Betty Collins

January 11, 1932December 5, 2020

Betty Mae Collins (Fulford), she came to us January Eleventh, 1932, in a log cabin in old Fairfield Ohio. A few years later the family bought a house from the Sears- Roebuck Catalog and had it erected on South Central Avenue, a new section of Fairfield Ohio at that time. Her birth family grew to include father (Paul), mother (Grace), five sisters Mickey, Pauline, Shirley, Jean and Beverly. This was a full, happy four room home. Betty grew up during the great depression and World War ll to become a gentle and loving person to all who knew her. She loved Jesus and would pray for you when she sensed a need, or asked. Betty married the love of her life, Robert (Bob) Collins upon his return from World War ll, they had three children Robert Jr. (Shirley), Joseph (Cathy), and Brenda (Steve). She loved God, her family and had a rich full life. No one ever entered the home on Harvard Avenue that went away hungry or dissatisfied. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, son (Joe), and five sisters (Mickey, Pauline, Shirley, Jean, and Beverly). If lately you perceive the world to be darker and more bleak it is because God has called one of the lights to come home.

Betty Collins was a great friend and also a great neighbor I would always go over there and give her some support and she would always be watching Ellen or the news and everyday an alarm would go off and it would sing Joy to the world (if I’m right) and it would cheer her up and every year for my birthday she would make me some peanut butter cookies and they were delicious so I may or may not have asked her for the recipe and from that day I fell in love with them... anyways she was a great friend and more important a great neighbor. Miss you and praying for you.

Aunt Betty was always the kindest and sweetest person I've ever known. Rest In Peace Betty. I wish I could come to the funeral, but am not allowed to get into crowds right now. I did give to Hospice of Dayton in her memory.
