Leah Mae Wells
PRICE/WELLINGTON - Leah Mae Wells, age 78, of Wellington, was welcomed home by loving arms on March 20, 2004.
Leah was born to James Kershew and Vena May Wells March 19, 1926, in Victor, Emery.
Leah's place in the family was an enviable one. She was the first girl, and a red head to boot. She grew up mainly on the family farm at Victor. This was the ideal place under Jim and Vena's care to raise great crops, great livestock, and most importantly great children, all of which were counted as their "jewels".
Leah's life was filled with a love of learning. She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served an honorable mission in Canada. She was a knowledgeable scriptorian, and enjoyed sharing that knowledge and testimony as she served excellently as a gospel doctrine teacher. Leah held many other church callings, being a seminary teacher and musical director were among her most memorable.
Leah worked for the Carbon County School District for a total of 31 years, 19 of which she was an elementary education teacher. Teaching and music were two of the great loves of her life, and combining the two was absolute heaven. Surely many of her past students have a dusty ukulele tucked away on some forgotten closet shelf.
Leah was a talented writer and poet. She gave each member of her family a beautifully written family history which we all treasure. Leah loved "All Things Beautiful". We will dearly miss those things about her that we loved most.
Survived by brother, Robert E. (Carol) Wells of Salt Lake; three sisters, Anne Watt of Wellington; Pat (Gary) Christensen of Logan; Verna (Larry) Lauritsen of Price; sister-in-law, Colleen Wells of Wellington; and nephews and nieces a plenty. Preceded in death by parents; brothers, Lynn, Ray, and Dal; sister-in-law, Jean Wells; and brother-in-law, James Watt III.
The funeral will be Tuesday, Mar. 23, 11 a.m. in the Wellington LDS 1stt /4th LDS Ward Chapel with a viewing one hour prior to the funeral. Burial, Wellington City Cemetery under the direction of Fausett Mortuary in Price.
Do you think the Utah Legislature should increase appropriations for public education in Utah beyond the current legislative trend in the past few years of funding only for growth in student population?
