She married Chancey Wells on October 20, 1942 and completed her education at Minerva Central School as an adult. Florence put her whole self into all she attempted to accomplish, finishing high school as an adult, teaching herself to play piano, working on their family farm, helping her children with their schoolwork and her husband with his studies in electronics for his new job at the Waterveliet Arsenal, and her duties as a member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, as well as her 35 years as a dedicated employee of the YMCA in Schenectady. She helped many young people through the years, our neighbor cousins and cousins in Vermont as well as fostering three children and teaching Sabbath School at church. She took care of her mother-in-law and her own mother when she could no longer work at the age of 80. Besides her parents, she is predeceased by her beloved husband of 45 years, Chancey Wells; daughter, Rosalyn Gadway; and two granddaughters, Shelly and Amy Hammond.
