Sanral Welch Wells

Avera, GA –                Sanral Welch Wells, 74, peacefully entered into her eternal rest late Sunday night, March 20, 2022, at Piedmont Augusta Hospital. Family and friends are welcomed to celebrate her life from 6:00-8:00 P.M. Thursday evening, March 24, 2022 at James Funeral Home.

Because of the family’s respect and concern for public health and safety during this COVID-19 pandemic, the family requests that social distancing and other safety precautions be followed.  The wearing of face masks is strongly encouraged during any gathering.  

Lovingly called Sam by family and friends, she was born September 9, 1947 in Dearing.  She lived in many places across Georgia and Florida before settling in Avera. A homemaker in her later years, you would find her on a dairy farm milking cows in her younger years.  She was known for her home cooking and baking.  The family would always gather to enjoy great food with good company. Sam will be dearly missed by all her family and friends.

Sam is preceded in death by her husband, Pete Wells; parents, Clonnie Lewis Welch and Harvey Welch; brothers, Henry Welch, Harvey Welch, C. W.  Welch, and David Welch; and sisters, Mary Lizzie Newsome and Margie Williams. Those left to cherish her memories include her sons, Ricky Gay of Avera, John Wells of Indiana, and J. T. Wells of Avera; sister, Connie Dillinger; special friend and sister by love, Barbara Welch; nine grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, other extended family and friends.
