Annie Lee Saunders Wells, 89, of Fort Lauderdale, Florida passed away peacefully on Oct. 15, 2015 after an extended and courageous struggle with Alzheimer's disease. She was born on July 5, 1926, and raised as one of eight children, to the late Annie Susan Nichols Saunders and James Harvey Saunders of Moneta, in Bedford County, VA. After completing high school, Annie graduated from business school in Lynchburg, VA and pursued a long career with two related telephone companies, both in Virginia and Florida, until her retirement in 1984. She married her beloved husband, the late Melvin Robert "Bob" Wells, of Hurricane, WV, in 1949. They lived and worked in Bedford, VA, Huntington, WV and Fort Lauderdale, FL where they spent 47 of their 49 happy years together. Annie was active in many organizations including Morgans Baptist Church, Girl Scouts of America, School PTA, Telephone Pioneers of America, The American Heart Association, Communication Workers of America and the South Fork Middle River Neighborhood Civic Association. She enjoyed spending time with her family and many friends as well as bowling, watching baseball and making her infamous deviled eggs and baked chocolate beans. Our family has a saying "It is a Sad Day when a SAUNDERS goes Quiet." Annie is survived by her cherished daughter, Barbara "Bobbi" Wells of Lake Worth, FL, her sister, Mary Taylor of Newport News, VA, three sisters-in-law, numerous nieces and nephews and many other relatives and close friends including her devoted caregiver and angel, Judy Shepherd of Fort Lauderdale, FL.
