Margaret H. Collin Passed away on April 2, 2014. She was born in Germany on May 10, 1915. She was the beloved aunt of Nancy Alexander of Tucson. She also leaves behind her cousins, Louise, Nancy and Steve Lubar and Cathy O'Toole all of Boston, Mass. Margaret was a talented musician but once the Nazis came to power she was no longer allowed to study or work. She fled Germany to England where she lived during WWII. She subsequently moved to the U.S. residing in Mass., CA, and finally Tucson, AZ. Margaret was an amazing woman who dedicated her life to helping Holocaust victims. She traveled the world as a reparations counselor helping people obtain restitution funds from Germany. She was a faithful attendee at services at Congregation Anshai Israel. Prior to that she participated in the choir at Temple Emanuel. With the assistance of her dear friend and accompanist, Susan Lake, she was able to give quarterly recitals at several Tucson area nursing homes for many years. Margaret was also a prolific writer. Her writings are held in the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. and in the Special Collection Department at the University of Arizona. A private Memorial Service will be held at a later date. Special thanks to the Handmaker staff for their compassion and quality care. Donations in Margaret's name may be made to Handmaker Jewish Services for the Aging, 2221 N. Rosemont, Tucson, AZ 85712.
