Helen M. Collins



Helen M. Collins, 93, was called home on Wednesday November 29, 2017. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 64 years, "Jack", three brothers and two sisters.

Helen is survived by her son Frank, of Estancia, NM; son Paul, & wife Sherry, of Los Lunas, NM; daughter Nancy Surette & husband Jon, of Wallingford, VT. "Grammy" Helen has eight grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Helen's witty remarks and off-handed humor made many people smile and often laugh out loud. She was always ready with a kind word to someone in need. Helen had a fiercely stubborn will to get through whatever life threw at her â€" she would "pull up her bootstraps" and get things done.

Helen will be profoundly missed. "Come visit when you got nothing on!"
