Graveside services for Kelly Marie Collins will be held on Tuesday, May 31, 2022, at 10:00 AM at Shoat Springs Cemetery with Colby Bryant officiating. Kelly went to be with the Lord on Friday, May 27, 2022, in Hugo, Oklahoma at the age of 61.
Kelly was born March 18, 1961, to Don and Jaris McKinley in Meadville, Pennsylvania. She lived most of her life in North Bend, Oregon and Valliant, Oklahoma. Kelly married the love of her life, Randy Collins, on May 17, 2003, and they made their home on a cattle ranch in the Frogville community south of Hugo, OK. Kelly worked in banking as a teller and a loan officer. She enjoyed spending time with Randy, shopping trips with her daughter and granddaughter, talking to her family and friends, and reading. She was an animal lover and especially fond of dogs and cats. She had a number of dogs through the years that she loved - many of them named Dixie.
While Kelly endured great physical pain the last several years of her life, she never lost her indomitable spirit which was an inspiration to her family.
Kelly is preceded in death by her mom Jaris Holland and her stepdad, Ed Holland.
Kelly is survived by her husband, Randy Collins of the home; two daughters, Tabetha Evans and husband Chad of Blossom, TX, Kelli Jo Bates and husband Craig of Hugo, OK; parents, Don & Sue McKinley of Valliant, OK; her siblings Pam Slater and husband Lee of Oklahoma City, OK, Patrick McKinley and wife Dove of Houston, TX, DeeDee Manning and husband Don of Valliant, OK, Bo Watkins and wife Christy of Valliant, OK; Paul Cory of Florida and Nathan Cory of Washington; four grandchildren, Lexie Jones and Ryder Evans of Blossom, TX, and Weston and Zane Bates of Hugo, OK; numerous nieces and nephews; and a host of friends.
