She was a retired English teacher at Cocke County High School in Newport, TN. She was a volunteer with Safespace for abused women in Cocke County, TN. After retirement, she enjoyed her sweet babies in the nursery at First Baptist Church Dandridge and later in years at Moselle Memorial Baptist Church.

She was preceded in death by Gaston L. Collins, Sr., her husband of 71 years; son, Gaston L. Collins, Jr.; parents, Frank and Catherine Lindley; great-granddaughter, Heather Stanley and great-great granddaughter, Macklin Clifton of Moselle; several brothers and sisters and son-in-laws, Willie Thompson and David Williamson of Moselle and Don Cate of Dandridge.

She is survived by her daughters, Janie Thompson, Betty Williamson of Moselle, Susan Greene, JoAnne Cate; son, Eddie (Nancy) Collins of Dandridge; sister, Audrey Lindley Hill of Meadville, MS; several grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren representing five generations.
