BERNE – Alice Jean Collins, 80, passed away peacefully on Sunday July 22, 2018 at the Community Hospice Inn at St. Peter's Hospital. She was born on August 24, 1937 in Odessa, NY to the late Lester and Anna Woodford Fowler. After graduating from Odessa High School, she attended Binghamton City School for Nursing. She worked as a nurse at Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse and then moved to Albany shortly after marrying Leslie G. Collins. She worked at the VA Medical Center and then became a homemaker when their son was born. She became a preschool teacher at Stepping Stones Preschool, where she worked for 16 years. Jean was very active in the First Baptist Church of Westerlo; having been involved in the Sunday school, the choir, VBS, and the youth programs. She was an avid gardener and baked fantastic pies. She enjoyed taking care of her family and the people who she met that became her family.

Jean is survived by her beloved husband, Leslie G. Collins; her son, Michael (Kimberly) Collins; her grandchildren, Savannah, Jackson, and Asa Collins; and her numerous cousins.
