BETHANY COLLINS - CEMETERY MANAGER
My name is Bethany Collins and I was adopted at birth by Dan and Teddie Faye Raines. A year later was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes. I grew up in Russellville where I have gone to church at First Baptist Church since an infant. At age 17 I accepted Jesus as my personal Savior and was baptized Later I participate in the youth and adult choir.
I graduated from Russellville High School in 2001. Right out of high school I married my husband, Rodney Collins, and then went on to College at Arkansas Tech University where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Administration with an emphasis in accounting and marketing.
I gave birth to a little girl with a cleft lip and palate who has had numerous surgeries. I was then told I was going to have twin boys. The boys were born and one has since been diagnosed with Autism.
I previously worked at Rest Haven Memorial Park where I gained my experience as a Cemetery Manager and serving families at their greatest time of need. I continue to serve God in serving families with my new opportunity with Humphrey Funeral Services and Center Valley Memorial Gardens.
