Marion WELLS

WELLS Marion Irene Lillian 1922 – 2009 It is with "sadness" because we will miss her, but "joy" because she has gone "home" to be with her Lord, that we announce that Marion (Mom) passed away on Friday, March 13, 2009. She was the beloved mother of Barbara (Ted) Hensby, Laura King, Harold (JoAnn) Wells, and David (Kim) Wells; along with 11 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren. Marion is also survived by sisters, Barbara, Joyce, and Marjorie; along with brother Ken, as well as many nieces and nephews. At the age of 5, Marion, along with her parents, Bill and Agnes Yoxall and 2 sisters, emigrated from England and settled on a farm in Saskatchewan. She met and married Samuel Wells in 1940, farmed for several years then moved to Alberta. They retired and moved to Red Deer 26 years ago. Marion was predeceased by her parents; her husband Samuel; sisters, Minnie and Jackie; second husband Archie LaFournie; and son-in-law Michael King. Volunteering was a special part of Marion's life, along with involvement in CNIB and the Ladies of the Royal Purple. Her love for Jesus was very evident in everything that she did. The family desires to express our gratitude to all who made these last years of mom's life worth living. Thank you to the "caregivers" at the Redwood's Retirement Residence, the nurses and doctors in Emergency and on Unit 31 and on the Renal Dialysis Unit. Special accolades to Dr. R.M. Hulyk and Dr. Kym Jim. A Celebration of Mom's Life will be held at First Church of the Nazarene (2 McVicar St., Red Deer, AB) on Thursday, March 19, 2009 at 1:00 pm. Arrangements entrusted to Mountain View Funeral Home and Cemetery, Calgary, AB. Telephone 403-272-5555.
