Cleta Fay Wells, 80, of Skellytown, passed away on October 8, 2022, in Amarillo.

Cleta was born on November 23, 1941, to Elzie and Hazel McEntire in Reydon, OK. She grew up, attended, and graduated school in Reydon. She later married her high school sweetheart, Roy Lee Wells, on December 22, 1966, in Wheeler. They later moved to Skellytown with Roy’s work in 1972 and have resided there ever since. They shared 35 years and raised three children before he preceded her in death in 2001.

Cleta was blessed when she found companionship again when she reconnected with Jack Dunn in 2007. Cleta was a fun-loving woman who was fond of Elvis Presley's music, dancing with Roy Lee, and collecting antiques and ceramics.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; and a brother, Doran McEntire.
