She was born January 11, 1919 to J. Les and Mary Clubine of Morden. She married Charlie Bell of Miami, MB in 1945 and they moved to Winnipeg, raising 3 children. Mom was a founding member of the Winnipeg Teachers Wives Association and was an active member until recent years, raising Scholarship money for deserving students going into the field of Education. Through this organization she made many lasting friendships. Mom valued her family above everything else. She enjoyed her trips to the farm and watching her grandchildren and great grandchildren grow up.

She will be greatly missed by her children, Ron Bell, Joan (Wayne) Carson and Jim Bell, her grandchildren, Brad (Jody) Carson, Neil (Denise) Carson, Keith (Jenn) Carson, and Tracy (Cam) Page, her great grandchildren, Cheyenne, Austin, Cody, Carly-Jo, Chloe, Carter, and Kaleb, her sister, Olive Enns, sister-in-law, Marion (Bill) Goodwin and brother-in-law, Rowland Del Bigio as well as many nieces and nephews.
