Marilyn was born in Robinson, IL on June 4, 1937 to parents Charles Johnson and Lou (Boyd) Kaley. They preceded her in death. Also preceding her in death was her son Edward Raymond Collins, great granddaughter Madison and two brothers: David and Robert Kaley.
Marilyn is survived by her children Michael Collins of Lilian, AL and Deanna Falls-Norman (Jack) of St. Joseph, her daughter in law Sandy Collins of Urbana, her sister Virginia Lansbury of Lilian, AL, five grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren.
She was a graduate of Robinson High School and a member and Missionary for Vineyard Church in Urbana.
Marilyn was a lover of woodworking, the Cubs, travel, German Shepherds and spreading the word of God. She enjoyed Tuesday dinners, cooking and spending time with her family. Some of her fondest memories were made while toting her grandchildren across the U.S. for family vacations and involving them in her mission work in Mexico.
Our family takes great comfort in knowing she is finally walking on the golden streets of Heaven.
