Colleen Pedersen of Hampton Bays passed away December 24, 2022 with her loved ones at her side. She was born on November 25, 1964 in Astoria, New York to Margaret and John McMenamy and she later relocated to Hampton Bays to raise her children. She began working at the age of 18 at Local 153, Office of Professional Employees International Union, until she left in 2018 after 36 years of dedication and service. Friends and family will always remember Colleen, or "Col", as a bright light, a faithful friend, and the most generous soul. She could bring laughter to any situation, and the beauty that shone from her heart of gold will be missed deeply, but never be forgotten. She was predeceased by her husband, Jeffrey Pedersen, and her father John McMenamy. She is survived by her mother, Maggie McMenamy, her sister Michele, her brother Marc, her three children Taylor, Erik and Jack, and her grandson Julien. As our lives are forever changed without our Colleen in it, we will lean on our faith for strength and guidance, and we know in our hearts that she is finally resting...in peace. A visitation will be held on Thursday, December 29, 2022 from 4-7 pm at the Oconnell Rothwell Funeral Home, Southampton, with a Funeral Mass to be held Friday, December 30, 2022 at 11:00 am at the Our Lady of Poland Church in Southampton, with interment to follow at the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary Cemetery.
