Yvonne Anne Collins
Yvonne Anne Collins, 84, of LaVale, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Thursday, Sept. 5, 2019, at Riverview Regional Medical Center.
Born June 5, 1935, in LaVale, less than a mile from the start of the National Pike, outside Cumberland. She was the daughter of the late Marguerite B. (Gelrud) Wineland and Mickey McDermott.
Mrs. Collins started her career working as one of two to three women out of approximately 50 people at Motorola as a draftsman and designer. She finished her career, retiring in the 1980s working for Microdyne, putting together intricate electronic components for the space shuttles. She continued with her voracious reading appetite and love for working out puzzles such as crossword puzzles, sudoku puzzles, etc., for the remainder of her life.
She was a member of LaVale United Methodist Church. Even after being physically incapable of attending services, she was adamant about trying to ensure that she continued to receive newsletter updates from the church.
Mrs. Collins is survived by her loving sons, Dr. Timothy J. Collins, his wife, Monica, and Michael John Collins; her four grandchildren, Gretchen, Michael, Steven and Michelle; and her sister, Russa Jones, and her husband, Russell; and her nieces, Kelly and Stacy.
Special memorial services were held to honor Yvonne Collins on Friday, Sept. 13, 2019. C.J. Collins, her husband who preceded her in death, was also honored at these memorial services.
RestLawn Memorial Gardens conducted the memorial services.
