Mary Apolinar Wells

Nov. 20, 1930 – July 19, 2010

Mary Apolinar Wells died Monday, July 19, 2010, in Waukesha with her husband and son at her side. Mary was born Nov. 20, 1930, in Chicago, to Sylvestre and Maria Angulo Apolinar.

She attended the Baptist Missionary Training School in Chicago and following that, worked in Brooklyn, N.Y., Reno, Nev., and Cordova, Alaska. She also did graduate work at Aurora College in Chicago. In 1965, she was married to the Rev. Dr. William L. Wells.

To them, two sons were born, Bill Jr. (Kay) of Waukesha and Mark (Pamela) of North Attleborough, Ma.
