She married Vasiliy Dmitriyevich, who disappeared during the World War II. Her daughter said: I remember how my mother asked fellow villagers who came from the front about her husband, about our father, but really no one saw how he died. And she remained alone with us, never got married again, she apparently loved him very much. They had five children (one son deceased as of 2019). Both she and her husband are the indigenous people of Inokovka 1-Ya village. She worked all her life on her own farm. At the some point of her life, she was awarded with the Medal "Veteran of Labour". Throughout her entire adult life, Kolomnikova lived with her daughter and son-in-law.

On her claimed 110th birthday, she was visited by the head of the Kirsanovsky District, Alexander Ivanovich, and the head of the village council, Aleksandr Mikhaylovich Yevstigneyev.
