Mrs. Anna Marie Collins
The death of Mrs. Anna Marie Collins, nee Drangmeister, a resident of North Court street in this city for the past 42 years, was announced last Thursday evening at 6 o'clock, her passing having occurred in the Methodist hospital in Gary, where she was taken four days previous for medical treatment and special care for an ailment of several years duration.
The deceased, the widow of Richard Collins since 1910, was 76 years old. She was a native of Pittsburg, PA, having been born in that city March 21, 1858. She was baptized, confirmed February 11, 1869 and received a Christian education in the Lutheran church prior to her marriage to Mr. Collins which took place in Tolleston, February 8, 1882. After a short residence in Hartsdale, the deceased, her husband and family moved to Crown Point where remaining ones have resided ever since.
Widowed for the past 25 years, the responsibility of rearing her family of three sons and four daughters was of great moment, and that she accomplished her purpose is attested by the splendid progeny left to perpetuate her name and the heritage of her admirable characteristics. A fourth son, Richard, died in 1905.
Surviving sons are Charles, Harry and John all of this city. The daughters are Mrs. Arthur Reiser of LaPorte and Mrs William Zurbriggen, Mrs. Charles Westphal and Mrs. Joseph Lauerman also of this city. Three sisters also survive, Mrs. Louise Lang of Hammond; Mrs. Dora Bremer of Iowa and Mrs. Minnie Shell of Wisconsin.
Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock in the Trinity Lutheran church, Rev. August Biester officiating. Burial was in Maplewood cemetery.

The death of Mrs. Anna Collins, at the age of 76 years, 10 months, and 23 days, occurred at the Methodist hospital in Gary on Thursday February 14th, 1935, after about a week of serious illness. She had been removed to the hospital from the home on North Court street on the Sunday preceding her death. The remains were removed to the undertaking parlors of her son-in-law, Arthur Reiser, at LaPorte, Ind., and were brought to Crown Point on Saturday, where the funeral service was held on Sunday afternoon at two o'clock at the Lutheran church with Rev. August Biester officiating. Internment was in Maplewood cemetery.
Anna Marie Drangmeister was born in Pittsburg, PA, on March 21, 1858. She came with her parents to Lake County when in youth. She was confirmed in the Lutheran faith on February 11, 1869. She was a faithful member of her church and of the Ladies' Aid Society.
She was united in marriage to Richard Collins on February 8, 1882. To this union were born eight children, four sons and four daughters. One son, Richard preceded her in death in 1905 and her husband in 1910. Surviving her are her sons, Charles, Harry and John, of this city, her daughters, Mrs. Charles Westphal, Mrs Joseph Lauerman, Mrs William Zurbriggen, of Crown Point, and Mrs Arthur Reiser, of LaPorte. Also three sisters, eighteen grandchildren and one great grandchild are left to mourn her loss as well as many other relatives and a host of friends.5
