On Thursday, August 6, 2020, Sommer Renee Wells, a loving wife and devoted mother of two, passed away at the age of 44.
Sommer was born on August 23, 1975 in Columbus, Ohio to Danny and Brenda (Crabtree) Humphries. She was a 1999 graduate of The Ohio State University, and upon graduation, she began her career as an Occupational Therapist in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus. She also worked for Easter Seals of Greater Houston in the Early Childhood Intervention program. Sommer married her friend and love of her life, James H. Wells, Jr. on June 28, 2003. They have two children, Ian and Sydney Wells.
Sommer had a passion for her work in providing therapy to pediatric patients, and she adored and loved watching those patients build new skills. Sommer was also dedicated to her children, Ian and Sydney, as they were her pride and joy. Sommer will be remembered for her beautiful soul, and for having a smile that could light up any room. She was a devout Christian who enjoyed attending services at The Ark Church in Conroe, TX.
Sommer is survived by her husband, Jamie; two children, Ian and Sydney Wells; father, Danny (Susan) Humphries; mother, Brenda Arrington; brother, Todd (Heather) Humphries; father-in-law, James Wells; mother-in-law, Connie Dorn; several cousins, nieces, and a nephew.
A Celebration of Life will be held on a later date, when restrictions ease, and all family and friends can be together. The family asks that, in lieu of flowers or monetary donations, that you give blood or platelets at your nearest blood bank to commemorate Sommer.
