Condolences for the Family of
Carolyn Colton

View Service Details

From: Phil Jensen, VA Medical Center

I was so sorry to learn about Carolyn. She was a wonderful coworker at the VA! Her kindness and compassion will long be remembered by the staff and patients. We always looked forward to having her come and assist with stress testing. She is to be commended on her 35 years of service to the Veterans and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that she was also a veteran! A life well-lived Carolyn! We will all miss you!

My prayer is that God comfort the family in your time of bereavement. The scriptures say to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. God bless and keep you is also my prayer.

I thank God for the life of Carolyn Colton. She was truly an extraordinary woman. Her service to the Nation and to the community is unsurpassed. I'm sure patients at the VA Hospital can attest to that. I served in the National Guard with James and I now understand why he is such a caring and thoughtful person, because of his Mother. May God bless and care for Carolyn's family during this difficult time.
