August 7, 1947 – October 24, 2022

Colleen Mary Bickman, age 75, of Howard Lake passed away peacefully on Monday, October 24, 2022 at Ridgeview Medical Center in Waconia with her family by her side.

She was born on August 7, 1947 in Hutchinson the daughter of Donald & Lucille (Campbell) Bickman.

Colleen graduated from Dassel-Cokato High School.

She was employed for thirty-four years at Honeywell in Golden Valley. She lived outside of Howard Lake for most of her life, moved to Hutchinson for a short period and was last living in Howard Lake at The Good Samaritan.

Colleen enjoyed traveling, especially bus trips, watching The Hallmark Channel and shopping. She always had a way to make you laugh with her goofy sense of humor. She always wanted to be filled in on the latest drama around, or what was going on in your life and what you were up to.  She didn’t care to talk about herself, she always cared more about the ones she loved. If you needed an ear to rant to, you could trust her! She will be greatly missed by everyone; her family and by many nurses at The Good Samaritan.

Survived by a daughter: Jennifer Bickman of Winsted; grandchildren: Michael Bickman (significant other Jenna Dolezal) and Lucille McNeill; brother: Donald Bickman of Howard Lake and a sister: Mary Entinger of Glencoe; other relatives and friends.

Preceded in death by her parents and by a brother John P. Bickman.
