Obituary for Barbara J. Wells

Barbara Jean Wells left this earth on March 5, 2020 surrounded by her loving family after a short battle with cancer. Barb was born on October 7, 1954 to William F. and Janet M. Brown in Angola, Indiana. She married her best friend and soul mate Ralph L. Wells on April 8, 1988 in Coldwater, MI and he survives.

Barb is survived by her devoted husband Ralph; two children, Israel (Amanda) Ferguson of Bronson, MI and daughter, Gretchen (Rob) Alldredge of Coldwater, MI; her sister Sharon Brown of Camden, MI; her grandsons, Timothie Ferguson, James Ferguson, Skylor Atwell, and Jace Ferguson; four great grandchildren; and her devoted dog, Riley.

Barb will be remembered for her unconditional love and contagious sense of humor. Whether teaching her son to fish or her daughter to cook, she did it with imagination and love. Her love will live on in those she loved so much and in the generations that follow.

Per Barb’s wishes, cremation will take place and there will be no service. Family will have a celebration of her life at a later date. She has asked that any donations be made to Animal Aid of Branch County.
Arrangements are entrusted to Dutcher Funeral Home in Coldwater.
