BARBERTON---Another free spirit has gotten her wings. Nancy Elaine Collinson flew home on January 31, 2020 after a courageous battle with cancer. She is joined in Heaven by her beloved husband David; mother Virginia; and a host of other loved ones and pets.
Nancy was born in Wadsworth on January 31, 1955 to Marvin and Virginia Frase. She is survived by her father Marvin of Wooster; sister Mary Anne (Claude) Crabtree of Orrville; brother Richard (Heather) Frase of Massillon; nephews Greg (Cristina) Crabtree of Austin, TX and Kevin (Jackie) Crabtree of Charlottesville, VA; great nephews and niece, Thomas, George, Patrick, Wilson & Giulia Crabtree. She is also survived by her in-laws Marvin and Ellen Collinson of Mogadore; and other brother and sisters-in-law.
Nancy marched to the beat of a different drum. She loved her cats, growing her own food and flowers, cooking, baking and hanging on the porch with a good book.
Nancy asks that you be kind to one another and pay it forward when you can.
Per her wishes, cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life will take place when the weather warms up. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Humane Society of Summit County. To share a memory or send a condolence, please visit www.silva-hostetler.com (330-825-8700)
