Colleen was born and raised in Belleville, IL. She graduated from Belleville East High School and studied at Belleville Area College. Colleen married John “Jack” F. Nold Sr. on May 26, 1978. She had a career as a dental assistant working for her father, Dr. John D. Kubitschek, for many years before deciding to stay home full-time with her children. Her hobbies included cake decorating, ceramics, reading, and in her later years she enjoyed Bunco and the company of her four-legged friend, Abigail “Abby.” Colleen was very active in studying family genealogy; she was especially proud of her Irish Heritage.
