ENID, OK — Lynda Kincannon Collins passed peacefully Thursday, November 7, 2013, at the home of her daughter, Jennifer Beals, in Atlanta, Georgia, after a long battle with MS.

She was born April 28, 1947, in Enid, Oklahoma, to Dewey Ellis and Vera Alice Chalfant Kincannon.

She graduated from Enid High School in 1965 and attended college at Oklahoma State University, then transferred to Northwestern Oklahoma State University, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in primary education, specializing in mathematics.

Lynda married Bart Collins of Enid, Oklahoma, in 1969. She was an educator for five years. After taking classes at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia, she started her accounting career. After her early retirement due to MS, she and Bart moved to Holiday Island, Arkansas.

Lynda is survived by her husband, Bart; daughter, Jennifer and her husband Justin; and sisters, Sharon Parker of Enid and Cynthia Merrit of Fairview, Texas, and their families.

She was preceded in death by her parents; one sister, Marcia Ritter; and brother D. Ellis Kincannon Jr.
