February 26, 1930 - February 6, 2021
Mary Ruth Wells Age 90 of Spanish Lake, MO. Mary Ruth Wells joined her husband, Clarence "Jack" Wells, and her son, Thom Wells, in Heaven early in the morning on Saturday, February 6th, 2021. Mary was born February 26, 1930 to Joseph and Leona Wilson in Tomnolen, Mississippi. At the age of 11 Mary moved from Mississippi to Saint Louis, MO with her parents. There she met her husband Jack. In 1943, months after getting married, Jack went off to war. Mary found a job at a local shoe factory and diligently corresponded by mail while he served overseas in World War II. After the war they started a family and she continued working at the shoe factory for some time. Moving from the city of St. Louis to Spanish Lake, Mary finished raising her 3 sons and worked alongside her husband running the family horse stables. After retirement, she enjoyed the quiet activities of everyday life. Caring for her garden, reading, sewing, embroidering, cooking and spending time with her grandchildren. Her family and friends will always remember her kind and quiet soul. When given the time, she loved to tell stories of her past. She recounted her childhood in Mississippi, where she played in hay stacks, picked cotton as a share-cropper’s daughter and would sometimes be given the treat of riding to town in the car to buy ice cream. She is survived by her son Don Wells and his wife Tammy Wells; her son Larry Wells and his wife Belinda Wells; her daughter in law Rosalie Wells; as well as seven grandchildren, eight great grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild.
