Wells, Elisabeth A. (Wilkinson)

Elisabeth A. (Wilkinson) Wells, 32, fell asleep in Jesus June 19, 2009 at home after battling breast cancer for nearly two years. Also known as Betsy she was the beloved wife and "best buddy" of her husband John Wells, the love of his life since they first met at age 13. She was the devoted mother of her two beautiful sons, Robert, 2 ½and Samuel 14 months, the daughter of Leslie and Suzanne (Belisle) Wilkinson, the younger sister and best friend of Sarah Page and her husband Kevin, and sister to her big brother Daniel Wilkinson who always made her laugh all of Westborough. Elisabeth was born July 9, 1976 in Worcester and lived most of her life in Westborough attending school there through grade 8. Betsy attended Norfolk County Agricultural High School in Walpole where she studied horticulture and was a standout athlete winning many cross country track awards leading her school to 3 straight years of cross country championships. She also attended many FFA state and national conventions winning several awards in floral design. Elisabeth was devoted to her Lord being baptized into his saving name April 1, 1995 at the Christadelphian Ecclesia in Worcester. She served her Lord there as an accomplished pianist, organist and taught the young people's group with John administering to their needs for many years. Many of these young people owe their devotion and dedication to the Lord to Elisabeth & John's hours of tireless service and their "listening ears". Elisabeth earned an Associates Degree in Business Administration at Quinsigamond Community College in Worcester and was a talented floral designer working at local floral shops including The Plant Bazaar and Mugford's Flowers both in Westborough. Betsy's heart was always with the family greenhouse business, Hi Hill Farm. After marrying John in 1996 they began their life work together working side by side building their business Wishing Wells Perennials and Pumpkins in Westborough. She loved being outdoors working with God's creation to bring beauty into everyone's life designing gardens for many local people. Betsy's smile and bouncing personality persisted even during the difficult days of her cancer treatments which was exemplified by her tireless effort to plant a beautiful perennial garden at The Peter Levine Cancer Center in Worcester on a raw and cold day last November just so she could bring happiness to other cancer patients being treated there. Her faith never waivered and she now sleeps awaiting her beloved Lord's return and that great resurrection morn of joy and gladness. Betsy's family wishes to thank all those who have so lovingly cared for her and John's needs during this extremely difficult time including; Her brothers and sisters of the Worcester Ecclesia for their helping hands and daily prayers, the women of St. Luke's Parish providing hot meals twice weekly, those from "In your Shoes" who helped get the perennial areas and ready for sale this spring and all who have just stopped by at the farm spending an hour or two helping with the daily work and especially those who continue to help care for her 2 precious little boys Robert & Sam. Donations may be made in her memory to The Worcester Christadelphian to rest in Pine Grove Cemetery in North Grafton. All are welcome to share memories of Ecclesia, 218 Greenwood St. Worcester MA earmarked: Benevolent Fund which will be used to establish a trust fund for the children.

Wilma Anne Grant

GRANT, Wilma Anne Died unexpectedly in her home in Canton on Friday, May 22, 2009. Born February 26, 1930 in Yonkers, NY to William H. and Anna F. Schwiebert, she was the loving wife of John Kenneth Grant for 48 years, until his death June 22, 1998. She was pre-deceased by her beloved sister Ethel Carberry and is survived by her loving and much beloved brother William Schwiebert of Fishkill, NY. She will live on in her four children and their families: Susan Grant Barber and husband Dennis of Putnam Valley, NY, Kenneth Grant and wife Sharon of Dover MA, Richard Grant and wife Karyn of Sudbury, MA, and Kathy Anderson and her husband Steven of Canton, MA. She marveled at the faces of her grandchildren: John Barber and his wife Heather; Katy and Taylor Grant; Marcus, Grant Dillon, Eric, Ethan, and Jesse Anderson and his fianc&eacutee Ines Roque; and great-granddaughter Samantha Barber. We would be remiss to not mention the many loving nieces, nephews, cousins, and very special friends separated by miles who continued to mean so much to her throughout the years. During her rich and vibrant life, Wil continued to celebrate her family at every opportunity, taking special interest in the events and accomplishments of each of them. If you were important to her children, you were important to her. In her earlier years she was an active parent in the Yonkers community, donating time and attention to her children's schools, Christ the King Church, and the parish as a whole. In later years, she enjoyed volunteering at local museums in New York, as well as in Montreal, where she and Ken lived for a time. Wilma loved the arts, and was a gifted artist in her own right. She was an avid tennis player and an enthusiastic fan throughout her life. She and Ken were long-time members of the Amackassin Club in Yonkers, one of the oldest tennis clubs in the US. After moving to Massachusetts, they quickly established themselves in the senior tennis group at Mill Pond in Hanover, where they enjoyed themselves immensely. She took pride in cooking, loved music, the city, dancing, and traveling, and enjoyed walking the beach year-round. Above all, the essence of Wil was her unconditional and unstinting love and support of her family and friends. She touched countless lives in so many positive ways, more than she probably imagined, and her death has left many bereft of her presence. A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at St. John the Evangelist Church, 700 Washington St., Canton on Monday, June 29 at 10:30 AM. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to support the tennis program of the City Parks Foundation of New York City. Please specify Youth Tennis Program in honor of Wilma Grant.
