Long-Time Local Health Care Professional Judy Wells Dead at 65
Long-time local health care professional Judy Carol Wells, of Greenway, died Thursday, April 5, 2018, following a lengthy and couragous battle with cancer. She was 65 years old. In September of 2016 she retired as a Nurse Practitioner, a position she held at Piggott Family Medical Clinic, ending more than 45 years of caring for others.
Wells began her career in medicine in the early 1970s as she became a Licensed Pratical Nurse. After serving in this capacity for 12 years she went back to school, gaining her Registered Nurse license and becoming an RN. After another 12 years of service she once again returned to school, and became a Nurse Practitioner—a position she held at the local clinic for an additional 22 years before her health forced retirement.
No funeral service is planned, although a visitation was held Sunday, April 8, at Hoggard and Sons Funeral Home of Piggott. A private burial will be held at a later date.
The family suggests memorials to the fight against cancer or to the Flo and Phil Jones Hospice House, Jonesboro, Ark. The complete obituary for Judy Wells may be found in that section of this website.
