Colleen E. (Shannon) Williams, of Enfield, passed away peacefully in her home, surrounded by her family, on Wednesday May 27, 2020.
She was born in Barre, VT on January 30, 1941 to Alice (McAllister) and Harold Shannon. She was a 1959 graduate of Manchester High School. Colleen worked in the eye care field for 45 years in many roles but mostly as an Office Manager. She spent 20 years with Dr.’s Goldberg and Tishler in Enfield, CT and then worked for Baystate Eye Care in Springfield, MA for 25 years. She was adored by all the patients because of her outgoing personality, caring nature and her humor. She was a remarkable woman with a kind heart and an open door. She was a friend, mentor and confidante to so many. She was known for making the best chocolate chip “cowboy cookie” and made lifelong friends by sharing them. She was an amazing role model for her children and her grandchildren. She enjoyed trips to the family farm in VT, Saturday morning tag sales, lunches with her work buddies and spending time with her family. Her family loves her greatly and will miss her every day.
She is survived by her devoted family; her son Brian Anderson and his wife Lisa of Westfield, MA, her daughter Kathleen Gero and her husband Alan of Enfield, her sister Cathy Nelson of Bolton and her brother Conrad and his wife Chris of Georgia. She leaves four very special grandsons Michael and Christopher Anderson; Scott and Austin Longo, and her cherished granddaughter Marissa Colleen Longo, who shared the same birthday. She was predeceased by her sister Cynthia Doyon. She also leaves many special cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. Colleen had a special place in her heart for her dear family friend Ivan Perez-Soto.
Funeral services will be private due to the health crisis. Memorial service will be held at a later date when friends and family can gather together and celebrate her life.
Memorial donations may be made to the American Diabetes Association, P.O. Box 15829 Arlington, VA 22215 or the Enfield Food Shelf, P.O. Box 699 Enfield, CT 06083-0699. The family would like to give special thanks to Trinity Home Care / Trinity Hospice and to her caregiver Bridgette.

Kathleen your Mom was a wonderfully caring person. She always brought the conversation back to how things were going for you - she remembered details that we forgot we shared! We will miss her. She will want you to remember her enjoying her life and family. Love you, Ceci & Jim

Condolences to a wonderful family. I will miss Colleen’s laugh, and sharing old workplace memories with her. I looked forward to getting together for our chit chats, and to hear her laugh. I will miss my friend, and I will also miss those cowboys cookies. May she Rest In Peace. Alan

Aunt Colleen has always been one of my favorite family members. Her sense of humor was great and her love of family was tremendous. I will miss her terribly until the day I am called home to Glory. I pray God keeps my cousins and their family inHis loving care, as well as Aunt Cathy and my Dad. I love you all.
