Tammy Lee Wells, 52, of Bassett, Va. departed this life on Sunday, December 17, 2017 at SOVAH Health in Danville, Va. She was born November 16, 1965 to Marshall Lee Wells Sr. and Alberta Hairston Wells. She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Rufus Hairston, and Jeanetta Estes Hairston; paternal grandparents, George Marshall Wells, and Lucy Jane Wells.

Tammy was a loving child to her parents, sister to her brothers, and sister, sister-in-law's, brother-in-law, aunt to her nieces and nephews and a friend to all of her extended family and friends. Although Tammy was born with cerebral Palsy, and not able to talk, walk, work, or do the things that many people take for granted, Tammy was able to express her love with a look, a squeeze, or just by waving her hands and feet. Tammy showed us how to be strong and persevere as we watched her fight many battles with health limitations.


She leaves to cherish in memories her parents, Marshall Lee Wells Sr. and Alberta Hairston Wells of Bassett, Va.; two brothers, Pastor Marshall Lee Wells Jr. (Brenda) and Leroy Wells (Aileen), both of Bassett, Va.; one sister, Angela Michelle Kidd (Daniel) of Martinsville, Va.; three nieces, Marshanda Renee Wells, of Bassett, Va., Daneshia Michelle Kidd, and Cierra Preston, both of Martinsville; two nephews, Carlos Preston of Martinsville, Va., and Marshall Lee Wells III of Bassett, Va.; and a host of aunts, uncles, other relatives, and friends.

Visitation will be held Friday from 11:30 a.m. to noon at Faith Tabernacle Holiness Church in Bassett, Va. Funeral services will be conducted at noon with burial to follow at Carver Memorial Gardens.
