Peggy B. Collins, 90 years old, a resident of The Villages of Orleans in Albion, NY died on July 2, 2020.
Peggy was born in Norristown, PA to Louis F. & Gladys A. Biehl on May 26, 1930.
She is survived by her daughter Susan Collins Thaine, her favorite (and only) son-in law, Michael J. Thaine; her beloved grandchildren Abigail (Connor Hess) and Kyle Thaine (Shannon Broda); brother Clark (Nancy) Biehl; special family members, Chuck and Peggy Biehl (Joshua & Jared); and nieces and nephews. Peggy is pre-deceased by her parents; her husband Robert J. Collins; a brother L. Charles Biehl; a brother Paul Biehl; sisters-in-law, Francis M. Biehl and T. Christine Biehl; a nephew James Biehl.
Peggy, a devoted Buffalo Bills fan, was a superior organizer and a detail-oriented person who always knew where every item was located in her home; a skill she did not pass on to her daughter. Peggy was a Literacy Volunteer, a youth group leader, and a Sunday school teacher. She was especially devoted to assisting her husband (Volunteer Chaplain) at the Orleans County Nursing Home/Villages of Orleans for almost 30 years. Peggy always sent cards to the nursing home residents for birthdays and holidays because she did not want anyone to feel forgotten.
