J. Collins is Dead
Former Estherville Man Died Suddenly Saturday in Madison
Jay Collins, a former Estherville man, passed away Saturday morning at a hospital in Madison, Wis. Details of his illness and death were not given in the message sent to local relatives. He was taken to the hospital in Madison Friday evening preceding his death on the following Saturday morning.

Mr. Collins had visited with Estherville relatives and friends around Christmas time and while he seemed to be in excellent health he had developed a cough that seemed incurable. This together with heart trouble is thought to have brought about his death.

Romaine Collins, a nephew of the deceased man, left Saturday for Madison and will accompany the remains back to Estherville. The body is being cremated at Milwaukee, Wis., and the ashes will be returned here for burial beside those of his parents and wife in the Oak Hill cemetery.

Mr. Collins left Estherville about 30 years ago with the Chick Perkins Frank King show company. Since then he has been connected with various troupes in various parts of the country. He had been playing in a troupe working out of Madison just prior to his death. (Vindicator and Republican, Estherville, IA, March 11, 1941)
