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. Through her challenges, she selflessly was still able to inspire and help lift up other cancer patients. Krysten was known for her sparkling blue eyes that could brighten up any room.
