Colleen Beryl White crossed to the light on the evening of June 13, 2021. Born Sept. 4, 1937, to Ellis and Inga White of Bremerton, Washington.
Colleen lived in the Northwest her entire life, from Seattle to Port Angeles. She owned property in Irondale and built her cabin there. Some may remember her as Liberty Hawk, fighting for the rights of property owners to build on their land. In 1996 Colleen opened her bookstore, Unicorn HQ in Port Hadlock. Over the course of almost 25 years, Colleen touched the lives of thousands of people through her paintings, as well as astrology and Tarot readings.
Colleen is survived by her children; Anne, Michael (wife Noriko and daughter Tiona, Patricia (son Bryan, daughter Tanya), Caroline (husband Bill and daughter Ellie).
Above all, Colleen was an artist, she left a legacy of artwork depicting Pacific Northwest landscapes, images of inner reflection, and metaphysical ideas. So many of her paintings are scattered near and far — if you have one of her pieces, her family is asking for photos of them, please.
Colleen was a complicated person to understand, eccentric in quite valuable ways. She will be missed by many, remembered by many more, and will continue to live on in our hearts.
