Irma V. Wells, a homemaker and volunteer, died in her sleep Thursday at her home in Rehoboth Beach, Del. She was 85.

She was born Irma V. Crouse in Baltimore and spent several years in Bayside, N.Y., before moving to Stoneleigh with her family. She was a 1934 graduate of Towson High School and earned a bachelor's degree from Hood College in 1938.

She worked for the Social Security Administration for several years before her 1941 marriage to Donald J. Wells, who became a co-owner with his brother of Wells Liquors in the 6300 block of York Road. He died in 1993.

Mrs. Wells and her husband had been early residents of Cross Keys, and moved to Rehoboth in 1984. She was a former president of the Stoneleigh Garden Club and had been a member of First and St. Stephen's United Church of Christ.

She was a longtime volunteer with the Rehoboth Art League.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. today at the Mitchell Wiedefeld Funeral Home, 6500 York Road.

Mrs. Wells is survived by two daughters, Carol J. Gelding of Rehoboth Beach and Nancy D. Zimmerman of Atlanta; and two grandsons.
