Obituary:

Ruth Ann Collins, 62 of Mtn. View, AR passed away on Friday, December 12, 2014. She was born on February 18, 1952 in Dallas TX to Ike and Norma Herrington. She retired in February 2014 from the U.S. Forest Service after 11 years.
Ruth was an exceptionally selfless and loving person, the word “No” was not in her vocabulary. She always had a smile on her face and had a zest for life beyond measure. She was also a very giving person by nature. Ruth was involved in many activities benefiting the community such as the Musicians Annual Christmas Benefit for the local children among others. She was a life-time member of the VFW Ladies Auxiliary, AM Vets and the American Legion. Many nights you would find her playing music whether it was on the square or in a friend’s garage. She was happiest with her upright bass, Josephine, and a fishing pole.
She is survived by her daughter, Betty Heckel of Wimberley TX; her son David Tidwell of Grady AR; her mother, Norma Herrington of Mtn. View AR; her brother, Lee Herrington of Hardy AR; sister-in-law, Marla Herrington of Hardy AR; five grandchildren, one great grandchild; numerous nieces and nephews and many loving relatives and close friends.
Ruth was preceded in death by her husband, Melford R. Collins.
Funeral service will be held on Monday, December 15th, at 2:00 at the Roller-Coffman Funeral Home, Hwy 66 West, Mtn. View. AR. Brother Randy Long and Brother Steve Hentz will be conducting the services. Grave side services will follow at the Mtn. View Cemetery. Visitation will be Sunday, from 2:00-4:00 pm at Roller-Coffman Funeral home. Pallbearers are Lee Herrington, Kevin Heckel, Mike Herrington, Dakota Herrington, Bobby Halpain and Phil Dobbins. Honorary pallbearers are Skip Sapp, Carol Young, Sammy Lawrence and Danny Dixon.
