Louise Newsome Wells

Duluth, GA  – Louise Mary Wright Newsome Wells, 79, left us to be with her Lord on Friday night, April 12, 2013 at Northside Hospital Forsyth in Cumming GA.  Graveside services will be held at 2:30PM on Monday, April 15, 2013 at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church Cemetery, Avera GA with Rev. Nathan Adams officiating.

One of seven children born to the late Annie Padgett and Ellis Newsome, Louise grew up in Jefferson County and attended high school in Avera.  In the 1960’s, she lived in Columbia SC and worked at Horseman Doll Company. For the last 45 years, Louise lived in the Atlanta area where she held accounting positions at Frito-Lay, Inc. and Dekalb County Fleet Maintenance Department.  She was a past member of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, a member of Briarlake Baptist Church in Tucker GA, and was currently attending First Redeemer Church in Cumming GA. Louise was a single mom, who worked hard to raise her three girls, giving them an example of a loving, Christian woman who in all circumstances relied on her Savior and loved Him with all her heart.  Her favorite pastime was reading; favorite place to be was the beach; and favorite television show was NCIS; however, she found her greatest joy in her three grandchildren.

Louise was also preceded in death by four siblings, Cleon Newsome, M.P. Newsome, Evelyn Newsome Brooks, and Risden Newsome. Those left to cherish her memories are her three daughters, Anita Wells of Duluth, Kay Wells Koerner (Michael) of Cumming, and Debbie Wells Drew (Jay) of Cumming; two siblings, Lamar Newsome of  Augusta, and Janette Newsome Hadden of Augusta; three grandchildren, Emily Louise Drew, Joshua Lane Drew and Claudia Hannah Koerner; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions be made to James Funeral Home, PO Box 588, Wrens GA 30833.
Stairway To Heaven

They say memories are golden
Well, maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
No one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway
And heartache make a lane,
I’d walk the path to Heaven
And bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.
