Colony Court Resident Profile

Say Hello to Arlys

Arlys Fell

Colony Court Resident

This month of May 2022 brings us to introduce another of our residents, Arlys Fell.

         Arlys was born into the Joseph & Loretta Helget family of Comfrey, MN on February 15, 1942. She attended school in town and graduated in 1960. She went on to Mankato Commercial College for bookkeeping, then worked for Green Giant in LeSueur. One fateful night she met Ray Fell at a local ballroom, and he swept her off her feet. They married in ’63 and moved to Waseca which was Ray’s hometown. The two of them moved to Clear Lake and started their family. When they outgrew their home, they moved near the Snake Trail.

         Arlys was a stay-at-home mom until the kids were grown, then she worked for EF Johnson’s and Sacred Heart Church. She also worked at Shady Oaks Nursery until they closed. Her spare time was spent dancing with her beau, listening to bluegrass bands, enjoying family gatherings, and traveling.  

         A few years ago, Arlys & Ray had some health issues that prevented them from taking care of their home. They chose Colony Court as their next residence because between all the choices, this was the best for them. “We’re happy we chose Colony Court. Everyone is friendly and we know a lot of people that live here. We enjoy it.”

         We enjoy you too, Arlys, and we’re glad you’re here!
