Colleen Canney Obituary (2022) – Madison, WI

Colleen Kay Canney

March 17, 1950 – Aug 14, 2022

MADISON – Colleen Kay Canney – the one-and-only Irish Colleen, born on St. Patrick’s Day – passed away on Sunday, Aug. 14, 2022, in Madison, Wis. She loved her family, her Irish heritage, and her Packers. She was a private person, but those who knew her well the inner child she kept near the surface and recognized the twinkle in her hazel eyes when something tickled her. When her belly laugh started (often leading to tears of hilarity), you couldn’t help but join in.

Colleen is survived by her husband and lifelong love, Mike; her daughter, Carrie-Ann (Dave); her son, Kevin (Melissa); her beloved grandchildren, Kayleigh (Nikko), Madeleine, Sam, Colin, Megan and Caroline; and her sister, Maureen (Mike). She is now reunited with her parents, sisters, and brothers.

A Mass of Christian burial will be held at IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY CATHOLIC CHURCH, 5101 Schofield St., Monona, at 11 am on Monday, Aug. 22, 2022. Visitation will be held at the church from 9 am until the time of the Mass on Monday. Colleen will be interred at Fort Howard Cemetery in Green Bay, Wis., at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (http://tinyurl.com/StJudeCCanney). Online condolences may be made at www.gundersonfh.com.
