Alma Louise Wells

Alma retired from White-Westinghouse. She enjoyed the simple things in life, such as sitting on the back porch, taking care of her flowers, and playing bingo. She was an amazing cook and a fabulous baker with her specialty being cookies. She always had something delicious to share when you would visit.

Alma's family was very precious to her, and she was happiest when her family was surrounding her. She adored her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren and spoiled them with much love and attention. As the family matriarch, Alma's desire was for her family to stay together and love one another.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, John L. Wells; her sisters, Garnet Callahan, Alberta Littleton, Eunice Hill, and Jeanie Akers; and her brothers, Charles and Elwood Reynolds.
