She was born September 18, 1931 in Indianapolis to Edward and Eileen Junker. Colleen attended St Mary’s grade school and graduated from Holy Cross High School in 1949.

Colleen had many passions, but first and foremost was her love of the Lord. Her servant heart lead her to volunteer at various food pantries and kitchens in the Indianapolis area. She had deep compassion for the less fortunate and found it an honor to serve the hungry and the hopeless. She found great joy and savored each and every moment with her beloved grandchildren whom she called her “angels”. In her spare time, she could found “playing in the dirt” which was her term for manicuring her beautiful flower gardens.
Welcoming Colleen to heaven are her husband, George; her mother and father; her brother, John Junker and her sister Patty Belec; her son, Gus and her daughter Sophie.
She is survived by her daughter, Stephanie Beatty (husband, Frank); son, Tony Theofanis (wife, Mary); son-in-law, William Carmichael; grandchildren, Allison Tann (husband, David); Morgan Beatty; Gus and Grace Theofanis, Megan Carmichael and great-grand daughter, Olivia Tann.
