Our sweet mother, Anna Peterson Wells, passed away on December 7, 2012 of causes related to age. She was the youngest of seven children. Mom was the last living of her generation in our family.
Born June 23, 1921 in Richfield Utah to Dan and Dosena Peterson. She met and married Larry M. Wells on March 5, 1945 in Richfield, Ut, later solemnized in the Manti LDS Temple. She was an active member of the LDS church having served in many positions probably the favorite being temple worker for 14 years at Jordan River Temple. She was a wonderful Mother to her 5 children, Grandmother of 17 and Grandma Great to 30. She loved to travel whether it be camping in the mountains, sitting by a lake watching Dad fish or flying off to some faraway place she had always dreamed of visiting. After Dad's death Mom had a wonderful group of women who was referred to as the "Golden Goers" and go they did. She loved family outings, Sunday dinners, a game of cards, car rides, snacks, bonfires in her back yard, and BYU sports.
She will be missed by many but especially her family, Merrilee (Paul) Ricks, Shelley, ID, Cliff (Kristi) Wells, Wanachee, WA, Sally (Joe) McKee, So.

We would like to thank her good friends, the staff at Legacy Retirement Center where she lived the past six years, her good friend, Gwen Reid, whom she always considered a sister and Copper Ridge Rehabilitation who was so good to us the past three weeks.
