Joanna Kissel Collins was born June 27, 1933 in New York City, New York. She was a Professor at Ohio State University. She came to Minden from Houston in 2010 and opened one of the first Antique and Resale shops that multiplied significantly since then. She was a wonderful business woman that never meet a stranger.
Her shop closed in 2015 after she suffered a bad fall, but not before many, many people came through her shop. She kept a visitor’s book and they were from all over the world. She truly loved Minden’s quaint little town and wanted to spend her last years here. Joanna Collins departed this earthly life on May 28, 2018.
