Backstory[edit | edit source]

Colleen Hickie was born in May 26 1939, the illegitimate daughter of Gordon Stewart and Mavis Hickie. Colleen was adopted by Mavis's husband Merv. In 1954, aged 14, Colleen became pregnant and gave birth to a daughter Maureen in March 1955. Maureen was adopted. In 1959, Colleen won the 'Miss Groper' beauty pageant. Colleen was good friends with Morag, Celia and Alf Stewart, unaware at the time they were her half siblings, the bumbling Colleen was proud of the fact she was a Stewart, and always believed in her heart that she was a true "Stewart". Morag later married Richard Bellingham.

In 1965, Colleen married Les Smart and they had a son Lance in 1968.

Colleen in 1988.

In March 1988 Colleen turned up briefly at Hogan's Store. She was a friend of Celia Stewart and they both gained a reputation as local busybodies. Colleen told Pippa Fletcher that Carly Morris had been sexually assaulted. This annoyed Carly as she did not get a chance to tell her first.

In 1988, Lance won AUS$500'000 and Colleen reappeared.

Colleen is still living in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA as of 2019. She would now be in turning 80th year
