Wells, Edna D.

Edna D. Wells passed away peacefully June 12, 2015 at the age of 99.

Beloved wife of the late Alan S. Wells (1915-2004); devoted mother to Susan Little, Peter A. Wells and wife Sandra, Andrew S. Wells and wife Karen, and Karen (Betsy) Wells Queiroz and husband Martinho (deceased). Loving grandmother of eight and great-grandmother of many more, she will be remembered for her sparkling personality, seemingly boundless energy, and her ability to find new friends of all generations almost everywhere she went.

Preceded in death by her four brothers and sisters, she lived just short of a hundred years. When asked about the secret of her longevity, she would reply:

"Simple - just never miss a Birthday"

Born in Jersey City, NJ, in 1915 to Clarence and Stella Dingman, she was a 1933 graduate of Bound Brook High School, where she met Alan, the love of her life. They married in 1938 and raised their children in Cranford, NJ, before moving to NM in 1971. Her abiding love of family, friends, travel, gardening and reading kept her happily occupied throughout her golden years.

Interment will be at Lake Nelson Memorial Park, Piscataway, NJ, alongside Alan and close to her parents.
