Fundraiser ends on May 30, 2020

This fundraiser is to assist in granting the final wishes of Judy Collins for her memorial and burial arrangements.

Judith Mae Collins, age 78, of Erie, passed away peacefully on Saturday April 25, 2020.

She was born in Buffalo, NY on June 18, 1941, daughter to the late Leo G. and Julia (Kasic) Taylor, Sr. Judy graduated from South Park High School in 1960 before moving to Erie where she has lived, worked and raised her family. She worked at both Sarah A. Reed Nursing Home and St. Vincent’s Hospital before retiring in 1996 as a Certified Nurse Assistant and Ward Clerk. She is cherished by her surviving children William J. Collins III, Jeanne (Paul Ray) Kitcey, Michael (Elizabeth) Collins, Kathleen Mannion, Julie (Alvin) Whan, Teresa (Michael) Writesel, and Margaret (Matt) Culver.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Leo and Julia Taylor, and her sisters Thomasine Johnson, Virginia Rosenow, Gloria Kirker, and Louise Shaw. She is survived by her brothers Joseph (Barbara) Taylor, James (late Diane) Taylor, her sister Carol (Dick) Hassett, her cats Cocoa, Anakin, Patrick and Feral Cheryl, her dog Lulu, and many loving grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and visiting grandpuppies.

Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Burton Westlake Funeral Home, 3801 W. 26th St. Erie, PA 16506. Due to the current circumstances services are limited and private. No flowers are needed unless you wish for one to be planted at her house. The weeping cherry tree outside her front window is in full bloom in her honor, and her cardinals are there daily as a reminder that she is still with us.

Memorial contributions can be made directly to Michael Collins in care of Burton Westlake Funeral Home or via this website link at tmcfunding.com. Any funds in excess of this goal, which is strictly for Burton Funeral Home, will be applied to her internment request to be honored when it is legally permitted due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Condolences can be sent through the website obituary at www.Burtonfuneralhomes.com
