November 29, 1915 - November 18, 2011
Our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother, Rea Zell Collard Collard, age 95, passed away peacefully November 18, 2011 in Pleasant Grove, Utah at the home of her daughter Christine. Rea was born November 29, 1915 in Fountain Green, Utah, the oldest of eight children born to George Earl Collard and Rozella Jensen. The family later moved to Provo where Rea attended schools and graduated from BY High School. On October 24, 1934 she married the love of her life, Gordon Elmer Collard in Coleville, Utah. She was a skilled homemaker and together they raised their family in Provo. On April 10, 1946 they were sealed together as a family for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Rea was a devoted wife and mother, and a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Mother was a gracious woman; she loved her friends, neighbors, and her family, especially her loving husband of 57 years. She enjoyed her association with others, through her many Church callings. Mother loved to research and spent many hours doing genealogy. She will be missed. We are comforted to know she joins those that have gone on before and is in the arms of loved ones. She is preceded in death by her husband, parents and her brothers, Ellis and Claren and a sister Helen Boshard. Rea is survived by her five children: three sons Leland (Jeri) Collard, Provo, UT; George (Marylin) Collard, West Jordan, UT; Glade (Jan) Collard, Orem, UT; and two daughters, (Colleen (Overton deceased) Nabaum, So. Jordan, UT; Christine (Harvey) Hansgen, P1. Grove, UT; two brothers George Earl Collard, SLC, UT; Kenneth (Trilby) Collard Vancouver, WA; two sisters, Carol (Melvin deceased) Dixon SLC, UT; and Cathryn Veltre, Gold Canyon, AZ; along with thirty four grandchildren, forty-six great-grandchildren, eleven great-great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. The family wishes to thank Dr. Jones, Nurse Wendy Solum, Mary Moore and Cierra Hansen for the professional, kind and compassionate care they provided to our mother during her last days. In lieu of flowers the family requests we all do a good turn for others. Condolences may be sent through www.bergmortuary.com.
