Sister Alicia Collins, age 89, of Chilton, died on April 13, 2022, at Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice Care in Sheboygan Falls. She was born December 25, 1932, in Flandreau, South Dakota.

She also earned a Master’s Degree and served as principal in Carey, Illinois, Appleton, Green Bay, and CPES in Wisconsin, totaling more than 26 years.

Alicia was preceded in death by her parents, Clair and Florence Collins; brothers: Edward (Mary) Collins and James (Bonita) Collins; and a brother-in-law: Lon Amundson.

Sr Alicia was Principal at St Joseph in De Pere when I served on the School Board. She was a kind and caring Administrator. She was especially kind to our family when we experienced a miscarriage. She had our five children stay with her at the Parish convent and allowed us to spend several days at her new Lake Winnebago home as we grieved our loss. We will always remember her compassion and kindness.
