Mary Ann Wells, 1940–2017

Mary Ann was born in Long Beach to parents Charles and Geraldine Stoll. She is survived by her beloved husband of 52 years, Lawrence Wells; also by their three daughters, Cyndi, Lisa and Melinda; 10 grandchildren; and four brothers.

Mary Ann graduated from Fullerton High School and earned an A.A. degree from Fullerton Junior College. In marriage, she was a stay-at-home mom, raising and caring for her three daughters. She was always there for them. They have matured into three fine women, thanks greatly to her tender loving care.

Mary Ann enjoyed quilting and golfing, leaving a large circle of friends in Bear Valley Springs. She traveled extensively with her husband, both domestically and foreign. They took nine ocean cruises together. She will be greatly missed by all.
