~ ~ A Memorial ~ ~

We had a memorial for Mom at the Fairbanks Pioneer's Home on November 14, 2015.  More than 100 people came.  Many shared stories about Mom and how they enjoyed and appreciated her.  It was a moving time for all of us.

Mom wrote a chapter in Collins Family History 1740 to 1977.  We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
