Wanda Lee Moore Wells
Birth: Jan. 21, 1944
Taylor Mill
Kenton County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Oct. 12, 2003
West Columbia
Lexington County
South Carolina, USA

Wanda Lee Moore Wells, 59, of Lexington County, South Carolina entered into rest Sunday, October 12, 2003, in Lexington Medical Center after a struggle with cancer. Loving mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, & wife, she was born on January 21, 1944, in Taylor Mill, Kentucky, the oldest daughter of the late George Ambrose Moore and Bessie Marie Scott Moore and wife of William Roscoe Wells. Her family has placed a cenotaph marker in Corinth Cemetery, Kentucky, where many of her husbands deceased family members lie in rest, to honor Wanda's memory (Picture 1)

The majority of Wanda's childhood years were spent in the Flat Creek / Mt Zion region of Grant County, Ky., after her family moved there when she was age 3 and she later attended Grant County High School in Dry Ridge, Ky. She married William R. Wells July 24, 1966 and later had two children, a son, William Jr. (Billy) and a daughter, Tonya. In the early 1970's, they bought their first home in Glencoe, Ky. and resided there in Gallatin County for many years before moving in 1978 and settling in Lexington County, SC. The years moved on where she saw her children graduate from school and become young adults with families of their own. She liked meeting and talking to people, working occasionally as a restaurant waitress and hostess. However, she never stopped being "mom" for her two children and eventually, "grandmother" became a portion of her life she welcomed with open arms.

Wanda is survived at the time of her passing by her husband, son and daughter; one sister, Shirley (Roy) Bowling of Erlanger, Ky; one brother, Jerry (Crystal) Moore of Augusta, Ga; five grandchildren, and a number of other relatives and close friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; and two brothers, Douglas Moore and Timothy Moore.
