Eleanor Kay Wells

December 15, 1944 ~ August 3, 2020 (age 75)


Eleanor Kay Wells, age 75, passed away August 3, 2020 at Norton Hospital in Louisville, KY. She was born December 15, 1944 in Bedford to parents Charles Everett and Nettie (Terrell) Brewer. She married Larry Richard Wells April 28, 1972. She was retired from GE and was a small business owner. She was a member of Church of God Prophecy. Kay enjoyed ministering to others and demonstrated her beliefs and faith in all she did. Whether that was providing food to needy families, donating clothes to those in need from a second hand store that she ran. In 2005 Kay became and ordained minister and continued to share her faith, knowledge and love of God with everyone she met. During retirement she was a caregiver to her ailing sister, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Kay enjoyed traveling and spending time with her family. Some might say that she was a thrill seeker as well, from spending time at the race track in her younger years to riding roller coasters at the age of 69 with her grandchildren to going zip-lining two days before her 74th birthday. 

She is survived by husband Larry Richard Wells of Salem
