Nathania (Nae-Nae) Marie Collins

NIAGARA FALLS — Nathania (Nae-Nae) Marie Collins entered into eternal rest, suddenly, after a brief illness on     January 16, 2013. Nathania was a lifelong resident of Niagara Falls, where she attended local schools and enjoyed spending time with family, friends, and especially, her beloved daughter.

Collins; brother, Nathaniel M. Collins (Felicia); and grandmother, Marilyn Panosian. Predeceased by grandfather, George Panosian.
