Colleen Patricia Evans Solomon passed on December 30th, at the age of 85. She is preceded in death by her parents Michael and Hazel Evans and her sister Katherine Evans. Colleen is survived by her loving husband Joseph. They were married for nearly 60 years. She is also the mother of two daughters, Kathleen (Edward) Theut and Rebecca (Curtis) Peters. Colleen was proud and very involved with her grandsons Jacob Theut and Christian and Caleb Peters. She leaves behind her in-laws Mary Ann Solomon and Thomas Solomon.

Colleen graduated from Southeastern High School, Detroit in 1955. She was employed at Simons Michelson Ad Agency and General Motors Photographic. Colleen was an avid reader. She enjoyed studying Egyptology, astrology, the works of William Shakespeare and many other great authors of note. Colleen also loved music of many genres and enjoyed movies from various periods of film. She was an accomplished artist and ballet dancer. Colleen created one-of-a-kind jewelry and sold the jewelry through her company "String-A-Lings." In 1991, Colleen, Joseph and Rebecca opened a Mail Boxes, Etc. franchise, which is now The UPS Store.

During her long, active life, Colleen was a Girl Scout leader and a member of the Bon Secours Hospital Assistance League. Colleen enjoyed entertaining friends and family with great and memorable parties. She was a loving daughter and a faithful wife, a great lover and Joe's best friend. Colleen was an extraordinary mother, deeply involved in the lives of her two daughters. Colleen strongly supported and aided her husband Joe and her daughters in whatever they pursued. Colleen was truly "the Star of the County Down."

On behalf of the Capuchin brothers I offer my deepest sympathies on the passing of Colleen. It is truly humbling to receive memorial donations in honor of her life. Please be assured of the brother's prayers for the entire Solomon family during this great time of grief. May perpetual light shine upon Colleen.
