Charlotte Otelia Wells

Charlotte Otelia Wells passed away November 11, 2020 in her home surrounded by her family. She was preceded in death by her husband, William Wells Sr.; her parents, Anna Campbell Parker and Daniel Campbell Sr.; her brother, Daniel Campbell Jr.; her daughter, Lisa Douglas; and her son, Gregory Wells.

 Mrs. Wells was born on August 21, 1938 to Anna Campbell Parker and Daniel Campbell Sr. in Louisa.  She attended Louisa County schools and graduated from A.G. Richardson High in 1956. Charlotte worked different places before finding her career as a finance manager for Medical Facilities of America. After retiring she went on to pursue her true passion, teaching others about Jehovah God and his son, Jesus. In 2000, she became a regular pioneer, dedicating 70 hours or more each month in preaching and teaching work. Mrs. Wells served as a regular pioneer right up until her death. It didn’t matter who you were; or where you were, if you were in hearing range, she told you about Jehovah and his kingdom. Mrs. Wells enjoyed traveling and attending the sporting events of her children and grandchildren. She had a large family, physically and spiritually, that she wanted to always be around. If there was a gathering, she was there, dancing and smiling.  

 Mrs. Wells leaves to cherish her memory six children, William Wells Jr. (Bernice), Saundra Taylor (Paul), Sherman Wells, Marquita Minor, Christie Smith (Jacob), and Jason Wells (Erin); 20 grandchildren, Christopher Wells, William Wells III, Veronica Jean-Pierre, Brentton Taylor, Tunisia Douglas, Shannon Douglas, April Forbes, Heather Minor, Frank Minor, Felice Minor, Karistan Smith, Calvin Smith, Kasey Smith, Eric Greer, Ondraya Wells, Dimitri Smith, Zion Wells, Ashley Meyer, Anthony Williams, and Jamirah Grooms; 29  great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren; three sisters, Debra Bowers, Eunice Holland (Roy) and Lois Roberts (Donald); and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

The Wells family thanks everyone for their phone calls, cards, and prayers. It was deeply appreciated. A thank you to the nursing staff of At Home Care as well as Kindred Hospice for their loving and professional care of our mother and grandmother.  A very special thank you to Glenda Maphis for the special attention given to our mother.
