Ethel Collins

Sunday May 23, 2021

Ethel Collins passed away May 23, 2021 at the age of 68.  She was born March 4, 1953 to Ethel and Revious Harrington, both of whom precede her in death.  Her devoted husband Cleve Collins; her brother: Charles Bergeron; brothers-in-law: Joseph and Freddie Harrington; and sisters: Almeria Young and Julia Antoine also precede her in death.

Ethel leaves to cherish her memories two sons: Kenneth (Dorthea) Collins, and Jonathan (Fidiah) Collins; sixteen grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren; two brothers: Revious and Bubba Harrington; sister: Hazel Dukes; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends; and best friend and confidant Helena Serin (thanks for always being by her side).

Ethel was a devoted homemaker.  She was a community activist, with her goal being to make the streets of Gary safe for the kids to stay.  She did lots of volunteer work in her community, and she wanted to be remembered as a legend of Gary, IN.  She will most certainly be remembered as such by her family, whom she cherished and loved so much.  She will be dearly missed by all.  No services are being held at this time.
