Patricia Karen Collins Bradley, 64, of Webster Springs, W.Va., formerly of Spotsylvania County, passed away peacefully on Monday, May 26, 2014, after a very courageous battle with cancer.

Born to Alton and Lucille Collins on June 8, 1949, in Webster Springs, W.Va., she resided in Virginia most of her life, enjoying fishing, spending time with her family and friends and loving her cats. While growing up, Karen was a majorette and won numerous beauty pageants, including Miss 16 of Webster County. Even at 64, she won Ms. Valentine Queen. She was always proud of being a coal miner's daughter.

Karen is survived by her daughters, Marcel Southern and husband Dana and Sandra Orris and husband Scott, all of Spotsylvania; sister Brenda Gregory of Cowen, W.Va.; stepdaughters Tammie Barbee and Heidi Bradley of Colonial Heights; stepsons Gene Bradley of Coral Springs, Fla., and Wilson Bradley of Spotsylvania; grandsons Eric and Joe Southern and Kyle Orris and granddaughter Kaitlyn Orris, all of Spotsylvania; 13 other grandchildren; and 10 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, the Rev. Eugene R. Bradley Sr.

A celebration of life will be held at 4 p.m. Sunday, June 8, at Wallers Baptist Church, 4001 Partlow Road, Partlow, with the Rev. Carl J. Barbee officiating.
