August 1, 1957 - May 1, 2014


It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Colleen Mary Burkitt of St. Paul, formerly of Stewart Valley, SK. on May 1, 2014 at the age of 56 years.  She is survived by her loving companion, Emile Senecal; children, Riley Campbell (Kye Dolter) & Brady Campbell (Fallon Rohrich) both of Swift Current, SK. & Hailey Campbell of Regina, SK.; mother, Margaret Burkitt of Watrous, SK.; 3 sisters, Maureen (Les) Gartner of Watrous, SK., Lynn (Bob) Freundl of Medicine Hat & Lori (Greg) Meddins of Young, SK.; nieces, Lacey Meddins (Craig Anderson) & Marcie (Ryan) Halyk; numerous great-nieces & nephews.  She was predeceased by her dad, Lewis Burkitt.  Colleen was very passionate about her career as a registered nurse in which she practiced for over 30 years, taking her to various locations throughout Saskatchewan & Northern Alberta. Her hobbies included curling, hunting & fishing with Emile. She enjoyed traveling, canning with her daughter, Hailey & most importantly spending time with her family and friends. She will be greatly missed. A Family Memorial Service will be held at a later date in Watrous, Saskatchewan. If desired, donations may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association c/o 5626 – 51 Street, St. Paul, AB. T0A 3A1.  To send condolences online, please visit www.gracegardensfuneralchapel.com.

My sympathies to Coleen’s friends, family and colleagues. She was generous in the sharing of her nursing experiences that could be helpful to someone else. She gave her time to teach even when she was not at work.
