Mrs. Bond began volunteering in the early 1950s and remained active well into the 1990s.

"She had a real dedication to her numerous charities that went way beyond just sitting on a board or a committee," said Clarisse A. Mechanic, a patron of the arts in Baltimore. "She was a worker and Baltimore benefited by her hard work."

She was patron chairman of the English Speaking Union's annual benefit for educational programs.

She had been president of the Women's Auxiliary Board of Rosewood School and the Maryland Association of Hospital Auxiliaries. She also served on the council of the Women's Auxiliary of Maryland State Mental Hospitals and was a member of the board of directors of the old Eudowood Sanitorium.

She was born Ellen Wilson in Baltimore and, in 1920, graduated from the Baltimore Teachers' Training School. She taught in city schools until 1938, when she and Arthur Peabody Bond were married.

Mr. Bond, the owner and founder of the A. P. Bond Paper Co., died in 1979.

Mrs. Bond was a longtime communicant of the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, 5603 N. Charles St., Baltimore, where a memorial service is planned for 10: 30 a.m. Wednesday.

She is survived by a grandson, Arthur Bond Tayman of Davidsonville; a granddaughter, Beatrice Willetta Zaffaroni of Davidsonville; two great-grandchildren; and a great-great-granddaughter. Carl Fleming, a Baltimore native and a courier for Allied Signal Co., was fatally injured Wednesday in an automobile accident in the city. The West Baltimore resident was 26.

Mr. Fleming graduated from Mark of Excellence Christian Academy on Hilton Street in 1989 and began working at Allied Signal in 1990. Mr. Fleming, who was called "Big Daddy," enjoyed video games and sports.

Services are scheduled for 11: 30 a.m. Tuesday at Word Alive Worship Center, 125 N. Hilton St.

He is survived by his wife of 10 months, the former Sunseeahray Quarles; a son, Carl Fleming Jr.; his parents, Tyrone Fleming and Charlotte Fleming; and a brother, Troy Fleming. All are of Baltimore.
