(Monday - October 19, 2020) - Colleen A. Lessor, age 89, of Kingsford, passed away on Saturday, October 17, at ManorCare Health Care Services in Kingsford.

Colleen was born December 16, 1930 in Iron Mountain, daughter of the late Edward and Lola (Vansickle) Hayes. She attended school in Kingsford and married Floyd “Buddy” Lessor on April 25th, 1949 in Kingsford. He preceded her in death on October 9, 2003. Colleen worked at Garden Village and the Kingsford Junior High School as a cook for over 26 years, retiring in 1993. She loved ‘her students’ and was proud to play a small role in their school experience.

Colleen enjoyed picking berries, making jam, cooking, singing, and more than anything, spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was the rock of the family, loved by many, and made a huge impact on all the lives she touched.

In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her daughter, Dixie Quick, son-in-law, Tom Quick, and two brothers, George and Eddie Hayes.

The family would like to thank the nursing staff at ManorCare for their care of Grandma. "A very special thank you to Marissa who was by her side when her family could not be."
