Mrs. Besack or “Bunny” to many, was an avid reader and intellectual and could engage in conversations on almost any topic. You never saw her without George holding her hand, and she could be found at all times with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was an active, vital role in their daily lives. Colliene and George were members of Anchor Yacht Club where they enjoyed their boat and love of the water. Her favorite place to be was with her family making memories at their home on the Chesapeake Bay where she would hold court for her great-grandchildren regaling them with funny stories and games. She was the most selfless, kind and loving woman on Earth and to her family, simply their most beloved and irreplaceable person. Colliene was very proud of the family she and George created and to her that was her life. To meet her was to simply fall in love with her and her memory will live on in each one of her proud children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
