Colleen was born November 7, 1926, in Hedley, TX, to Tom R. and Grace (Dotson) Morgan and passed away from this life on February 9, 2018, at her home in Enid.

She graduated from Morton, Texas High School in 1942. She married Elvis R. (Jiggs) Baker in 1945. Daughter Donna Ann was born in 1946, and Kay was born in 1947. The girls' father died in 1954, leaving Colleen with two small children and a new restaurant in Lubbock. 

Sending her girls by train to Muleshoe to stay with their grandparents during the week, she made the Baker Steakhouse a success, selling it in 1958, and moving to Muleshoe to be live near her parents. 

Colleen married James L. Freeman, shortly after moving to Muleshoe on September 6, 1958, and again the girls had a loving Daddy in their home. Jim and Colleen celebrated their 59th anniversary last year.

Colleen had a long and varied business career. Colleen and Jiggs ran restaurants in Morton, Denver City, Levelland, and Lubbock. In Muleshoe, Colleen worked for Fry and Cox, and at Muleshoe Independent School District as the superintendent's secretary.

After moving to Amarillo, she worked at the Texas Tech Pantex Research Center, and Bell Helicopter. In Austin she worked for the Texas Welfare Fraud Division. In Houston she did interior design and furniture restoration and was a SCORE counselor.

Jim and Colleen moved back to Lubbock in 1984, and enjoyed many years of retirement. They traveled to all 48 states by RV; they also saw Europe, Caribbean, British Isles, Canada, Mexico, Hawaii, Alaska, and New Brunswick.
