Mrs. Collins Dies at Age of Seventy

Cedar Falls, Oct. 13--Mrs. Susan Collins, widow of Stephen Collins died about 2:30 yesterday afternoon at her home, 1309 Franklin street, age 70 years. Funeral services will be observed tomorrow morning at 9:30 o'clock at the home, conducted by Rev. J. W. Holland of the Methodist Episcopal church. Interment will be made in the cemetery in Grundy county, near her former home, by the side of her late husband. The Methodist pastor from New Hartford will officiate at the grave.

Mrs. Collins moved to this city 21 years ago from her farm, five miles from this city, and has endeared herself to all who have come to know her during these years. She was an active, industrious woman and faithfully attended to all duties. Saturday morning a neighbor chanced to go to the home and found Mrs. Collins lying on the floor suffering from a paralytic stroke, and this was followed by another later in the day, from which she never regained consciousness. She is survived by a daughter, Mrs. John Wilson, of Stout, who was summoned at once, and one son, E. W. Collins, of Whitefish, Mont., who is expected here at 4:20 this afternoon.

Funeral Services For Late Mrs. Collins Delayed Until Tomorrow Morning

The funeral services over the remains of Mrs. Susan Collins were postponed until tomorrow morning at 9:30 o'clock at the home, 1309 Franklin street, on account of the inability of her son reaching here from Montana in time for the services this morning as arranged. Burial will be made in Grundy county near the former family home. Mrs. Collins was in many ways a superior woman and she has left the stamp of her earnest endeavor upon all who fell under her influence. She was intellectual, religious and willing to sacrifice herself for the good of others. For years she had taught a large Sunday school class in East Cedar Falls and literally died in the harness as she was engaged in her regular household pursuits when stricken. Mrs. Robert Stirling is a sister of the deceased.
