Dorothy L. Wells

June 2, 1932 – April 9, 2021

Dorothy L. Wells passed away peacefully, surrounded by family members on April 9, 2021. She was born in Stockton on June 2, 1932 to Emmett E. Littleton and Miriam L. Littleton (Platek). A devoted mother, friend, and community volunteer, she worked as a social worker for the elderly, a teacher’s aide at Sierra Vista, as well as a braille aide for children at Victory School. Dorothy volunteered for many years as a certified Library of Congress braille transcriber and many hours at the Friends of the Library and the Stockton Civic Theatre. She was a master gardener, avid reader, and met regularly with her circle of friends (Sewing Club) for over 60 years. She is preceded in death by her husband (Gordon K. Wells) of 63 years. Dorothy is survived by her son Brian (Nina Washburne), daughters Licia Wells (Paul Signorelli) and Hilary Wells. Due to COVID-19, there will be an outdoor service at the gravesite on April 30, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. at Park View Cemetery in Manteca. To honor Dorothy’s life and community-giving spirit, please consider a small donation to an Alzheimer’s or dementia foundation or a favorite charity of your choice.
