Bobbie Lou Cummings Wells was greeted by so many family members and friends at the young age of 90 as she made her way home Saturday evening the 17th of December, 2022. She was the beloved wife of Clint and devoted mother to her three sons Kyle, Kreg (d. 1980) and Kameron.
Born on the 2nd of May 1932 to Marjorie and Lewis Cummings, she lived her life in the Birmingham area. Bobbie attended Gibson Elementary and Woodlawn High School (1950) where she was proud to be a Cheerleader for the Colonels, a Honorary Captain of the ROTC Unit and a Member of the Sub Deb Sorority. After graduation, she attended Massey Business College and then went to work for US Pipe.
Bobbie met Clint in 1951. They dated and were married in March 1954 at East Lake Methodist Church. After a stay in Germany, thanks to the US Air Force, they returned and settled in Woodlawn, then Roebuck and lastly in Odenville.
Bobbie enjoyed being active with the William J Christian Elementary School PTA. Later she was a much loved Counselor for the Methodist Youth Fellowship (MYF) at Trussville UMC. And then Bobbie served as Secretary to eight pastors at Wilson Chapel UMC for over thirty years.
Bobbie was a competitor and fighter at heart and that spirit made her a sixteen year breast cancer survivor. She loved swimming, playing tennis and working out, especially with her friends Dave, Darryl and Larry (Sportplex) and cheering for the Alabama Crimson Tide.
The Funeral Service for Mrs Bobbie Lou Cummings Wells will be held on Wednesday, December 28,2022 at 12:00PM at Jefferson Memorial Funeral Home. The family will receive friends from 10:00PM-12:00PM on Wednesday, December 28, 2022 at the funeral home. Graveside services will follow.
Bobbie had a huge soft spot in her heart for neglected animals, particularly canines. Rather than sending flowers, the family would request that donations be made in Bobbie's memory to the Pell City Animal Control Shelter or the Breast Cancer Research Foundation of Alabama.
