Colette Pohlkamp was born on December 6th 1958 in Little Falls, Minnesota. She is the daughter of Marie Stangl Pohlkamp and the late Lambert Pohlkamp. Colette attended St. Michaels Catholic Grade School in Buckman, MN and she was a 1977 graduate of Healy High School in Pierz, MN. She received her Bachelors degree in Physical Education and Health from St. Cloud State University in 1982. Colette was very dedicated to her work and shared her many talents in directing and guiding others. She began her food service career at the Onamia School District and shortly thereafter at the Brainerd School District as Director of Nutrition Services. Colette also taught at Central Lakes Community College to help many members of the local community learn the rules and guidelines of the food service industry. Colette was active in the food industry and was proud to serve as president of the Minnesota School Nutrition Association. Earlier in her career she enjoyed working at several restaurants and supper clubs sharing her love of cooking.

Colette was very caring, generous and passionate in all aspects of her life. Her Catholic faith was of utmost importance in her daily life. In her spare time Colette enjoyed spending time outside at her beautiful home in Garrison. Whether she was feeding or watching the birds and deer or mowing the lawn, Colette was in her own special haven. Colette also enjoyed golfing whether it be for leisure or a friendly little competition. She also enjoyed reading, biking, running and taking walks and supporting the Pierz Football team. One of Colettes biggest loves was being in the kitchen. She loved to share her baked goods that included her scrumptious caramel bars, the melt in your mouth caramel rolls (a favorite of her late Uncle Father Al Stangl), chocolate chip cookies, brownies and various candies with family, friends and others. She passionately took charge of meal planning for family gatherings and treated her family with meals fit for kings and queens.
