Mildred Jene Wells, age 86, of Broken Bow passed from this life on April 26, 2021 at Paris Regional Medical Center. She was born December 21, 1934 to Herman and Ollie Mae Lewis in Watson, OK. She lived all her life in McCurtain County.
Mildred married Albert Jim Wells Jr. on December 23, 1947 at the age of 15 in DeQueen, AR. She and Albert spent a wonderful 35 years together before his passing in 1982.
Mildred’s family says she was the matriarch, the heart and soul of the family. She was the kind of person who always uplifted and inspired others. Mildred was hardworking, honest, and fair. Her door was always open to anyone. She was “our rock”. The one word that her family would use to describe their mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother is “HOME”.
Mildred enjoyed cooking, drinking coffee, and working outside in her yard growing flowers. She also enjoyed going to the casino, playing nickel slot machines and her social time at the casino with her sisters.
Mildred is preceded in death by her husband, Albert; her parents, Herman and Ollie Mae Lewis; granddaughter, Amber Dawn Wells; great granddaughter, Samara Wallis; several brothers and sisters.
