Bonnie I. Collins, recreational activities coordinator at Bonnie Blink, the Maryland Masonic Home in Hunt Valley, died Nov. 12 of breast cancer at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Towson.

The Monkton resident was 59.

The former Bonnie Inman was born in Baltimore and raised in Ruxton. She was a 1970 graduate of Towson High School and attended Towson University.

Since 2006, Ms. Collins has worked as the recreational activities coordinator at Bonnie Blink. From 2003 to 2006, she was a horticulturist at Blue Mount Nurseries in Monkton.

Earlier in her career, she had been a secretary at the Park School and an information officer at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer.

Ms. Collins was an avid bird watcher and gardener. She also enjoyed knitting and baking.

"She was a firm believer in the Golden Rule and karma," said her daughter, Stella Margaret Collins of Baltimore. "Her sense of humor and kind, generous spirit will always be remembered by her family."

Plans for a memorial service were incomplete.

Also surviving are a son, Rex Henry Collins of Baltimore; a brother, Byron W. Inman of Baltimore; two sisters, Kathy D. Maxwell of Clarksburg and Lois I. Engle of Grass Valley, Calif.; and three nieces. At her death, she was separated from her husband, J. Courtney Collins of Baltimore.
