Colleen E. Harold

Colleen E. Harold – (36) – of Hornell passed on Monday, July 24, 2017 as a result of injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident.

Born in Lewiston, NY, on April 24, 1981, she was the daughter of Jeffrey and Diane (Colucci) Harold.

Colleen grew up in Hornell and was a graduate of Hornell High School (class of 1999).  She always had a strong interest in working in the medical field.  Colleen had pursued a nursing degree at Corning Community College and had obtained her CNA certification before deciding on a career in optometry.  She began working in the offices of Dr. Stephan Greenberg, MD and Dr. George Heinig, OD and had acquired her Optician’s License earlier this year.  Most recently, Colleen had been employed as an Optician in the Vision Center at the Horseheads Walmart.  For the past 14 years, Colleen was also a bartender at Jeff’s clubhouse in Hornell and very much enjoyed spending time there.

Colleen most enjoyed spending time with her family and friends.  She had a true zest for life and loved finding fun and adventurous activities to do with her children and was happiest when she was with them.  Colleen also enjoyed baking, cooking, and was an avid reader. 

She was preceded in death by her paternal grandfather, Robert Harold; maternal grandparents, Ettore and Gertrude Colucci; and maternal great-grandmother, Vincenza Colucci.

    Dear Harold Family: Please accept my deepest sympathy for the tragic loss of your loved one, Colleen. It breaks our hearts when death separates us from the ones we love so much, especially when they are as young as Colleen. The Bible reminds us that God sees our pain and grief and has promised that soon,”death will be swallowed up forever.”(Isaiah 25:8) He will heal our broken hearts by resurrecting our precious loved ones to life again.(John 6:40) Until then, I hope the beautiful memories of Colleen and these promises from God comfort you in the days to come.
