Our House is Your House

Colleen Ann World

Colleen Ann left this world on the afternoon of January 3, surrounded by the love of her family. Colleen Ann, born on December 5, 1961, attempted to be the best she could be throughout her life, to act with integrity and to be true to herself.

To carry this legacy forward she leaves her son Griffin Woodward, her parents, John and Irene World, brothers, Doug (Sharon), Ron (Sharon), nieces and nephews Jeremy, Kelly (Joseph), Sydney and Nathan and great niece Isabelle. She also leaves her kindred spirit, Brenda McConachie and numerous close friends.

Colleen was a teacher in District 68 and 69. She was recently recognized by the BCTF Provincial Math Association as Math Teacher of the year. Her passions were teaching manners, grammar and math. She was the 1980 BC  junior women curling champion on Lana Lacheur’s Oak Bay team.

Colleen wanted people to attempt to be the best they could, act with integrity and true to themself as she strived to do throughout her life. She was so appreciative of the amazing care she received over the years from the nurses and doctors at the Family Practice, Victoria Cancer Clinic and the Nanaimo Regional Hospital Palliative Care and Hospice Society. Special thanks to Dr. Love, Dr. Walker, Dorthea and Dr. Carr for your tenderness and compassion.

The nurses of the Palliative Care and Ray from Hospice are truly angels. In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Colleen’s memory to Hospice, Palliative Care Unit or Research Awareness Metastasized Breast Cancer. A Bursary will be set up in Colleen’s memory at Dover Bay for an Industrial Arts student. Donations for this will be collected at her celebration of life. Be happy and love life. Date to be announced in the spring for some fun planned by Colleen.
