Amy Sue Hill Collins, 30, of Morgantown, W.Va., a former resident of Oakvale, went to be with her Lord after a courageous battle with ovarian cancer on Tuesday, July 15, 2008, at a Pittsburgh, Pa., hospital surrounded by her family and close friends.

Born January 16, 1978, in Pearisburg, Va., she was the daughter of Jimmy T. Hill and Susan Cregger Hill, of Oakvale. Amy was preceded in death by her older brother, Jimmy T. Hill Jr.; her maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Sidney B. Cregger; her great-grandparents, Dennie T. Hill Sr. and Edna Hill; and her great-grandmother, Nellie Dunn.

In addition to her parents, she is survived by her husband, Andy Collins, of Morgantown; her stepson, Tyler Collins, of Pearisburg, Va.; her best friend and brother, Jason (J-Dogg) Hill, of Oakvale; paternal grandparents, the Rev. Dennie T. and Oma J. Hill, of Oakvale; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Paul and Cindy Powell, of Pearisburg; sister-in-law, Martie Miller and family, of Blacksburg, Va.; and by her granny, Betty Pillow. She will be sadly missed by a host of aunts, uncles, close friends and family. She will also be missed very much by her special friend and companion, “Daisy Mae,” her English Mastiff.

Amy was a 1996 graduate of Pikeview High School and a 2001 graduate of West Virginia University with a bachelor’s degree in computer science. Upon graduation, she was promoted to an I.T.
