August 1, 1955 — September 4, 2017

Yvonne Denise Collins 62, went home to her Lord and Savior on September 4th, 2017.She was born on August 1, 1955 to John and Mildred Oliveira.
She leaves behind her adored husband of 28 years Ronnie Ray Collins, of Lathrop; their children, Yolanda Gonzales (Jesse) of Manteca, Marcie Santinelli (David) of Lathrop, Ronnie Ray Collins Jr. of Lathrop and Cazondra Collins of San Pablo. Yvonne was blessed with 4 grandchildren Dylan, Devyn, Isabella, and the newest addition that will soon arrive and share a name with Grandma, little Yvonne, also known to Grandma as Lollie, and great grandson Damyn. In addition, Yvonne leaves siblings Elaine Tuttle and John Oliveira Jr.
Yvonne was a Lathrop resident, but was raised in Oakland and San Leandro. She was in sales management for many years, but would later fulfill her dream of being retired and spending more cherishing moments with her family. Yvonne was a true nurturer. She enjoyed taking care of her family and was her happiest when they all came together for parties or simply for great conversations. Yvonne looked immaculate wherever she went and loved to shop, but not for herself as much as for her kids and grandbabies. She radiated confidence and grace as it was felt by all. The zest that she had for life was like no other, making every moment an unforgettable event. Alongside her husband Ronnie, Yvonne was full of love and devotion.
She will be remembered as a loving wife, amazing mother, wonderful grandmother and beloved great grandmother. She will truly be missed. P.L. Fry is honored to serve the Collins family. A Rosary/Vigil will be held on Thursday, September 14,2017 7 p.m at P.L. Fry and Son Funeral Home, 290 North Union Rd, Manteca. Mass will be held on Friday, September 15,2017 at 11:00am at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, 505 E. North Street,  Manteca. She will be laid to rest privately at Lone Tree Cemetery in Hayward at a later day. For condolences to the family, please visit our website at
