Reba Ann Collins Dudding, 82 of Pembroke, VA departed this life entering the gates of Heaven on April 1, 2022 in the care of Giles Community Hospital. Born in Giles County on February 3, 1940, she was a daughter of the late James Ray and Annie Gertrude Myers Collins.

Reba found contentment in providing services for the residents in the Warm Hearth Community. Throughout her life, she enjoyed cooking for family and many others at Ron’s Stop and Shop and gardening. Early in life, she enjoyed playing softball. She practiced her faith in attendance at Lucas Memorial Christian Church and later at Pembroke First United Methodist Church. Perhaps, her greatest contentment however was found in following her grandchildren in their many sporting events.

She is preceded in death by her parents; husband Gene Ervin Dudding; sisters, Shirley Hutson, Kathlene Utt, and Wanda Price; and a daughter-in-law, Teresa Dudding.

Left to cherish her memory to their hearts are her sons; Michael Collins (Laura) of Pembroke; Billy Dudding (Sharon) of Pembroke, Greg Dudding of Pembroke, and Gary Dudding (Annissa) of Pembroke; a daughter, Sandra Gautier (Jerry) of Pembroke; grandchildren, Steven Sessor, Taylor Dudding, JD Dudding, Trevor Dudding, Tracey Dudding, Beth Gautier, and Kim Gautier; great grandchildren, Layla Sessor, and Caden Vest; a brother, Ray McKinley Collins (Joyce) of Pembroke; and sisters, Glenna DiRico (Tommy) of Pembroke, and Jackie Collins of Pembroke.
