August 7, 1930 - May 3, 2022
A limb has fallen from our family tree that says grieve not for me, remember the best times, the laughter, the song and the good times I lived when I was strong ~ Alice A. Abell, 91, of Warren Center, Pa passed away peacefully at her home on Tuesday evening, May 3, 2022. A lifelong and a truly loved resident of Warren Center, Alice was born on August 7, 1930, one of four children born to the late Merle and Mary (Dewing) Allyn. She attended school in Warren Center and was a graduate of Vestal High School class of 1947. It was a crisp fall day on October 8,1949, when she married Emerson Abell. Together they shared 60 years of marriage until her heart was broken on February 13, 2010 with his passing. Alice and Emerson treasured their community of Warren Center, where they were members of the Warren Center United Methodist Church and actively participated with the Bradford County Republican Committee. In addition, Alice served as secretary of the Warren Center Cemetery and was a member of the Community Independent Bible Church. Alice and Emerson treasured their family and loved to host reunions at Abells’ Pond. She found great peace, solitude and comfort at the pond. Being surrounded by family warmed Alice’s heart and she always looked forward to having family nearby. Alice and Emerson’s home was a place to come and share memories and gather for a delicious meal. The world would stop every Saturday evening at 7pm while she and Emerson watched the Lawrence Welk Show. She continued this tradition even after he passed away. Many will remember Alice for her love of cooking and baking. She would warm the hearts of those who would visit “Alice’s Kitchen” at the Owego and Athens Valley Stockyards. She lovingly would bake sixty pies each week for her restaurant. Eating a slice of Alice’s pie was like receiving a hug and a kiss from Alice herself! Until we meet again, Mom and Dad, may the angels hold you both in the palm of their hands. Alice has left her fingerprint on the hearts of her family. She will be greatly missed by her six children: Tom (Mary Kay) Abell, Jerry (Bonnie) Abell, Robert D. Abell, Dennis (Shirley) Abell, Daniel (Sharon) Abell, and Mary (Glenn) Wolfe. Her brother-in-law and sister-in-law: Dee (Anna) Abell; Her special grandchildren: Tommy (Megan), Todd (Misty), Khristina (Micah), Rindy (Kishore), Rob (Lisa), Roxanna (Maurice), Pamela, Clyde (Myriah), Jon (Becky), Heidi (Nathan), Robin (Austin), Bryan (Natalie), Anne-Shirley (Joel), Denise (Nicko), Jared, Raeanna (Chris), Daniel (Jessica), Jacquelyn, Ben (Ally), Sam, Stacy (David) and Craig (Nikki); 50 great grandchildren; many, many, nieces, nephews and their families also survive.
