Hazel Colleen Harper, age 90, passed away on January 18, 2019 at the home of her son in Powell, TN. Colleen was born in Liberal, Kansas, to Lloyd and Ernestine Pelton. Colleen married her high school sweetheart, Eldon Lee Harper, of Susanville, California on April 2, 1948 in Reno, Nevada, after he returned from serving in the Navy during WWII. She was the loving mother of her four surviving children, Richard Lee Harper, Thomas Lloyd Harper, Nancy Harper Schindele, and James Eldon Harper. While living in Susanville, Colleen became a born-again Christian and was an active member of Calvary Baptist Church. They lived in Susanville until 1972, then moved to Twin Falls, Idaho. Colleen was widowed in 2002 and lived in Idaho until 2008 when she relocated to South Carolina and then to Tennessee. Colleen was faithful to her church and was most recently a member of Oak Ridge Baptist Church in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Colleen was blessed to be survived by her four children, 12 grand-children and 19 great grand-children. Even as she approached her final days, Colleen faced her physical challenges with grace, humor, and strength. Her care givers and visitors admired her sweet spirit and she was an encouragement to everyone that she met.
