Betty Collins

Betty (Machala) Collins was born February 1, 1948, in Durand, the daughter of Charlie and Emma (Sabo) Machala. She graduated in 1966 from Swartz Creek High School.

Betty was a horticulturist at heart; she loved creating and nurturing her flower gardens, her goal was to attract as many butterfly species as possible. She had a sweet and gentle soul, always placing the needs of others first, both human and animal alike, and an infectious laugh everyone would recognize.

She is survived by her mother Emma; brother Fred Machala of Lennon; daughter Rayleenn Collins of Arizona; son's Jeff of Linden and Todd Collins of Portland, MI and two grandchildren Mya and Dawson Collins.

Her father Charlie Machala preceded her in death.
