Jennie Shack Wells

February 2, 1947 — July 30, 2019

Jennie (Shack) Wells (72) of Evansville, Indiana went home to be with the Lord on July 30, 2019. Viola Varn Shack, her given name at birth, was the daughter of Mary Brady Shack and Edward Shack. She was born on February 2, 1947 in Boyle, Mississippi. She attended school at Lincoln High and Bosse High schools. She accepted Christ at an early age at Nazarene Missionary Baptist Church where she was an usher, Sunday school teacher, and sang in the choir. She was an amazing cook, especially her chess pies and meatloaf. Her favorite hobby was bingo with her sister, Charlene and cousin, Corrine Dodd. She loved to the fullest and gave everything she had when she could. She was a hard, dedicated worker, retiring from Red Lobster after 40 years of service in Evansville and Atlanta Georgia. She was the eldest of eight children.
She is preceded in death by her fathers: Edward Shack, Sr. and Charles Dunbar; and her mother, Mary Dunbar; siblings: Willie Shack, Tyrone Dunbar, Jean Moore, and Tina Dunbar. Left to cherish her memory are daughters: Tamara Flowers Ealum (Danny) and Dina Flowers; sons: Anthony Flowers, Jr. (Sonya) and Steven Wells; brothers: Joseph Dunbar (Anthoneia), Edward Shack, Jr.; sisters: Charlene King, and Pamela Buggs (Tommy); 9 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren and a host of nieces and nephews, cousins, and friends.
