January 23, 1946 - July 29, 2021
Connie Rhea Collier, born January 23, 1946, left this life on July 29, 2021, to join her heavenly family, who she missed dearly. Connie enjoyed card games, crafts and could be found at the sewing machine any time of the day or night. She worked proudly for the Delaware Tribal Gift Shop and made regalia for different dancers and her grandchildren. She loved cooking at the Pow Wow as well as at home for family get-togethers. She collected a variety of things, but her favorite thing to collect was turtles. Connie had a big heart and was always willing to share what she had to help someone else. She was loved by many and will be dearly missed. Connie married the love of her life, Don Collier, in February 1982. They had been married just shy of 25 years before Don passed away. Daisy and Connie had a dear friend, Danny, who helped take care of them, as well as helping care for their yard. He was a big help to each of them, as well as the kids knowing someone was there looking out for them. She is survived by two sons, Wes Coldren and Shelley of Dewey, and James Coldren and Shari of Cedar Vale, KS; her daughter, Christy Horton and Jimmy of Dewey; grandchildren, Amy McClead and Joe, JD Coldren, Hunter Coldren, Brody Gay and Audrey Horton; great-grandchildren, Iris and Amos Gay; two sisters, Debbie King and Mary Short; two brothers, Jerry Pointer and family, and Dick Pointer and family; brother-in-law, Mike Coyne; and numerous nieces and nephews. Connie was preceded in death by her husband, Don Collier; grandparents; mother, Daisy Pointer; father, JD King; stepfather, Raymond Pointer; brothers, James “Dubie” Calhoun; sister, Joyce Coyne; and stepbrothers, Terry Pointer and Charles Pointer. A memorial service will be held 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 14, 2021, at the New Hope Indian United Methodist Church in Dewey with the Rev. Michael Svitak officiating. Dinner will follow the service. Services are under the direction of Carter Davis and the Davis Family Funeral Home – Dewey Chapel. Online condolences and remembrances may be shared at www.DavisFamilyFuneralHome.com.
