Colleen Gale Sanford

January 27, 1959 - May 6, 2023


Colleen Gale Sanford (nee Metz), beloved wife of Greg Sanford passed away peacefully May 6 at the age of 64. She is survived by her sons Matthew Behman and Jessie Behman, numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. She is remembered with much love by many friends and family.

Colleen grew up in Aldergrove where she loved to garden with her grandfather, instilling a life long passion for growing plants. She shared her smile with everyone, was quick to laugh and could light up a room with her positive energy and radiance. She changed the lives of many people she worked with for the better including co-workers and clients alike. Colleen loved to grow things and had the most magnificent gardens at her home in which she lovingly spent many hours with Greg building their oasis. She was also a gifted and creative artist. She was beautiful inside and out, well loved and loved well.

She will be dearly missed by all that knew her. Flowers are gratefully declined. Those who wish, please make a donation in Colleen’s memory to the Hospice Society.
