Joyce Mary Collins

Our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother was called home to the Lord on Tuesday, May 18, 2021 with her loving family by her side. She had just celebrated her 87th birthday. Daughter of the late Catherine Keegans, Joyce was born May 16, 1934 in Glasgow, Scotland. She met the love of her life, Jim, while he was stationed in Glasgow. She then traveled to the United States via the Queen Mary in 1956. She was married to James Alfred Collins on September 17, 1960 in Saginaw, Michigan. He predeceased her March 11, 1986. She was a member of Cathedral of Mary of the Assumption. Joyce enjoyed her friends, especially being with her family and had a love for stray animals.

Surviving to cherish her memory are one daughter and three sons, Laura “Lori” Aranjo, Michael A. Collins, Kevin and Anne Collins, Daniel “Danny” Collins and his fiancé Kris Harrington, all of Saginaw; five grandchildren, Anthony and Allison Aranjo, Jessica Aranjo, Rita, Allison and Luka Collins; two step-granddaughters, Brittanie Darling and Tori Duke; three great-grandchildren; Adrian, Abram and Amelia Aranjo; two brothers-in–law, Edward Collins, Chico, California; John Kiley, Pahrump, Nevada; several nieces and nephews. Joyce was preceded in death by her sister, Tyra McKee, many brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law. “WE WILL MISS YOU DEARIE!”

Funeral Liturgy will take place 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, May 25, 2021 at The Cathedral of Mary of the Assumption, 615 Hoyt, Saginaw, Michigan. Rev. Fr. John R. Johnson will officiate with burial in Mt. Olivet Cemetery. Friends may visit at the Snow Funeral Home, 3775 N. Center Rd. (between Shattuck and McCarty), where the family will be present on Monday from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Tuesday from 10:00 a.m. until time of service. Those planning an expression of sympathy may wish to consider memorials to Riversbend Rehabilitation Center, St. Jude Children’s Hospital or Saginaw City Rescue Mission.

I enjoyed our talks when I was younger and how supportive and honest she was. She had a heart of gold.
