Mrs. Chute was born September 9, 1942, in Newberry, Michigan to Archibald and Geraldine (MacNeil) Madigan. She moved to Niles in May of 1968 with her husband in his transfer from Flint as a Michigan State Police Trooper.

She was a caring mother to her three daughters, Leslie (Joe) Surch of Coloma, Michigan, Susan (Rod) Taylor of Buchanan, and Cynthia (Rick) Wolkens of Niles. She was a devoted grandmother to her six granddaughters and two grandsons. A grandson, Benjamin, preceded her in death in 1993. Also surviving is her sister, Kathie (Pat) Mills of Midland, Michigan. An older brother, James Madigan, preceded her in death.
Colleen was an active parishioner of Saint Mark Catholic Church. She was the past chairperson of the annual church Christmas Bazaar and a member of the Christian Mothers.

She also served immediate past A-3 regional director of N.A.M.E. A former Girl Scout, she eventually became a leader. The foundations she learned helped Colleen operate for twenty-one years a home day care provider service named Colleen's Kiddie Korner. She then founded the Southwest Michigan Day Care Association.
