MITCHELL – Rebecca Ann Collins Osborne, passed away Wednesday, July 31, 2019, at Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.

Born February 8, 1971, in Lawrence County, she was the daughter of Harrison and Pamela (Connell) Collins.

Rebecca was a hair stylist for 38 years and started arranging flowers 32 years ago at the age of 16.  She turned into one of the best florists in town.  Rebecca worked at the Mitchell Post Office for several years until she was injured in an accident. She then returned to being a hair stylist and florist, and even worked at Flower Cottage when they needed help.

She was talented in most everything.  She made greeting cards, loved to draw, made beautiful floral arrangements, and was an excellent hair stylist.  Rebecca also loved to travel.  She had been to California, the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, New York City, Mexico, and Florida.  She loved clothes, shoes, and especially her purses and jewelry.  Rebecca loved her family, and Mackenzie always came first; the rest of the family a little behind.  She was always ready to help anyone in need.

    I was so shocked and saddened to hear about Becca. I have fond memories of the Red Door Pizza softball team and how excited all the girls were to win the tourney on a hot July 4th. My prayers are with the family

    So many memories. Such a sweet girl. When she started at the post office she would call me at home after work. “I don’t know if I can do this!” With encouragement tears and laughter she became one of the best carriers we had. Always smiling.

    My Dearest Bestie ~ I can't believe that God has taken you away, but He knows best. We have had many, many wonderful times together and, of course, a lot of shopping going on. We have known each other every since we were little. I will always cherish our memories that we have had and always honor our friendship that very few people get to have. As to my second family, words can't express how sorry I am for this horrible loss. I love you all so very much. May God watch over and take care of you all.
