Elizabeth M. (Betty) Collins, age 81, of Moosic, passed away Saturday morning at home. Her beloved husband, George Collins, preceded her in death.
Born in West Pittston on March 30, 1937, and the daughter of the late Thomas and Elizabeth Fenton Leyshon, Betty was educated at the former Duryea High School. Formerly of Trainer, Pa., she was a member of St. John’s P.M. Church.

Her family wishes to acknowledge the entire staff of Traditional Home Health Hospice as well as Dr. Michael Jalowiec for their care, compassion and kindness.
Funeral services are scheduled for Friday, December 28th, at 11:00AM in the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge. Burial will follow at Memorial Shrine Cemetery, Carverton.
