Asia Wells - East Machias

Asia L. Well,  26, was tragically taken from us too soon on November 26, 2017 when she was involved in a motor vehicle accident on her way home to East Machias from spending time with her family in Vermont. 

Born on August 18, 1991 in Berlin, Vermont, Asia graduated from Spaulding High School and moved to Maine where she attended the University of Maine in Machias to begin her career in education. Asia graduated May 16, 2015 with a Bachelor in Science in Elementary Education concentration in social studies. She graduated Magna Cum Laude. Asia was a teacher at Rose Gaffney Elementary School during the regular school year and taught at the Blueberry Harvest School for three summers. Asia was admired by her students and coworkers. She had such a love for life, her students, people, teaching and family. Her smile and humor was infectious and brought joy and laughter to everyone around her.
