Obituary for \r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t Kinsey Collier\n\r\n\t\t\t\tKinsey was born in Washington to Jim and Robyn Collier, and was the youngest of three girls. \n\nAs a child she was extremely active, always upbeat and happy. Her nickname due to her tendency to be accident-prone was “Lumpy”. If she wasn’t falling down the stairs she was tripping over her own feet. Her mother gave all of her daughter’s nicknames ending in “seed”. Taska was “Pumpkin Seed”, Renlee was “Chirpseed”, and Kinsey was “Pappleseed”. \n\nIn her teens she moved with her mother to Utah, and completed her Associates Degree, all the while experimenting with several career options, including server, project assistant, and mechanics. She eventually found a job as a sales rep for a travel agency, which she loved and excelled at. \n\nKinsey loved giraffes, playing guitar, singing and tending to her numerous plants; quite the “green thumb”. She loved photography and had a real knack for taking beautiful artistic pictures. As a “Foodie” she loved anything home cooked. \n\nOne of her greatest joys in life was her sweet dog Sadie, whom she saved from an unfortunate situation, and doted on endlessly. She also adored her three nieces and nephews and spent countless hours enriching their lives.\n\nKinsey battled with the light and darkness of this world, and these struggles were reflected in her numerous journal entries and hauntingly beautiful poetry. \n\nKinsey was an extraordinary person. She touched many with her humor, creativity, and crazy antics. Her emotional struggles ended her life prematurely. She was a remarkable daughter, sister, aunt and friend. \n\nKinsey will be greatly missed!
