July 3, 1935 - April 11, 2020
Mary Bell, El Reno resident for 49 years, went to be with her Lord and Savior, April 11, 2020 in Yukon. She was born July 3, 1935 in Bennington, OK to Roy and Violet Whitmore. On August 13, 1951, she married the love of her life and best friend Vernon Bell. Together the two of them shared 68 years and 7 months happily married. Mary, better known as Nanny Bell to everyone she met, loved her family and friends deeply. She was known for her cooking, especially her family’s favorites, pancakes, mashed potatoes, chocolate gravy, and homemade fries; no one ever left her home hungry. Nanny loved to spend time with her family. She taught all of her grandkids and most of her great-grandkids how to drive. She impacted the lives of many, including her husband, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, adopted grandchildren, and church family. She was truly a devoted Pastor’s Wife, Mom, and Nanny. Nanny Bell’s smile, hugs, and unconditional love will be missed dearly by all of those she loved. She was loved by all she met and once you knew her, she considered you family. Mary “Nanny” Bell, is survived by her husband, Vernon Bell; children, Doris Norton, David Bell and wife Tina, Debbie Stone and husband Bob, and Terry Bell and wife Jamie; grandchildren, Tami Maine and husband Tilo, Dustin Bell, Tisha Boydston and husband Greg, Trea Argo, Coltin Bell and wife Courtney, and Tyler Argo and wife Sara; great-grandchildren, Madison-Kris, Preston-Kaci, Taylor-Maxwell, Jenesis, Jayson, Reace, Karlee, Hayven, Elijah, Skylar, Kynzlee, Aidyn, Kyah, and Cheynne; sister, Vessie Cantrell; and numerous other loving family members and friends. She is preceded in death by her father and mother; brothers and sisters; grandson, Devin Bell; and great- granddaughter, Aubrey Argo. A private service will be held to celebrate and honor the life of Mary Bell. Services are under the direction of Wilson Funeral Home. The family would like to thank everyone for their love and prayers during this difficult time.
