I am sad to announce the sudden passing of my sister, Yolanda Rae Collins-Piper (7-Nov-1949 to 4-May-2015). Yolanda was struck by a massive heart attack around 3:00AM this morning at St. Rose Hospital in Hayward, California. She passed away quickly thereafter. Yolanda had been confined to a long-term nursing home for several years.

Yolanda is survived by her only son, Terrance (Terry) Jerome Blackman, myself (Deborah A. Collins-Nears) the only surviving sibling, and a host of cousins, nieces, nephews, and maternal Aunt Judy Harper of Jonesville, Louisiana.

Yolanda was preceded in death by her parents, Rafe Collins, Jr. and Alice Lee Monroe-Collins, her eldest sister Shirley Rose Collins Bigelow-Robinson, and dearest Uncle Willie and Aunt Josie Collins, all from Oakland, California (and Jonesville, Louisiana).

Yolanda was a former Nurse serving Alameda and Solano Counties for over 30 years,

Please join us in a home-coming prayer for Yolanda, and a prayer of love and support for her only child, Terrance (Terry) Jerome Blackman.
