Colleen Elaine Ott

Colleen Elaine Ott of Eaton Rapids, passed away June 25, 2023, at the age of 71. Colleen was born in Jackson, MI on October 10, 1951, to Richard and Marnette (Bigg) Kilburn. Colleen enjoyed collecting antiques and Fenton Glass. She was a generous person who got great pleasure out of giving to others even if that meant going without. She was known to give the coat or sweater off her back to people in need. But more than anything, she enjoyed spending time with her grandbaby. Colleen was very involved in church activities and found peace and comfort in her church family, and in her relationship with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Colleen is survived by her daughter, Kathryn (Tanja) Rupert of Ontario, Canada; one grandson, Tryn John Douglas Rupert of Ontario, Canada; step-siblings, Sue Young of Charlotte, Lois Franklin of Charlotte, Bruce Hanes of Charlotte, Kenneth Hanes of Charlotte; special friends, Bev and Denny Beutler of Charlotte; and several step nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her husband, Charles Ott; parents, Richard and Marnette (Bigg) Kilburn and stepmother, Dorine Kilburn.
