It is with a heavy heart that Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri announces the passing of Jayme Collins, a member of the organization’s Board of Directors. She died December 22, 2017. She was 44.
Jayme was a powerful advocate for girl leadership development and shared a deep commitment to empowering girls and young women to reach their full potential. Jayme was most recently the Vice President of Executive Compensation for Emerson and previously head of Compensation and Benefits for Monsanto.
“Jayme will be truly missed as a valued board member of Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri. She embodied all the qualities of a true Girl Scout—leadership, strength, dedication and a passion for making the world a better place. Her kindness, generosity, spirit and commitment will never be forgotten,” said Bonnie Barczykowski, CEO of Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri.
A visitation was held December 29 at Hutchens-Stygar Funeral and Cremation Center. Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri extends its condolences to Jayme’s husband Roger, and the rest of the Collins family.
