Another free spirit has gotten her wings. Nancy Elaine Collinson flew home Jan. 31, after a courageous battle with cancer. She is joined in Heaven by her beloved husband David; mother Virginia; and a host of other loved ones and pets. Nancy was born in Wadsworth Jan. 31, 1955 to Marvin and Virginia Frase. She is survived by her father Marvin of Wooster; sister Mary Anne (Claude) Crabtree of Orrville; brother Richard (Heather) Frase of Massillon; nephews Greg (Cristina) Crabtree of Austin, Texas and Kevin (Jackie) Crabtree of Charlottesville, Virginia; great-nephews and niece, Thomas, George, Patrick, Wilson and Giulia Crabtree. She is also survived by her in-laws Marvin and Ellen Collinson of Mogadore; and other brother and sisters-in-law. Nancy marched to the beat of a different drum. She loved her cats, growing her own food and flowers, cooking, baking and hanging on the porch with a good book. Nancy asks that you be kind to one another and pay it forward when you can. Per her wishes, cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life will take place when the weather warms up. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Humane Society of Summit County.
