Jeanne Marie (Welborn) Bell died September 29, 2018. Born in Carmel, Indiana, on December 13, 1928, to Theodore and Colletta Welborn, she married Robert Lee ''June'' Bell, Jr., in 1950. She worked as a switchboard operator for Bell Telephone and as a receptionist for Conway Memorial Hospital and the Log Cabin Democrat. She loved sewing, cooking, and looking for a hot cup of coffee. Above all, she loved serving others, especially her family. To know her was to love her. Within minutes, she was everyone's friend and surrogate Mimi.
She leaves behind her siblings, Wanda Jackson, Judy Troillet, and Larry Welborn; her children Steve (Paula) Bell, Laura (Ray) Nabholz, Bruce (Melanie) Bell, and Bobbie (Michael) Huff; as well as eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents and husband, as well as her sisters Rosemary Welborn and Dorothy Knapp, and great-granddaughter Emma Nabholz.
Pallbearers will be Grant Nabholz, Taylor Bell, Miles Bell, Blake Bell, Kraig Bowden, and Jeremy Bell
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Bethlehem House or the City of Hope Outreach.
