Edith Pearl Wells, 87 formerly of Dehue, WV, Louisa, KY, and Chapmansville, WV, is now in the presence of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She departed this earthly body on Monday, April 24, 2017 and is now rejoicing in her glorified body. Edith was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend. She was a joy to everyone she met. It was her desire to make those around her feel like her family.
Edith loved God with her whole heart. She was a shining example of a woman of faith. She said many times that she would not want to be anyone else because she knew what her relationship was with God. She valued that relationship and was a witness to her family, friends, and complete strangers. Edith made lasting impressions on each and every person with whom she came in contact.
