My mother, Helen Juanita Wells aka “Grandma Wells” is an amazing 93 years young and very active. She’s the epidemy of a “Widow in Deed” as described in the Bible. During the course of her life, she has fed the hungry, clothed the naked, sheltered the homeless and taught Sunday School for over 60 years. She was a faithful and loving wife to my Daddy for 58 years (until his transition) and is the mother of four. God has blessed her to see her children and their children grow into wonderful men and women of God totaling over 40 in number (including her fury grandmeows). She also has three great-great grandchildren and another on the way this August. “Neatsy” as she is also affectionately known, is the matriarch of her extended family. God has graced her to still be able to drive her little red buggy and she is quite savvy in using FB and Zoom. Two of her favorite hobbies are to make jewelry and homemade cards on the computer. She also participates on the weekly prayer calls, attends Church regularly and loves to go to the senior center several times a week to play games and fellowship with her friends. She truly exemplifies Proverbs 31:30-31 as stated “Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates.” ~ Brenda
