Faith Nicole Collins of Kingston Springs, TN passed away peacefully in her sleep on December 18th, 2022, at the age of 28. She was born to Thadd and Mia Collins of Kingston Springs on December 17th, 1994, and immediately stole her daddy’s heart. She spent as much time as possible in his garage helping him restore classic vehicles and learning about every aspect of auto restoration. They attended Cruise-ins, Swap Meets, Junkyards, and Car Shows. They purchased her first car, a 1991 Chevrolet Camaro, when she was 13 years old and spent the next few years slowly restoring “Mr. Maro.” Faith had a broad range of interest when it came to cars from Classics, to imports, to trucks, and so much more. Faith also thrived in the martial arts and finally convinced her mother to join her spending many years sparring together, loving every moment.
Faith hit the ground running and never slowed down. Her infectious personality lit every room and every heart of those who knew her. She was Queen Bee and her brothers simply adored her. She was a great influence on her brother, Shane, when it came to his music, and they had a blast attending live concerts together. Likewise, Faith introduced her younger brother, Taylor, to Pokémon and video games and shared a love of all things related to the Japanese culture.
Faith attended Harpeth High School in Kingston Springs where she thrived at art and theater. She bounced into the import scene and flipped that world upside down adding friendships and forever memories along the way. After working for her father at FST Restorations Faith quickly found her niche as a Parts Advisor at several Nashville dealerships before landing her dream job just a few weeks before she passed at Hyundai of Cool Springs. They adored Faith and she thrived with finally feeling appreciated for her hard work and expertise. She was the perfect match for her position and the perfect fit at the dealership.
The love of her life was her son, Tucker. Just like Faith, he stole everyone's hearts. She was enamored with his smile, his laugh, and his quick wit. He amazed her with his charm and intelligence. She shared her love of cars with him and made sure he spent time at car meets and in her daddy’s shop. She kept him busy with coloring books, play dough, and puzzles to reinforce his creative side. Most importantly he taught her she was worthy of unconditional love.
Faith leaves behind her sons, Tucker Stephens of Kingston Springs and Noah Peck of Brentwood; her parents, Thadd Collins III and Mia (Myrick) Collins of Kingston Springs; her grandparents, Jane (Donald) Foreman of Ashland City, Thadd Collins, Jr of Spartanburg SC, and Judi Myrick of Nashville; her brothers, Shane Collins and Taylor Collins of Kingston Springs; and many beloved aunts, uncles, and cousins in Tennessee and in Texas.
