Collard and his wife Karen of Oronogo, Randolph collard of Oronogo, and David E. Collard and his wife Nancy of Webb City, MO.  Six grandchildren, Clay Collard, Douglas Collard, Marcy Neager, Matthew Collard, Justin Collard, and Adam Collard and 20 great grandchildren.  She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews and her good friend Merilene Irwin.  A visitation will be Tuesday, January 2, 2018 from 10:00 AM until service time at the First Baptist Church of Oronogo.  Funeral services will start at 11:00 AM with Pastor Darin Youngberg officiating.  Interment will be at the Tracy Cemetery, East of Anderson, MO.  Memorial contributions may be made to the First Baptist Church of Oronogo.  Pallbearers will be her grandsons Clay Collard, Douglas Collard, Matthew Collard, Justin Collard, Adam Collard, Brian Neager, Wyatt Collard, Houston Collard, Bronson Collard and Pastor Darin Youngberg.  Services are under the direction of Simpson Funeral Home in Webb City.  Visit www.simpsonfh.com for online condolences.
