautiful gardens.

Colleen was an avid and gifted crafter creating beautiful hand made quilts, floral arrangements and wreaths etc. She spent many late nights on her sewing machine and enjoying time with family and friends.

Left to mourn are siblings Linda, Esther (Graydi), Billy and Todd (Cheryl).

She was a devoted mother to Melody Krantz (Mattias) of Sweden, Clarence (Melanie) of Maple Ridge, B.C. and Darren (Deanita) of Moncton.

Cherished Grandmother to Bradley, Linnea, Samuel, Marshall, Avril, Laryssa-Lynn, Tristynn and Tyrese. She was a proud Great Grandmother to Linnus, Casper and Jaxynn-James.

She will also be lovingly remembered by Gladys, Harry, Gary and families, nieces, nephews, cousins and close family friends.

Colleen was a strong, kind and generous lady who was loved by all who knew her and will be dearly missed.

The family would like to thank Rev. Danny Compton, Dr. M. Abdelsalam, Dr. P. Mansfield, Dr. G. Mallet, Anne Marie LeBlanc and the nursing staff of 4200 and Palliative Care for the compassionate care given to Colleen.
