January 8, 1953 - December 19, 2012
It is with heartfelt sadness, that we regret to inform you that Elly Collins suddenly passed away at the age of 59. Survived by her mother Joanne, husband Bill, children Dan (Michelle), Terry (Lyle), Richard (Breanna), grandchildren Colton, Avery, Cheyenne, Savannah, Logan, Leah, Brooklyn and Spencer. Elly was the oldest of 5 children, loved her dogs and quilting, she will be greatly missed by many. Meeting her in heaven is her father Rijk, granddaughter Jocelyn, in laws Marjorie & Charles Collins. If so desired, in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to BC Children's hospital or Variety Club in her name. A Celebration of life will be held in the new year.
