The youngest of three daughters, Frederica Ann Wells was born February 15, 1927 in Gloversville, New York to Michael and Ruth Haban. Raised in Johnstown, New York, “Fritzy” as she was affectionately called during her teenage years, spent her youth involved in sports, theatre and music. A recognized big band jazz singer, Fritzanne toured with her band as the lead singer during World War II to promote and raise money for war bonds. She was a member of the “Daughters of the American Revolution” (DAR), an avid tennis player, a PTA mom and loving mother to six (6) children. She was also a devoted wife to Richard Kelly Wells for thirty seven (37) years prior to his death. Her later years were spent reading, knitting, writing poetry and counseling her children and grandchildren. She loved dogs, was a crossword puzzle enthusiast and die-hard sports fan—especially football.
