Amy Lee Collins passed away Wednesday, November 1, 2017, in Dallas, TX. Family will gather to celebrate her life of 91 years on Saturday, November 11, 2017, with a graveside service at Resthaven Memorial Park. A tribute of Amy’s life may be found at, where you may leave memories and expressions of sympathy for the family.
Born in 1926, in Wichita Falls, TX, to Nina Dees Hayslip and Richard Dalton Hayslip, Amy spent her childhood in Hockley County. She married Myles Lyndon Collins on June 13, 1943. Amy was a devoted mother to their three children. In 1962, the family moved to Lubbock.
Amy was well-known for her sales abilities. She began a career in real estate that spanned several decades at J. W. Chapman & Sons. Amy was devoted to the integrity of the real estate profession, and served in numerous positions on the Lubbock Board of Realtors. In 1981, Amy partnered with Ron McClendon and Martha Farmer York to form Legacy Realtors which ultimately merged to become WestMark Realtors.
Amy also loved selling automobiles at Pioneer Lincoln Mercury, and she finished her career at McDougal Properties.
Beginning in 1963, Amy joined and faithfully attended the First Baptist Church in Lubbock until she moved to Dallas in 2007. Her Bible knowledge and love for the Lord grew exponentially under the teaching of Mrs. W. H. Trice, impacting generations to come.
Survivors include her daughter, Dana Neugebauer and husband, Randy; son, Myles Lyndon Collins II; grandchildren: Michelle Spence and husband, Chad; Allison Davis and husband, Scott; Joshua Songer; Toby Neugebauer and wife, Melissa; Todd Neugebauer and wife, Sara; and Tyler Collins. She is also survived by 7 great-grandchildren, her sister, Dorothy White, and a number of nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Myles Lyndon; daughter, Diane Songer; son-in-law, Marion Songer; and sister, Jamesie Coffman.


The family suggests that memorials to honor Amy be made to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Southwest or Texas Boys Ranch.

    It has been so long that I wondered what I could say to your family, but today I drove to NM, and realized that every time without fail, as I passed through Ropesville, I always thought of the Collins family. Diane was my best friend in high school, and on many weekends, Amy would throw our little group of 16-year-olds in the basement when you moved “into town”-Lubbock. We would sneak (we thought) upstairs for snacks and giggle all night. I wore Diane’s many Western outfits for Westerner Day at LHS, and thought your home was a haven for no worries beyond boyfriends, and a fun place to be. Thoughtless as teenagers are, it didn’t enter my mind that Amy created that atmosphere. I only saw her now and again, Lubbock being that big small town it is, but she made a memory for me. (Apologies to Lyndon for always kicking him out!) I am so sorry for the loss you must feel now, but knowing others thought your Mom was special I hope helps.

    Amy Lee Collins, at last you are free and at home with your Lord, in the place that was prepared for you. You will undoubtedly add a new brilliance to your Heavenly Home. The James and Alta Gardner family and Myles and Amy Collins family worshipped and had great gatherings along with all the Collins clan at First Baptist Church, Ropesville, Texas, back in the ’40s and ’50s.
    To Amy Lee’s Family: Knowing her love for children, especially in their special needs and illnesses, it is so much like her to have hoped for support of Ronald McDonald House Charities.
    We at Holland Gardens Christmas Store in Lubbock are donating and installing Christmas lights and Christmas Wreaths to RMDH Charities of the Southwest this year as a tribute to Amy Lee Collins and the loving memories she shared with her family and beyond.
