Betty S. Collins Obituary
Collins, Betty S. 08/07/1936 ~ 07/27/2013 SAN DIEGO -- Born in Williams Oklahoma, Betty moved to California at a very young age. In 1952, she met the love of her life, Bill Collins. A year later they were married and started their 58 year journey together. Sadly she lost her loving husband on May 7, 2012. Betty loved being with her family above anything else. She enjoyed watching her children and grandchildren play all of their various sports and attend their school activities; she was their biggest cheerleader. Her baking and cooking abilities were loved by all, Betty's Christmas candy will be especially missed. Betty always stood by her children, supporting and loving them no matter what. Through her entire life, she always put the needs of family and friends before her own. Betty was very witty and always had some great one-liners that often left you laughing or shaking your head. She touched so many lives and has left wonderful memories for each of us to cherish in our hearts forever. Betty leaves behind a loving family: son Bill and wife Sandy, daughter Debi Bray and husband Bob, son Bobby and wife Linda, son Todd, eight grandchildren, Michelle, David, Justin, Kara, Jared, Kelsey, Tyler, Jillian and great- grandsons, Braiden and Jacob. There will be no public services, the family instead will hold a private celebration of her life
