“Colleen Shirley Hufford of Moore, Oklahoma passed from this life on Thursday, September 25, 2014. She was born January 5, 1960 in Landstuhl, Germany to parents Marshall and Gisela Thompson. Her family later moved to Great Falls, Montana where Colleen was raised.

On February 18, 1984 Colleen married the love of her life, KC Hufford in Great Falls, Montana. They settled in Moore, Oklahoma where their daughter, Kelli was born. Colleen was an avid hockey fan and could always be found at the rink cheering on the Blazers then the Barons! Above all though, her joy in life was her family, especially her granddaughter Riley.

The family has requested memorial donations be made to Catholic Charities, Children's Hospital, or the foundation of your choice in memory of Colleen.”

Representatives with the Hufford family said Colleen's daughter would like to share more information at the press conference about her mother.
