Oct. 14, 1927 – April 7, 2016
Cremation has taken place and no formal services will be held for Ina L. Collingwood, 88, who died April 7 at the New Horizons Care Center in Lovell.
Ina was born Oct. 14, 1927, in Lovell, the daughter of W.E. and Anna R. Smith Brown. She graduated from Greybull High School in 1946 as the valedictorian of her class.
Ina had rheumatic fever as a child and missed a year of school; during that year she learned to sew, a skill she practiced her entire life. She made clothes, draperies, upholstery for furniture and all manner of quilts, afghans and dolls with crocheted ball gowns.
Ina married Lawrence E. “Wee” Collingwood March 21, 1948, in Red Lodge, Mont.
She worked at Williams Department Store, Wyoming Gas, and later, with her husband, owned Bootlegger Liquor.
Her parents, her husband Wee Collingwood, and her son, John L. Collingwood, preceded her in death.
She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Linda and Darrel Gossens of Ten Sleep; her son and daughter-in-law, Buzz and Gloria Collingwood of Greybull; five grandchildren, Kristen Marcus, Jennifer Collingwood, Kraig Gossens, Roger Lancaster and Amanda Sorenson, and 10 great-grandchildren
Ina’s ashes will be scattered on her son’s grave at the Shell Cemetery.
