Lauris Grace Bell passed away on Aug. 8, 2010, at the age of 92.

She was born on May 6, 1918, in Loup City, Neb., to Maude and Arthur Reed. She was the third of seven children. Two of the children died in infancy.

The family moved to Colorado and she began school in Greeley, later graduating from the Fort Lupton Schools in 1936. She attended Nebraska Wesleyan College. She returned to the Brighton area and on Nov. 21, 1937, she married Charles L. Bell in Denver.

The couple lived in various locations along the Front Range until settling in Brighton. Charles and Lauris had three sons: Lowell, Lynn and Jeff. Lauris was a homemaker for many of her years, while Charles supported the family farming, delivering ice and coal, and later driving a long-haul furniture van. Lauris worked for United Lumber as a bookkeeper. They retired to the Windsor area. Lauris returned to Brighton after Charles' death in 2004. Lauris enjoyed playing cards, especially bridge.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Charles; her brothers, Nerwin and Don; and sisters, Maxine and Marjorie.

Lauris is survived by her sons, Lowell (Peg), Lynn (Sue) and Jeff (Mary). She has six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, as well as many nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held at 10:30 a.m. Aug. 13, 2010, at the Brighton United Methodist Church. Lauris will be interred with her family at Elmwood Cemetery in Brighton.
