Addie Delores Tolliver-Bell, 89, of Ford City, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, Feb. 3, 2019, at 5:02 a.m. surrounded by her loving family. She was born at home June 27, 1929, in Ford City to the late Frank J. Tolliver Sr. and Sarah Catherine Bennett (Tolliver) Allensworth. Mrs. Bell worked in Hines, Ill., for Hines Veterans Hospital, then on her return to Ford City, she worked as a caretaker before marrying Edward Bell Sr. on June 5, 1954. They celebrated 49 years of marriage until his passing Oct. 22, 2003. During that time, she worked at the local Head Start Program. With God's blessing, Delores continued to do what she loved, which was to be a stay-at-home wife and mother. Mrs. Bell was a member of Second Baptist Church in Ford City, where she was a choir member and could be seen wearing her "signature hat," smiling, and singing and praising the Lord. She also loved baking bread, playing Uno, and watching "The Young and the Restless" and "Family Feud." She will be dearly missed and fondly remembered by her children, the Rev. Janice (the Rev. Anthony) Massey, of Rochester, Diane Ransom, of Newark, N.J., Edward Bell Jr., of Kittanning, Lucille (Courtney) Senior, of Penn Hills, Arvin (Julia) Bell, of Butler, Ernie (Cleda) Bell, of Worthington, Gene (Kimberly) Bell, of Vandergrift, Charlie Bell, of Ford City, Ephraim Bell, of Pataskala, Ohio, Robin Bell, of Clarion, Jerry Bell, of Ben Avon, and Perry Bell, of Ford City; as well as her brother, Homer (Connie) Allensworth Jr., of Charleroi; her sisters, Juanita Carr, of Ford City, June Reyes and Dorothy Witcher, both of Plum Borough, and Patricia Stevenson, of Washington Township; a sister-in-law, Charlotte Tolliver, of Ford City; and a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. In addition to her husband, Edward Bell Sr., Mrs. Bell was preceded in death by a son, Tyrone Bell; a granddaughter, Corrina Marie Bell; her brothers, Frank James Tolliver Sr. and John M. Allensworth; and her parents, Frank J. Tolliver Sr. and Sarah Catherine Bennett (Tolliver) Allensworth and Homer Allensworth Sr.
