Colleen Mary Hugo-Badour

 Colleen Mary Hugo-Badour, 57, of Essexville, our kind, gentle, honest, fun-loving wife, sister, Godmother, aunt, and wonderful friend was born into eternal life on the morning of Sunday, December 17, 2017 at her home surrounded by family, following a courageous battle with cancer. Colleen was born in Bay City on December 31, 1959, the daughter of the late Arthur Nicholas and Mary Grace (Osterhout)Hugo. Colleen graduated from Bay City Central in 1978 and was a graduate of Great Lakes Junior College. Colleen married Jonathan Badour on May 15, 1998 and he survives her. Colleen was a member of St. Jude Thaddeus Parish, and along with her husband, was an active member of the Gold Wing Road Riders Association, where she held many positions and was the chapter prankster. She treasured the many friendships, camping, and fun events through the years. Colleen shared the love of stock car racing from the time she was a little girl when her parents took her to Tri-City Motor Speedway. She later enjoyed NASCAR, with Sterling Marlin being her favorite driver. In her final years, Colleen enjoyed Friday nights again at Tri-City Motor Speedway.
