Nancy Elizabeth Beaty Collins, age 78, peacefully transitioned on to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on May 12, 2020. She was born, November 14, 1941 in Mecklenburg County to the late, Chalmers Bernard Beaty and Virginia Dare Beaty.

Nancy dearly loved her family, her husband, her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Nancy was a woman of deep faith, loved her Lord Jesus Christ, reading and studying the Bible and attending Bible Study Fellowship. She loved camping at the beach, her rose garden and adored her kitties. She was Nana to her grandchildren, whom she took such joy in. She had a bright smile that lit up a room.

She was a native of Lowesville, NC until moving to Concord where she lived for 56 years. Nancy worked for George Griffith Architects for 13 years then started her own commercial interiors business, Collins Contract Interiors. She loved working with Fifth Third Bank, where she decorated and furnished branches in NC, SC and Georgia. She was a dedicated member of First Baptist Church of Concord.

Nancy leaves behind her adoring husband, Steven A. Collins; her two daughters, Natalie Dare Burleson of Mt. Pleasant and Kathy Jean Stowe of Chicago; her step children, Rusty Collins and Melissa Collins Plummer and their spouses; her sister, Anna & husband, HL Lineberger; her beautiful and loving ten grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

The praise of her Lord and Savior were always on her lips. Nancy had a way of continually encouraging those around her through scriptures and prayers. One her favorite passages was 2nd Corinthians 12:9, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”

Nancy passionately loved this life and worked diligently to share the BEAUTY she saw in the world. Whether it was a trip to her favorite beach, a walk with her daughters and grandchildren through flower gardens, or petting her playful kittens, she exemplified a woman who saw the colors of life the brightest.

Nancy prayed and spoke Psalms 91 over her family every day of her life and it is only appropriate we pray it today, “He gives His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. In their hands they will bear you up lest you dash your foot against the stone.”

A graveside service for Nancy will be Friday, May 15, 2020, 1:00 pm, at Oakwood Cemetery, 471 Church St., N, Concord, officiated by Rev. Jim Collier.

Cabarrus Funeral, Cremation & Cemetery is serving the Collins family.

Such a sweet lady, I was her mail lady for 5 or 6 years. A lot of days, I was tired when I got to her house ( even through her house was early in the route) but I could always count on her to meet me with her sweet smile and many were the days she brighten my day. My sympathies to all of her lovely family. She will be missed by all but not forgotten.
