Bettie Collins

Bettie Bailes Collins of Louisville passed away February 12th, 2024, returning to her Heavenly Father. She was born in Clarkson, Kentucky on January 7th, 1945.  She graduated from Spalding University with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and worked as a registered nurse for over forty years, retiring from Home of the Innocence in Louisville, KY. She loved spending time volunteering, being one with nature, and continuing to grow her faith with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Her parents, James and Marie Jeffries Bailes, and brother, Rodger Dale Bailes, preceded her in death.  She is survived by her son, Derek (Michele) Collins, two grandchildren, Devyn and Rylan Collins, her sister, Sue Bailes Waugh, and two nieces, Tracy Waugh and Kimberly (Eddie) Hobson.
