God looked around the garden and found an empty place. He then looked upon the earth and saw her beautiful face. Our father called the roll and Neddie Mae Lesane answered his call on Friday, November 6, 2020. She was the sixth child born to the late Junious and Celia James Wells on August 20, 1938 in Lee County. She was educated in the Lee County Public Schools where she earned several awards and certificates. Neddie worked for 50 years at Sumter Laundry and Cleaners.

Church in St. Charles, where she worked tirelessly in many capacities: Missionary Society, Stewardess Board No. 4, Jubilee Choir and Pastor’s Aid. Neddie was married to Carlise Lesane, Sr. and to this union God blessed them with six children in which two proceeded her in death, Larry Lesane and Donnelle Bradley.
