COLLINS, Krysten Nicole, 18, of Doswell, went to be with the Lord May 1, 2012. Survivors include her mother, Teresa Bruner; her father, J.P. Collins; three sisters, Angela, Shelby and Marie Collins; two stepbrothers, Dalton and Dustin Collins; five grandparents, Ethel Turbeville, Ken and Donna Bruner, and Earl and Connie Collins; 14 aunts and uncles, seven nieces and nephews, and 12 cousins. Krysten fought a long and courageous battle with neuroblastoma. In her short time here, she touched many lives and led them to the Lord.

Her Celebration of Life will be held 2:30 p.m. Sunday at Beaverdam Baptist Church, 19110 Beaver Dam Rd., Beaverdam, Va. 23015.
