Lottie “June” Collins, age 93, of Fort Gratiot, formerly of Avoca, went to her heavenly home on Friday, April 17, 2020.

Her love of children was evident throughout her life. She was a long-time worshipper at Avoca Methodist Church teaching their Vacation Bible School until their move to Fort Gratiot. Then attended Blue Water Free Methodist Church and most recently the First Church of the Nazarene, Port Huron. She also loved her quilting group that met each week. Lottie, or June as she preferred to be known, would like you to remember her as a woman who cared for any and all who crossed her path. Her grandmother skills were legendary to her grandchildren. No sacrifice too great, or too small was spared if there was a need.

Surviving are her sons, Gordon R. (Margie) Collins, of Avoca, Dennis L. (Linda) Collins of Croswell, Gale M. (Marilyn) Collins of Avoca; a sister, Betty Goward (Bill) of Lapeer; numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Her husband, Russel H. Collins of 73 years, preceded her in death. Also preceding her were her parents, Clyde and Elizabeth Smith of Capac; brothers, Arthur Smith, Keith Smith, Dave Smith, and Dale Smith; and sisters, Rose Mary Williams and Evelyn Korgynski.

Due to the restrictions of events, a private funeral service will be held on Monday, April 20, 2020, at 11 a.m. at Smith Family Funeral Home-Hancock Street. The funeral service will be live streamed to Lottie's obituary page at at the time of the service. Interment and graveside services will follow at Springhill Cemetery in Fargo.

Our deepest condolences to you in the loss of a wonderful mother, grandmother, and friend. We will miss June dearly, but we are grateful to God to have had her as a part of our church family. We are grieving today—especially in that we cannot join you in person to tell you over and again how much June meant to us, as individuals and as a church family. However, we know that blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted—and we look forward through the eyes of faith to that day when we will be reunited with June and with Russ again. (What a day, glorious day, that will be!)

We love you, and we are praying for you today.

In Christ,

Your family at Port Huron First Church of the Nazarene

Dear Aunt June,I have such fond memories of you when I was a child. I would stay at your house quite often and during this time you would let me help you cook and bake. Your famous Christmas cookies soon became my famous cookies year round.You also taught me how to swim when I was about 10 during a camping trip you and Uncle Russ took me on. The memories are endless! May God Bless. I am going to miss you so much. Please give Uncle Russ my Love. Love, Lynn Ann Smith
