April 7, 1933 — March 24, 2019


Laura Couch Collett age 85 of McKee, KY passed away on Sunday, March 24, 2019 at the Jackson Manor Nursing Home in Annville, KY. Laura was born on April 7, 1933 in Brownsfork, Ky to Arville and Audrey Bowling Couch. Laura married her beloved husband, Stanley on June 7, 1951 in East Bernstadt, KY. Together they had one son, Stanley Collett, Jr. Laura was preceded in death by her husband, Stanley, whom she missed every single day since his passing a little over three years ago. She was also preceded by her parents. Laura is survived by her son, Stan and his wife, Kaye along with the following: Grandchildren, Jamie and his wife Kimberley and their daughters, Makale, Macey, as well Laura’s newest great great granddaughter, Callie Grace, Chastity Hartwell and her husband, Cary and their children: Justin, Taylor, Bryson, Bryon Gay, Veronica Venable and her husband, Scott and their children, Brennon and Sydney and her daughter, Reign.

She was preceded by the following brothers and sister, Maudie Woods, Wanda Feltner Campbell, Ray Lee Couch, Johnny Couch, Lester Couch, Lester “Fat Daddy” Couch, Arville Jr. Couch, and Lonzie Couch. Laura also leaves behind a host of other treasured relatives and friends that loved her dearly. Laura spent over the last 40 years living in Jackson County, KY but spent many years in Fort Wayne, IN as well. Laura loved her family and cherished spending every moment she could with them. She loved watching her great grandchildren grow and was there for them in every way she could be. While living in Fort Wayne, Laura worked many years as a LPN at the state hospital in Indiana. After moving to Jackson County, Laura and Stanley owned and operated Collett’s Grocery at New Zion where she met many lifelong friends. Laura never met a stranger and was known to nearly everyone in McKee, most often as Mamaw. She remembered everyone’s names and their stories. She was a compassionate person that would give everything she had to see others have what they needed and wanted. She was truly one of a kind. Laura was a member of the New Zion Baptist Church but also loved attending church at Warfork Holiness church with her grandchildren. Our loss is truly Heavens gain, but we know beyond a doubt we will see her again in Heaven and that she and Stanley have been reunited with the Lord.
