Colleen Madonna Flood, 50, died Jan. 13, 2014, peacefully in her sleep. She was surrounded by her family and people that loved her dearly. 

Colleen grew up in Hamburg N.Y., but lived most of her adult life in Soldotna, Kenai and Homer. She was a published writer, and had written many books. She had a degree in education, but her greatest accomplishment was her son, whom she loved with all her heart. 

Colleen battled and survived stage-3 breast cancer about 17 years ago, and then battled and survived pancreatic cancer three years ago. She was a feisty and crazy red head who lived life to the fullest.

Colleen was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor on Dec.10, 2013, while on vacation in Hawaii. She had been suffering from sudden diminished eyesight and five days of extreme migraines, when she collapsed in the Honolulu airport and was escorted to the ER by four handsome young men (paramedics). She flew home to Alaska and underwent brain surgery and the tumor was removed. She passed away due to complications weeks after the surgery.

“We want to thank every one so much for your love, prayers and encouragement over the last month,” her family said. “It has been very difficult for everyone. Her family is asking for quiet time, so please refrain from contacting them so they can process this loss in their own time. No memorial service is planned. In lieu of flowers, you may donate to Colleen’s Medical Fund, which will help pay for her medical and final expenses, at http://www.gofundme.com/5r2mz4.”
