Obituary

After a long, loving and beautiful life, Peggy Jean Collins passed away on Sunday, March 29, 2020.

Peggy was born in Fayetteville, N.C. on September 17, 1942 to Ralph and Addie (Hart) Brock. She is survived by her two children, their spouses, six grandchildren and a number of other loving relatives and friends.

Peggy graduated from Pine Forest High School and married her high school sweetheart upon his return from serving in Vietnam with the U.S. Air Force. They moved to Raleigh and Chapel Hill where she worked a number of jobs helping put him through school. Later they relocated to the Washington DC area where she lived for the next 20 years raising her two children and following her divorce, working in the apartment management field eventually advancing her way up to property manager of a large residential apartment community.

Following her father’s death, Peggy moved back to her hometown of Fayetteville to care for her mother until her death. The move back home allowed her to renew old friendships including her dearest friend, Dale Blackburn. Most recently she lived with her son and his family in Virginia Beach while receiving treatment for lung cancer. The support she received from her extended family, Karen Miller with the American Cancer Society, Helen Godwin of Five Points Health Care while in Fayetteville, and the staff at the Chesapeake Office of Riverside Cancer Specialists during this time meant the world to her.

Peggy’s greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren and watching them grow. She often commented the happiest days of her life were spent with her grandchildren over spring breaks, summers, and Christmas holidays. She is survived by her son, William Collins, Jr. of Virginia Beach, VA; daughter, Lorie (Collins) Dubasky of Fairfax, VA; as well as her six grandchildren: Ryan Collins, Sean Collins, Emily Collins, Kyle Collins, Alexander Dubasky and Raighney Padilla. She was pre-deceased by her father, Ralph Brock, her mother, Addie Brock, and brother, Leonard Brock.

Peggy’s final wish that her ashes be scattered on the beach by all her grandchildren will be honored in a private family ceremony.

Mom,

Today was the first Mother's Day without you and it's been a hard day. We spent the last year focused on treating your cancer, a relentless schedule of doctors appointments, scans, chemo but we never spent time really talking about your life, your hopes, your dreams. I remember watching you sit in a chair in the back yard looking up in the sky and all I think was you must have been thinking it all went by so fast, but I never talked to you about it. We both thought that would come after all the treatments, we always think there will be more time until there isn't. I could tell everyone your oxygen saturation levels, blood pressure, medicine schedule, lab results, scan results and cancer progression but not your favorite color or song (I did know Kevin Hart is your favorite actor, everyone knew that). I asked you to hang on so we could go back to Fayetteville together one last time to say goodbye. The Corona Virus made us push that back and it never happened. Your treatments were difficult and I felt we were pushing in two different directions. But rather than fighting you about it, I wished I'd enjoyed the time we had rather than trying to make more time. What I will always regret is not telling you how much you would be missed and remembered. That I would think about you everyday. And your grandchildren, the pride of your life, will all carry some part of you through their lives. But it's too late for that. I will work to try and not make the same mistake with others in my life and that will be the lesson I carry from our last year together.

I love you.

Happy Mother's Day
RC

Always eager to hear about your day. Always there when you needed her. My grandma Peggy was one of the kindest and strongest people I've ever known and no matter how hard things were, she never let it get her down. I’ll always remember those summers spent in Fayetteville growing up and to this day, I still can’t pass up a good flea market. I love you and I miss you, Grandma. We all do.
