Colleen Kelly Coll, on February 14, 2022. Formerly of Plymouth Meeting. Beloved wife of the late Joseph J. Loving mother of Ryan P. (Marianna) and the late Moira. Grandmother of Fiona Kelly, William Coll and Alexandra Coll. Sister of Sharon Gormley (Chris), Vince Kelly (Chrisanne), Jack Kelly (Connie), Jim Kelly (Bette), Michael Kelly (Susie), and Anthony Kelly (Colleen). She is also survived by many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents Genevieve and Thomas Vincent Kelly. Colleen Kelly Coll, born 1947 to Thomas Vincent and Genevieve Kelly, left a lasting legacy on this world. A member St. Philip Neri Parish, Colleen grew up in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania. The oldest of seven, Colleen spent her younger years alongside, and as a mentor figure to, her sister Sharon and her five brothers, Vince, Jack, Jimmy, Michael, and Anthony. Outside of school, Colleen filled her time helping with her younger siblings, playing sports, and spending time with her many friends. When we think of Colleen, we often admire her friendships. Some of her truest friends were those she met at the age of five. An alum of Mount Saint Joseph Academy High School, Colleen went on to receive a degree from Saint Joseph’s University. 1966 proved a lifechanging year for Colleen. One summer night in her hometown of Plymouth Meeting, Colleen met Joe Coll, the man with whom she’d spend her next 51 years. Joe and Colleen were the best of partners, a true team. Together, they raised their two children, Ryan and Moira, and helped support the upbringing of their three grandchildren, Fiona, William, and Alexandra. Over the years, Joe and Colleen lived in various parts of Philadelphia, all of which provided beautiful memories. They spent their early years in East Falls, followed by many years in Chestnut Hill, where their children were raised. We'd be amiss if we failed to remember their years spent at the Jersey Shore. Having summered there all her life, that continued as Colleen and Joe raised their own little family. Each summer, Colleen and Joe spent their days in Sea Isle, and later Avalon. Though the Philadelphia area and the Jersey Shore always felt like home, Colleen’s other happy place was Chatham, Massachusetts. Since 1994, Joe and Colleen spent two plus weeks each summer on the Cape. This was always where Colleen seemed most peaceful. Following the college years, in her early years of marriage, Colleen worked as a teacher, a profession that fit her just right. She started teaching in Manayunk, followed by a stint at Our Lady of Lourdes, alongside her best friend Genie McClintock. In 1977, Colleen’s career path changed, when Joe took a leap of faith in his new adventure – the Glenside Pub. Though being a restaurant owner was really Joe’s dream to begin with, Colleen quickly fell in love with the idea. Almost immediately, Colleen was the face of The Pub. For 43 years, the Coll’s immersed themselves in the Glenside community, making the Pub a staple in the 19038. They built it with love, treated their customers like family, and became one of the best spots in Glenside. The Pub didn’t gain its reputation out of luck. Colleen and Joe poured their hearts and souls into our family gem at 122 S. Easton Rd., one that Ryan and family continue to hold tight to this day. Aside from her time spent raising her children, spending time with her husband and being the shining face of the Pub, Colleen’s passions were her family and her friends. She made it a point to stay close to everyone, not because she had to, but because she wanted to. Colleen wanted close relationships with each member of her large family, her children, siblings, in laws, countless nieces and nephews, and especially her grandchildren. Fiona became like another daughter to her and in more recent years, watching William and Alexandra grow into the people they are today brought her so much joy. Colleen was one of the most special people to ever grace this world. She cared so deeply for others, epitomizing the definition of selflessness. She walked into a room and brought with her a calming presence, a smiling face, and style. We will remember her always, looking back with gratitude on the lessons she taught us and the memories and love she left behind. A Funeral Mass to celebrate Colleen and Joe will be held on Monday, March 14, 2022 at 11AM at St. Luke the Evangelist Church 2316 Fairhill Ave Glenside, PA 19038.
