Colleen Jiannuzzi, 65, of Sylvania, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on September 27, 2020. She was born in Toledo, Ohio and was a graduate of Rogers High School. She met and married Bill, her beloved husband of 47 years; and together they raised six beautiful daughters. She was fiercely loyal and devoted to her family. She especially loved spending time with her ten grandchildren. In her life, she found joy pursuing her talents in drawing and painting, gardening and cooking. Colleen knew how to bring people together with the love she put into baking and cooking for others. As the original DIYer, she loved restoring furniture and estate sale hunting. Colleen was a consummate homemaker, and paid attention to details in order to make things “just right.” No matter the day or time, you could find her completing a home project, working in her garden, or restoring something old to make it beautiful again. She loved fresh cut flowers in her home; and if you stopped by for a visit, you were welcomed by the warm scent of something cooking in the oven… always from scratch. Her daughters have taken all they learned from her and implemented it into their own growing families today. She will be greatly missed by all.
Colleen is preceded in death by her parents Phillip and Norma Jean Allen, Uncle Donald Allen, and infant son Vincent Giovanni. She is survived by her husband William Jiannuzzi; daughters
Jennifer (Rick) Pinardo, Nicole Bazzoli, Angela Jiannuzzi, Sara (Mike) Klocinski, Maria (Matt) Johnsen, and Felicia (Chase) Yacko; grandchildren Olivia Fouty, Salvatore Pinardo, Giana Pinardo, Annie Bazzoli, Lena Bazzoli, Rebecca Klocinski, Noelle Klocinski, Charlotte Klocinski, Liam Yacko, and Benjamin Yacko; and siblings Tim Allen, Terry (Randy) Drewes, and Robert Allen.
