Our beloved mother and grandmother, Carole Ann Binkley Collier, went home to be with her Heavenly Father on July 16, 2021. Visitation will be from 6:00pm to 8:00pm on Friday, July 23rd at Lake Ridge Chapel. The family will celebrate her life at 1:30pm on Saturday, July 24th at the Lakeridge Chapel and Memorial Designers. Burial will follow at Resthaven Cemetery in Lubbock.

On March 9, 1942, Carole Ann was born to Robert Leon and Anemone Love Binkley in Columbus, TX. Leon worked in the oil industry (seismograph) and moved as many as twelve times during Carole’s early childhood. The young family lived in Texas, Wyoming, Montana, and eventually settled in Lovington, New Mexico. Carole graduated Lovington High School in 1961 after which, she moved to Lubbock to attend Lubbock Christian College. She later transferred to Texas Tech University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Education. Carole married William Robert Collier in 1962 and had three sons, Steve, Greg, and Scott. Carole was a homemaker and embraced the work of raising her family. She was active with her three sons through many activities and adventures, planning multiple family vacations, and working with PTA. She later returned to Texas Tech and earned a master’s degree in psychology in 1988. Carole was civically minded and spent much of her time volunteering with local organizations and serving on community boards. For many years she was an active member of Lubbock Women’s Club, Junior League of Lubbock, and Lubbock Symphony Guild. She was also involved working with the Texas Tech Museum, Chamber of Commerce, Contact Lubbock, Lubbock Civic Center and ARCS (Achievement Rewards for College Scientists). She held leadership roles and made a lasting impact on each of the organizations she served. Carole enjoyed the arts, her bridge club, traveling, reading, spending time with her friends and family, and attending church activities. She loved the Lord and accepted Jesus as her Savior.

Those left to mourn her passing include her three sons and their families: Steve and Jan Collier of Frisco, TX; Greg Collier of Ft. Worth, TX; Scott and Melissa Collier of Lubbock, TX; five grandchildren, Cori Collier of Frisco, TX; Cole and Kaitlan Collier of Aubrey, TX; Campbell Collier and Will Collier of Lubbock, TX; Colt Collier of Ft. Worth, TX; two brothers Mike and Ila Binkley of Desoto, TX and Jim Binkley of Danbury, TX, and numerous nephews and nieces.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Leon and Anemone Binkley.
