AKWESASNE – Mrs. Colleen T. Bero, 57, of 42 Rooseveltown Road, passed away Sunday evening, December 23, 2018 at her home surrounded by her loving family.

Colleen was born July 12, 1961 in Utica, the daughter of the late William P. and Christine P. (Edwards) Wheeler. She attended schools in Utica and Massena. On October 30, 1983, she married Leroy W. Bero in Fort Covington with Justice Jerome Brockway, officiating.

Throughout her life, she worked at G&G Ice Cream Store, Bob’s Motel, Garrow’s Cigarette Factory, and Carey Terrance Cigarette Factory. She was a member of the Akwesasne Death Benefits Group and a communicant of St. Regis Catholic Church. She had a great love for being outdoors, whether it was fishing, working on her yard, or flower gardening – she found great peace outside. She also enjoyed tending to her houseplants, beading, and visiting the casino. Mostly, she cherished the time she was able to spend with her family, especially her grandchildren.

Colleen is survived by her husband, Leroy, her children, Leanne and Sean Armstrong and William Bero, all of Akwesasne; her grandchildren, Tyler, Taylor, and Taylin Armstrong; her sisters, Darlene and Bill Klotz, Maureen and Andy Bero, and Michelle and John Cole, all of Akwesasne; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by two daughters, Leah Bero on March 5, 1990 and Hattie S. Bero on July 19, 2009; her grandson, Zane Peck on March 10, 2010; and her brothers, Elmer J. Wheeler in 1960, John Wheeler in 1987, Anthony E. Wheeler in 2000, William J. Wheeler, Jr. in 2003, and Donald Wheeler in 2015.

Friends may call at the Akwesasne Homemakers starting Thursday 4:00 PM until 10:00 AM Saturday. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Saturday 11:00 AM at St. Regis Catholic Church.

Memorial contributions may be made in her memory to Hospice of the North Country.

I’m so sorry for the loss of this woman. My condolences go out to the Bero family. There’s a Scripture I would love to share with you that comforted me when I lost someone in death. It’s in Revelation 21:4 which says: “And he [God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” This is a promise from God that he will end death forever in the future and we will see our dead loved ones again!

Please accept my heart felt sympathy for the the loss of Dear Mrs.Colleen Bero. May you find comfort in the promise found in the holy scriptures Acts 24:15 which reads "And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust" and also she will return to her youth ("His flesh shall be fresher than a child’s: he shall return to the days of his youth" - Job 33:25) and she will enjoy her planting again as she used to enjoy here on earth with her family as God promises in Isaiah 65:21,22 ("... they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.) These scriptures are only few from many,personally help me in difficult situation we all live.I ope and pray theses scriptures bring you some comfort and peace in this time. God blessings
