Kathlyn Mary Collins (Brooks), 74, of Westbrook, peacefully entered into rest on Aug. 31. She was the widow of Martin W. Collins.

Kathlyn was a long-time resident of Clinton. She worked for the New Haven Rail Road for 23 years before enrolling in Quinnipiac College to get her RN degree, after which she worked at Branford Healthcare as a discharge planner. Marty and Kathy loved to be near the water, having a cottage on Cedar Island for many years, and then when retiring at 62 when they moved to Oak Island, North Carolina. She was known for her sense of humor, always able to make those around her laugh. Kathlyn loved her animals, especially her dog Lola. She also loved reading, needle point, shopping, the Casino (when she won!), and going out to lunch with her many friends and family. Above all, she was a devoted wife to Marty.

Kathlyn is predeceased her son Gary Eugene and her granddaughter Jodie Catherine Mittica. She will be greatly missed by her brother Frank Brooks (wife Kathleen); daughter Jacqueline A. Mittica (husband James) of Clinton; her step-children Maria Ann Collins, Martin W. Collins, and John P. Collins; and her grandchildren James R. Mittica III (fiancé Taylor Gargano), Eugene Collins, Allison Collins, and J.P. Collins.

Services for Kathy will be held at a later date.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in Kathlyn’s honor to Connecticut Hospice at 100 Double Beach Rd., Branford, CT 06405.
