Brenda G Collins RN

Brenda G Collins, of Sedalia, Missouri, died Monday, January 8, 2024 at E.W. Thompson Health and Rehab Center. Brenda was born July 26, 1951 to Betty McElroy Yadon and Lee Seiver in Salem, Illinois. On September 29, 1984 in Sedan, Kansas she married the late Alex T Collins. 

Brenda grew up a portion of her life in both Indiana and Illinois. She graduated in 1969 from Calumet High School in Gary, Indiana. After working in restaurants Brenda set goals of becoming a registered nurse. While working as a nurse’s aide, she attended St. John's College for nursing, and graduated with her degree in nursing. Brenda had a servant’s heart, as well as a born leader. Brenda worked at hospitals in Kansas, California, Indiana, and Missouri as a floor manager, charge nurse, house nurse and shift manager, retiring nine years ago from Bothwell Regional Health Center in Sedalia, Missouri.  One of Brenda's greatest joys was to see young people she helped train become caregivers.
