Colleen was born on February 15, 1932 in Springdale, Arkansas to Simon and Ethel Graham. Colleen always had a talent for singing and in her teenage years joined a gospel quartet that was broadcast on the radio. During this time Colleen met the love of her life, William Page Hill, when his best friend-who was dating Colleen, asked Page to stand in for him instead of breaking a date. They married shortly after and enjoyed 63 years of marriage.

Colleen retired from that position in 1994, when she and Page moved back to Arkansas. Colleen loved to work on crafts and needlepoint. She made sure that every member of the family had a handcrafted Christmas stocking. Colleen was a member of Eastern Star, ABWA, and Highland Heights Untied Methodist Church in Altus. Colleen always had a smile on her face, a great sense of humor, a love for life and will be dearly missed.
