Colee Townsley-Grubb, age 26, of Joplin, Missouri passed away Thursday, March 10, 2016 at Freeman West Hospital.
Colee was born April 14, 1989 in Lamar to Lance and Jerri (Soma) Townsley. She graduated from Lamar High School in 2007 before attending MSU and later pursued a degree in radiology at Missouri Southern. In addition to being a devoted wife and mother, Colee was currently working as a sales associate at Joplin Sam’s Club.
On August 1, 2014, Colee married the love of her life, Sean Grubb and, on December 21, 2015, they welcomed their beautiful daughter, Kenadi Lane, to their family. Colee’s quick wit and keen sense of humor drew people to her and she loved the fellowship of her wide circle of close friends. She was a devoted KU fan and very enthusiastic about her Jayhawks, an avid animal lover and was especially fond of her Corgi, Nelli. Colee found joy in helping others and was always generous with her time and talents. Her final gift was the wonderful legacy she shared by being an organ donor.
