Marilyn Wells, 80 years old of Phoenix, AZ, peacefully passed away surrounded by her loving family on April 13, 2023. She was born on September 14, 1942 to her parents George E. Pearce and Margaret McNally in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Marilyn first came to the United States when she won an immigration lottery and immediately moved to Ellicottville, NY.
