Colleen Hinzman, age 86, of Parkersburg, WV, arrived at her final destination on Saturday, November 19, 2022.
She was born on March 25, 1936, to the late Virgil and Ruby Conrad. She attended school in Beverly, WV, and married Parker Lee Hinzman on May 1, 1950.
She is survived by her son, James Hinzman and his wife Dana of Bishop, Georgia, her daughter Vickie Pullins and her husband Chuck of Daniels, WV, her grandchildren, Jim Mike Hinzman and his wife Tanya of Bishop, Georgia, Chad Pullins and his wife Amanda, of Charleston, WV, Robert Lee Hinzman and his wife Christa of Bishop, Georgia, Adrienne Wilson of Westerville, Ohio, David Pullins and his partner Zennia of Ward, Colorado and her great grandchildren Ava, Caroline, Charlotte and Lilly Hinzman, Marianne Mitchell, Jordan and Anna Campbell, Cami, Lexi and Grayson Pullins, Marcus and Lucas Gonzalez, Xavier Wilson, Rory Whelan, and her sister Charlene Sue Galland of Parkersburg, WV, and numerous nieces and nephews.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Virgil and Ruby Conrad and her brothers, Lawrence, Troy, Kenneth and Virgil Conrad.
She served a large portion of her life as a Pastor’s wife and was a caregiver for numerous families in the Parkersburg, WV area. Colleen was a great woman of faith who loved her family and friends deeply. When life went sideways, she still laughed, and we saw Jesus in her. When she pushed away comfort to comfort others, we saw Jesus in her. When she wrestled with deep pain and continued choosing God, we saw Jesus in her. When she showed us how to Hope despite grave disappointment, we saw Jesus in her.
Family, friends and others whose lives Colleen Hinzman has touched are invited to join us at United Methodist Temple in Beckley, WV on Saturday, November 26th for the visitation from 5:00-6:00 p.m. and her celebration of life from 6:00-7:00 p.m. with the Rev. Dr. Dale Waters officiating.
