Kathryn Wells

Kathryn (Kitty) Wells, 87, died peacefully in Blue Hill, Maine, on August 9, 2018, surrounded by her loving family.

She was born August 10, 1930, in Evanston, Illinois. She attended Saint Mary of the Woods College before moving to San Francisco with her sister in 1960. Kitty worked as a broker for Merrill Lynch and married Benjamin G. Wells (deceased) in 1962, to whom she was married for 54 years.

Kitty was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. She was smart, practical, and thoughtful, and never minced words. She had a wonderful sense of humor and always had a warm smile.

She will be greatly missed by her children Benjamin III, Barbara (McCrum), and Timothy, as well as her nine grandchildren, her sister Bobbie, and countless friends and family. She was preceded in death by her sisters Joey and Margie, and her husband, Ben.

Arrangements in care of Jordan-Fernald, 49 Main Street, Blue Hill, Maine. Condolences may be expressed at
