Colleen Hannon was born July 16, 1963 in Minneapolis to Raymond & Sheila (McGuire) Hannon. She lived in St. Michael, St. Louis Park and Brooklyn Park before moving to Becker in the early 1990’s. Colleen recently retired after 33 years of devoted service to Xcel Energy and her nuclear family. She was a member of Mary of the Visitation Catholic Church in Becker. Colleen was a proud mother, stepmom and grandmother. She was a big rock and roller, outdoors woman, animal lover and Peanuts gang enthusiast. Colleen was outgoing and could light up a room with her smile.
