Margaret May Pearce Anderson Collins was born March 29, 1933, to Clarence and Emma Pearce in Pritchett, Colorado. They left Pritchett to move to Springfield, Colorado, in 1943. She had two brothers, Floyd and Edmond, and one sister, Violet, all of whom have preceded her in death. She also had a younger brother who died shortly after birth.

She resided in Springfield until 1951 when she graduated high school. That summer she had been invited to go on vacation with her sister-in-law to Denver, Colorado. She ended up finding work and staying in Denver.

She married her first husband, James Anderson on June 6, 1954, and had three children, William "Bill", Wanda and Esther. They divorced in early 1959. He preceded her in death June 6, 1997. She married Clifford Collins on May 31, 1963, and moved to Ulysses, Kansas. They had one son, Norman.

Although Margaret worked several jobs throughout her life, the one that held the most impact and significance to her and her family was when she worked for Western Prairie Care Home. She worked there for 19 years as a nurses’ aide and medication aide.

Clifford Collins preceded her in death December 24, 1988, from cancer.
She attended the Patterson Avenue Church of God until she moved to Denver. She attended Sloan’s Lake Community Church and Altitude Church of God in Denver. She was a very devout servant of the Lord. She raised her children to love the Lord in both the good and bad times and to always be thankful and to help others when they can.
She lived 87 very wonderful years, passing away on May 2, 2020. She will forever be remembered for her generous, kind, loving soul; as well as her love for our Lord and Savior.
She is survived by her four children; William "Bill" Anderson of Holyrood, Kansas, Norman Collins of the home, Wanda Cook of Osage City, Kansas, and Esther Benjamin of Denver, Colorado; 13 grandchildren, five great-grandchildren; and her cousin, Betty.
Graveside service will be held Saturday, May 9, 2020, at 10:30 AM via Facebook Live on the Garnand Funeral Home Facebook page with Pastor Earl Heath officiating. Memorial contributions may be given to the American Diabetes Association in care of Garnand Funeral Home, 405 W. Grant Ave., Ulysses, Kansas 67880.

I worked many years with Margaret at Western Prairie Care Home in Ulysses. I valued her work ethic, appreciated the fact that I could always rely on her to be there on time and as scheduled and admired her devotion, attention and care she gave to her residents. I know she was greatly missed by all when she retired. Becky Cameron

I've known Margaret since I was a child. We all went to the First Church of God and Patterson Avenue Church of God in Ulysses, Ks. and later Sloan's Lake Community Church of God and Altitude Church in the Denver. CO area. Margaret was faithful in her attendance wherever she went. She always had a smile and when she saw me she would ask how things were going in Ulysses. She will be greatly missed by her church and friends and I'm sure by her family. We will all see each other again in Heaven!

I've known Margaret for years through Sloans Lake and Altitude churches. She was one of the sweetest people I've known but also capable of speaking her mind! I loved visiting with her before service. She was very adept at crafts and shared her work with others. You will be missed Margaret.
