She was born March 12, 1940, in Wendell, Idaho, Clarence, and Aline Fallon of Jerome. Colleen was raised in Jerome where she graduated in 1958 from Jerome High School. She enjoyed meeting new people from every facet of her life while maintaining old friendships from childhood.
Enjoyment of life came easy for Colleen. In her early years, she loved dragging down Main Street in Twin Falls as well as hanging out with her friends at Dierkes Lake and dancing at the Top Hat.
She met her love of her life and married Norm Vollmer on June 24, 1961 in Twin Falls.
While working for American Real Estate from 1975-1983 Colleen and her good friend Mary Akkerman started a successful cleaning business “Broom Service.” She then moved with Norm to Pocatello, giving her the opportunity to work with the Franciscan Nuns. After a couple more moves, Colleen and Norm eventually found their way back home to Twin Falls.
Colleen enjoyed golfing, socializing with her friends, life on the patio, decorating her home and summers relaxing at the family cabin near Stanley.
