Born in Orange, Texas on July 2, 1965, she was the daughter of Lacy Dwight Bryan and Clara Leger Barrett. Whenever you met Colleen, the first thing you would notice was her warm smile and infectious laugh. Wherever she went, laughter and light followed. Her greatest joy in life was being a mother and a grandmother “Lolli”, living every day to be the best role model and companion she could be. Colleen loved her family whole-heartedly, and welcomed anyone and everyone who came into her life with a warm hug and humor for every occasion. She was talented in all aspects of her life, with the ability to cheer you up when you felt your worst, an eye as a talented photographer, owning Pachuca’s Portrait Studio for a number of years, and was an incredibly creative nail tech. Some of her favorite things were the epic family game nights she hosted at her home and the LCM band which she was the biggest fan and supporter. Those who knew Colleen on her journey through life were made better for it. She will be so dearly missed by all those whose lives were touched by her.

She was preceded in death by her father, Lacy Dwight Bryan; mother in law and father in law, Juantita Hardin and Tony Jeanise.

She is survived by her loving husband of 35 years, Mark Pachuca; mother, Clara Barrett and partner Floyd-Pete Kormon; sons, Marcelino “Bubba” Pachuca IV, Wesley Dwight Pachuca and wife Amber, and Jordan Taylor Pachuca and partner Conner Dugan; grandchildren, Serenity Stanley, Alysa Stanley, and Adaline Pachuca; siblings, Shelly Fair and husband Kelly, and Kelly Wade; brother in law, Mike Adair and Cathy; sister in law, Kay Vandevender; nieces and nephews, Emily and husband Tony, Hallie and husband Jacob, Josh, Liz, Lexxi, Lilli, Jace, Bryden, Carson, Carter, Christian, Stella, and Chapman; and her fur baby Chico.
