Colette Lenore Thomas, 61, of Pine City, MN.  passed away Wednesday, June 8, 2022, in Aitkin, MN. with family by her side. She was born July 24, 1960 in Mora, MN. to parents: Russell Ernest and Leella Mae Thomas.  Colette graduated from Pine City High School, class of 1978. Throughout the years she did factory work, but her heart was in caregiving. She had her own daycare for many years. When she moved on from daycare, she decided to pursue being a PCA. She absolutely loved the people she cared for. Colette liked to fish, go camping, cook/bake, canning, crochet, knit, play yahtzee (she was very good at it!), but most of all she loved spending time with friends and family. Her children and grandchildren were what she called "her life".

5 grandchildren: Jaidynn and Diesel Baillargeon,
