REFLECTIONS OF LIFE
On August 21, 1945 Nonna Adele was born to the proud parents Roy and Mabel Bell. Nonna was born in Harlem, NY and raised in the Patterson projects of the Bronx, NY. She attended P.S. 18, Berger Junior High School and went on to graduate from Morris High School. She also worked many jobs in her lifetime. Nonna worked as a direct care worker at Young Adults Institute. While employed with YAI, she would pick up extra clients from UCP as a caretaker. It suited her servant heart, Nonna always wanted to help whoever she could even if that meant she would go without. She later retired from United Cerebral Palsy.
Nonna wore many hats, a loving mother, dedicated grandmother, fun sister, cool aunt, incredible cousin, great friend and a fun coworker. Her family and childhood friends know her as '"NUNCY" others know her as 'NONNABELL" or "ADELA". We will remember her for her eye for fashion, her vibrant personality, her love for her family and her compassionate soul. She was adventurous, whenever she could she would take a road trip. Nonna Bell always spoke her mind whether good or bad, her intentions were always good, you just couldn't tell her anything. If you know Nonna Bell, you know her tongue spoke for itself. She did not hold back. EVER. I'm going to leave that at that. On Thursday, September 16, 2021 at 1:30 pm Nonna was called home by the Lord, she was surrounded by her two children, Lynn and Kenny.
Her memory will be carried on by her children Lynn Taylor and Kenneth Middleton Sr.; daughter-in-law, Sally Merced; son-in-law, Gerald Green; siblings Ethel Bell, Pastor Lawrence Bell, Charlotte Casey and Charmaine Bell; grandchildren, Jourdan Taylor, Johnathan Taylor, Lyndia Taylor, Kenneth Middleton Jr. and Lynasia Taylor.
Waiting at the gates of Heaven are her parents, Roy and Mabel Bell; daughter, Patrina Cheryl Edwards; brother, Ronald 'Ronnie' Bell; sister, Patricia Sapp; nephews, Robert Carter; Ronnell Bell and many other loved ones. She will be missed by all who were blessed to have known her.
