SCIO - Wrexie F. Ames went to be with the Lord on Friday, Sept. 4, 2020 after a brief illness.

Born June 20, 1941 to her parents Warren H. and Ruth C. Balcom in West Almond, on June 20, 1957 she was wed to her husband of 63 years, Arthur J. Ames, who survives. Wrexie was a devout wife and mother to her children. She had been employed at many area businesses and was a former member of the Scio Town Board.

Surviving along with her husband Arthur (Jim) Ames are two children, Betty (Tom) Harington of Avon, NY and James (Leona) Ames of Scio, NY; and two sisters, Ellen Snalnfield of Texas and Arlene Salisbury of West Seneca, NY.

She was predeceased by a granddaughter, Courtney Moore.

Wrexie was an avid supporter of the SPCA Serving Allegany County.

There will be no services or calling hours.

A private memorial service will be held at a later date at the convenience of the family.

In keeping with Wrexie's wishes, memorials should be made to the SPCA Serving Allegany County.

Very sorry for the families loss. I remember Wrexie most as a retail customer, but she was also a neighbor. I believe I can speak as well, for Karen when I say she as also a friend. Be at peace!

There are some people you meet in life that remain with you always. My time spent on Knights Creek Road in Scio developed many long-standing relationships that I have treasured my entire life. I spent many a days playing with Betty and Jimmy as Ms. Wrexie’s and Mr. Jim’s house. I was so tickled to reconnect with her and Jimmy on Facebook. We communicated frequently. I will miss that communication, which connected me so much to my past, a happy place that I will forever embrace. Jim, Jimmy, and Betty, my dearest sympathy to you all. Please know I will be keeping you close in my thoughts and prayers. May God wrap his loving arms around you all and comfort you during this time of loss.

So sorry to hear of her passing. I remember sitting at your house watching the 72 flood take a section of the road away. Sending all of you hugs to get thru this difficult time. Laura Taylor
