Kelly Collin was a wonderful educator, mother and community member. She took them time to help my mom with her (too many )kids to get organized. She is wonderful kind and raised three vibrant, beautiful and talented children. She will be greatly missed. So much love from the Noth family.

Kelly was a very special friend and colleague. For me she was a role model as a loving mother who co-raised 3 strong, amazing daughters with her wonderful husband Tom, and a shining example of level headedness, dedication, consistency, stability, grace, generosity, stamina, and endless source of great recipes! scalloped potatoes, Texas sheet cake, broccoli salad...to name a few still in my short term memory and recipe box to this day. I can imagine her curled up in her blue living room chair with a book in her hands or at the kitchen table listening and offering wise feedback and humorous matter of fact conversation., or in her garden out back in the summertime growing many things, or snuggling Fitz's fur (way back). Any time I hear Janis Joplin sing I am reminded of Kelly. Not sure about how to follow up with the reading corps so I sent 11 library-bound children's books to the library at Seifert Elementary school in honor of her and many dedicated years teaching first grade there. Though for many years I could not see you Kelly you were always in my heart and you and your family will always have a special place there. Thank you all.
