Memorial Service, Funeral Mass, and Parking

We would like to invite our community to attend a memorial service and funeral to commemorate and honor Mayor, D. Michael Collins. Mayor Collins’ passing has touched the hearts and minds of so many of us who cherished his legacy here in Toledo. It is only fitting for us to have a special memorial and funeral that honors his life and invites all of our residents to come out and pay their respect.
