Mrs. Collins was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where she provided service to her local congregation and community.

In her leisure, Mrs. Collins enjoyed sightseeing, listening to Italian music, canning various jellies, and crocheting. She also enjoyed bowling and belonged to several bowling leagues over the years. Mrs. Collins loved being with family and friends, attending weddings, and dancing at the receptions. She was generous and kind, and her family was of the greatest importance to her.

She leaves to cherish her memory son Kevin (Corina) Collins of Austin, Texas; daughter Kathy (Curtiss) Lipp of  North Jackson, Ohio; and grandchildren Rachel, Daniel (Adison), Sarah (Mitch), Gavin, Liam, Hannah, Alex, and Leo.
