A celebration of her life will be held June 6, 2015, at 4 p.m. in the Collinsworth Family Cemetery (Corner of 1593 and White Oak Loop) in White Oak, Kentucky. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her honor to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Bluegrass (RMHC of the Bluegrass P.O. Box 22414 Lexington, K.Y. 40522).
Mrs. Collinsworth was a woman of many colors and talents. Some of her most notable and colorful traits were her feisty grit for life and honesty, her tough, hard-working exterior, and her generous tenderheartedness. She believed in keeping a clean house, reaping a plentiful crop, canning and preserving her bounty, digging in the dirt, quilting a work of art, and baking an unforgettable pie. Quite simply, she was a special woman. Mrs. Collinsworth was preceded in death by her parents, Marsh and Ollie Messer Mills; her first husband of 41 years, Willie Collinsworth; her second husband of 12 years, Willard Collinsworth; son, Lowell Collinsworth; daughters, Teddie Vanderpool and Sheila Collinsworth; granddaughter, Stephanie Joseph; five brothers and two sisters. She is survived by her daughters, Helen Hennig (Doug), Daisy Collinsworth, and Regina Middleton (Larry); numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. The family wishes to extend special thanks and appreciation for the love, support and professionalism received from the staff of Hospice Advantage of Troy and Enterprise Home Health Care.
