Maria Torres Collins, 82, passed away Sunday, May 8, 2022 in Houston, TX. She was born November 10, 1939 in Chihuahua, Mexico. Maria was preceded in death by her parents, Remedios & Reyes (Burciaga) Torres; husband, Edward Collins; aunt, Carolina Huerta; 5 sisters and 1 brother.

We take comfort in knowing that she and Eddie are together once again, and she is also reunited with her parents, siblings, and aunt. Mom was the eldest child in her family. She had a loving and generous heart. Mom loved her family dearly. Her children and grandchildren were her whole world! Mom was a very dedicated fan of the Houston Oilers, Houston Texans, and Houston Astros. She almost never missed watching a game. Two of her greatest memories were meeting Jose Cruz and Billy "White Shoes" Johnson back in the early 80's. She attended every "Love Ya Blue" homecoming at the Astrodome. Mom was employed with Harrison Equipment Company for over 30 years, and made many lifelong friends there. Visitation will be held Friday, May 13, 2022 from 5-8 PM at Heights Funeral Home, with the Rosary being recited at 7 PM. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Collins family.
