Patty Wells was born in Ashland, Kentucky on May 30, 1934 to Marvin Campbell and his wife, Anne (Jordan) Campbell. She passed away on Sunday, June 18, 2017 at her home in the Guy’s Store Community. She had lived in Spring for the past 17 years, having moved there from Yantis, Texas. However, she always kept her home in Guy’s Store through the years, visiting often, because she loved this area of Leon County and she loved the people. She told her children that it was where she wanted to be when she passed away.
She was a wife and homemaker until her children were grown. She she worked for Stewart and Stevenson and, later, moved to Lake Fork, Texas to help manage a bait and tackle shop. She loved fishing and especially loved catching crappie. She was a loving and giving mother, grandmother (“Memaw”) and friend. She will be missed by all that knew her.
