Angeline Collison, 98 of Kalamazoo, passed away peacefully Sunday night, January 8, 2023, at Park Village Pines. Angie was born in June, 1924, in Kalamazoo, MI to John and Ann (Berghuis) Osterman and was a lifelong resident of the area. She graduated from Kalamazoo Christian High School in 1941 as part of the first graduating senior class. In July, 1944, she was married to Kenneth Collison who preceded her in death in November, 2004. Angie and Ken raised four boys, David, Donald, Dale, and Dennis. She appreciated colorful things in life and had a soft spot for her pets and an occasional stray needing a home. Angie was known for her love of music, playing the piano, organ, accordion, and marimba. She gave piano and organ lessons to many area youngsters and played piano accompaniment for Bill Hunt’s “Hymns That Live” program on WKZO radio in the 1940’s and 50’s. She received special compliments for accompanying Dave Boyer, a converted Las Vegas entertainer, when he visited Kalamazoo. She was a charter member of Hope Reformed Church and served for many years as organist and pianist there and later at Bethel Reformed Church. When her sons were grown, she worked for 19 years at the Kalamazoo branch of the US Postal Service. Angie loved her God, Lord, and Savior and was ready for her heavenly reunion. She was preceded in death by her husband, Kenneth, and son, K. Dale. Angie is survived by her sons David (Penny); Donald (Pat); Dennis (Shauna); daughter-in-law Jan; 13 grandchildren; 43 great-grandchildren; and 6 great-great-grandchildren.
