Thearsa Lynn Collier


Thearsa Lynn Collier, 48, was born on February 3, 1971 in Fairbanks Alaska to the late Jesse Eugene Collier Sr. and Lue Vater Collier (Haley).

Thearsa Collier is survived by her four brothers, Jesse E. Collier Jr., Darrel W. Collier, Kenneth E. Collier Sr., and Keith E. Collier and a host of relatives and friends.
