Carol Ann Puckett Collins

April 22, 1949 - February 2, 2022

Carol Ann Collins, 72, was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.  She left this world peacefully in her home on Wednesday, February 2nd, 2022.

A lifelong Virginia native, Carol was well-loved and touched many hearts.  She always provided love and support of her family.

She was more than a mother-in-law. She was my mom. She could not have loved me more than if I were here own flesh and blood… and I her. I don’t grieve for her for she is in a far better place without any pain. I grieve for the family she has left behind.
