Jessica and family, I am so very sorry for your heart ache. I didn't know your mother but if Jessica is any reflection of her mother, then Mrs. Collins was a very sweet, classy Lady.My thoughts & prayers are with you, during this difficult time.

Beverly was a kind and gentle person. I remember her in the halls of Meeker High School with her friend Linda Ward Case. Those times were simple, honest, and gave us all a good foundation for our future. Beverly and I transacted some business in the 80's. She again showed her honesty, kindness and good nature.
I will remember her fondly as my thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

Beverly was the best stepmother I could've asked for! We never even used the word step to describe our relationship. Beverly treated me as one of her own children from the very first time we met. She was my father's best friend, companion, and true love. The happiness they shared is what I hope to model my marriage after. My heart will forever be broken that she is no longer here, but I thank God that he allowed me to be a part of her life. I cherish every memory. I love you Beverly. I'll take care of daddy for you. :)

Leanna, Geary, Brad & Jessica and Curt - Please know I'm thinking of all of you and keeping your families in my prayers. Your mom was just a young girl when I first met her with her Uncle Shorty - but she was always such a sweetie - and so nice to be around. You have many wonderful memories - hang on to them - they will get you and Curt through the rough days ahead. Love, Aunt Lola

My heart and prayers go out to you all.

I remember Beverly as a little girl and childhood friend. We were neighbors at one time and spent some fun times together. We rode the same school bus for awhile. She was a precious friend and school mate.
I know she will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

God bless you all with His presence, comfort and peace.
