    She is going to the private sector.

    All my other colleagues are so happy she is leaving but she thinks they are just happy for her getting a great opportunity.

    IMHO iris lilies' advice on this is right on the money. This is not your situation to fix beyond being nonjudgmental but really direct with this coworker (for people like this we upgrade the "clue by four" to a "clue by six"). Whoever hired this person (HR, etc.) also should be included in handling his behavior.
