Marcella Wells

RAPID CITY - Marcella Wells, 93, Rapid City and formerly of Deadwood, died Thursday, Feb. 14, at Fountain Spring Health Care in Rapid City. She is survived by one son, Stanley T. Wells, Kasilor, Alaska; and three daughters, Nancy Roth, Rapid City, Darlyne Merkel, Grand Junction, Colo., and Linda Wells, Sturgis. Arrangements are pending with Aldinger Funeral Home and Cremation Service in Spearfish. Published in the Rapid City Journal on 2/15/2008.

~~~Marcella was receeded in death by her husband Cleo Wells in 1979. Cleo was a Mortician and they run the Wells Funeral Home in Deadwood. They bought my mother's pottery shop building next to the Forest Service Building on Sherman Street in the 1950s and built a new Funeral Home. They both were very active in the community. Following is a fuzzy enlargement of Cleo in 1951. I hope to have an update to this post in near future.
