Glenda L. Riley, 64, urged loving beauty, living life

Just before Glenda L. Riley of Dayton died, she had these words for her family:

"Take the time to enjoy all the beauty of the world and all it has to offer," she wrote in a diary. "Look at the beauty of a rainbow after the storm, the songs from the birds and the sweet fragrance from the flowers.

"Life is great. Just love it and live it."

Mrs. Riley was a musician, writer and artist. But she said her greatest accomplishment was raising 11 children with her husband, John E. Riley Sr.

"I ask that my family hold on to the memories and to love each other," she wrote.

Mrs. Riley died Wednesday evening at the Highlands of Fort Thomas nursing home. She was 64 years old.

Mrs. Riley was a homemaker and a member of the Relief Society at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Lakeside Park.

She attended regularly until her health failed, but her faith never faltered.

"I don't believe in death," she wrote in her diary. I'm not going anywhere. It's just that this old body has become an awful place for my spirit to dwell."

Mrs. Riley played the violin and the piano. She enjoyed painting, drawing and creative writing. She penned poetry and short stories.

CSX manager James A. Collins, devoted family man, aided poor

Every day, James A. Collins collected donations for Erlanger-Elsmere United Ministries and went to local grocery stores for over-stocked food that could be given to the needy.

He was one of a small group of people who helped get the agency a new building in Erlanger. He also was actively involved with Erlanger United Methodist Church.

Mr. Collins, a devoted husband, father and community member, believed in putting others first, said a son, Stephen A. Collins of Cincinnati.

He died at 11 p.m. Saturday at St. Elizabeth Medical Center South in Edgewood. He was 75.

Born and raised in Huntington, W. Va., Mr. Collins did not settle in Northern Kentucky until 1979, when he moved to Erlanger after 37 years transfering from city to city as a worker for CSX Railroad.

He married Marjorie Collins in 1941 and had four children. He moved with his family all over the Midwest, including Huntington, Chicago, Richmond, Va., and other cities.

In 1959, he transferred to Alexandria, where he lived just a couple of years before moving to Grand Rapids, Mich., to become supervisor of the Western Region. Later, he moved back to Huntington, where he became General Manager of the Northern Division.

Finally, he moved to Erlanger, retiring as general manager, Northern Division.

Despite having to uproot his family about every four years for a new position, Mr. Collins was a devoted husband and father, his son said. In the short time that he lived in various cities, he contributed as much as he could: In Virginia, he founded and was the first president of the Selma, Va., volunteer fire department.

"As a father, he was very loving, compassionate and extremely generous," Stephen Collins said.

"He did things like take us Christmas caroling, take a whole group of kids swimming, and organized things like that."

Other survivors include his wife; daughters, Sue Ellen Halbeisen and Sharon Yung, both of Cincinnati, and Margie A. Bauer of Lakeside Park; eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

Services will be at 11 a.m. Thursday at Erlanger United Methodist Church. Visitation will be from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the church. Burial will be in Forest Lawn Cemetery, Erlanger. Memorials are suggested to Erlanger-Elsmere United Ministries, 525 Graves Ave, Erlanger, Ky. 41018; or Erlanger United Methodist Church, 31 Commonwealth Ave., Erlanger, Ky. 41018.
