Betty Ann Wells Hewett, 75

WILMINGTON — Betty Ann Wells Hewett, age 75, of Wilmington, North Carolina passed away on Wednesday, September 21, 2022 surrounded by her family after a long battle with Alzheimer’s.

Betty was born April 30, 1947 in Wilmington, North Carolina to Eden Eugene Wells and Helen Lucille Wells on April 30, 1947. She was raised by her grandmother Ida Bertha Wells for whom Betty was most grateful for giving her a spiritual education and foundation of faith.

Betty was reborn by accepting Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord in 1957 and had been a member of Calvary Baptist Church and Gibson Avenue Baptist Church.
