Preceded in death by her Father, James Collins; Mother, Shirley Wendell; Stepfather Richard Wendell; in-laws Melvin and Shirley Rager; and Stepmother, Martha Collins. Survived by loving husband and soulmate of 46 years, Gary; wonderful daughter and best friend Jennifer Gorzelsky, her husband Brett and the apple of her eye, grandson Axel. Siblings Marsha Reed (Dennis), Richard Wendell II (Christine), and Kevin Collins. Brothers-in-law Denny, Kemp, and Mark (Mary). Also survived by numerous aunts, nieces, nephews, and her Bestform girls- you know who you are and wonderful cats Ozzy and Finny a.k.a Little One. Formerly worked at Bestform and the American Red Cross. She enjoyed crafting, crocheting, gardening, but most of all she enjoyed sitting on the beach watching the waves.
