Orrville — Connie L. Collins, age 84, of Orrville, passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 12, 2022, at Accord Care Community in Orrville, after a period of declining health.
Connie was born in Holmes County, Ohio, on July 8th, 1937. She was the only child of Darwin and Rachel Fawn Davenport.
She graduated from Wooster High School in the class of 1955. She was a member of Orrville Christian Church. She worked in the offices of Smith Dairy, retiring after 23 years.
One of her favorite pastimes was working in her yard of the family home, where she remained for close to 60 years. She was a huge Cleveland sports fan and could tell you all about each of the teams. She was always proud to mention her family has remained in the Orrville area.
She is survived by three children; Jeff Collins, Joni (David) Corbett and Julie (Jeff) Chizmadia all of Orrville; 4 grandchildren, Brandon Collins, Rachel Chizmadia, Matt Corbett, and Lauren Sears; and 2 great-grandchildren, Brody and Nash Corbett.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by Charles Collins and Richard Hendrickson; daughter, Judy McCreery; daughter-in-law, Renee Collins; and grandson, Nicholas Corbett.
There will be no calling hours. Her wish was for a private family funeral at Crown Hill Cemetery in Orrville.
