Pamela Ann McKeen Colonese 74, of The Villages, Florida, passed away peacefully on July 31, 2019 surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Newport, Rhode Island on February 27, 1945. She graduated from Seymour High School, class of 1962, in Seymour, Connecticut. She spent a number of years working in the library at Hall High School in West Hartford, Connecticut. She also worked for the State of Connecticut, Department of Public Works. Pam married Frank Colonese, Jr. of Derby, Connecticut, on June 15, 1963. They raised their children, Frank III, and Melissa Marie, on their small sheep farm in Tolland, Connecticut. They also lived in Derby, West Hartford, Union, Mystic, and Mansfield, Connecticut, before moving to The Villages, Florida. She was an avid art collector, a voracious reader, and loved traveling and fine dining. Pam loved singing Bobbie McGee at the top of her lungs with her grand daughter, Shelby, in her favorite convertible. Pam’s beloved dog Brandy, gave her many years of comfort and joy. She is predeceased by her sister Sheila McKeen Barrows and brother Frank McKeen. She is survived by her husband of 56 years, Frank Colonese, Jr., sister Susan McKeen Veslocki, son Frank Colonese III and wife Becky, daughter Melissa Colonese and her fiance Scott, granddaughter Shelby Colonese and her fiance Zachary, and all of her loving extended family. Pam loved to cook, and her secret pasta sauce recipe will be passed on for many generations. Memorial service is being planned for a later date in Connecticut.
