Singer Mary Wells, who in the 1960s had teen-agers snapping their fingers to "My Guy" and other tales of love lost and found, died Sunday after a long bout with cancer. She was 49.  Wells, who underwent surgery for cancer of the larynx in August 1990, died at the University of Southern California's Kenneth Norris Jr. Cancer Center, said her daughter, Stacy Womack. She had been hospitalized there for several months.
Along with Smokey Robinson, the Supremes, Temptations and Four Tops, Wells helped break down the era's musical segregation.
In 1961 through 1964, she hit the Top 10 in the pop charts with "The One Who Really Loves You," "You Beat Me to the Punch," "Two Lovers" and her signature "My Guy," all written or co-written by Robinson, a fellow Motown Records star.  "In 1964, Mary Wells was our big, big artist," said Lucy Gordy Wakefield, Motown's first sales chief. "I don't think there's any audience with an age of 30 through 50 that doesn't know the words to `My Guy.' "  When Wells was diagnosed with cancer, the two-pack-a-day cigarette smoker had no medical insurance and lost her modest home in Los Angeles when she couldn't pay rent.
The Washington, DC-based Rhythm and Blues Foundation raised more than $50,000 to pay for her medical bills. Diana Ross gave $15,000, Rod Stewart and Bruce Springsteen $10,000 each and the Temptations $5,000.  After the operation, Wells underwent chemotherapy. In June 1991, doctors found the cancer was spreading and she began an experimental drug regimen. She resumed chemotherapy late in 1991, said Steve Cohen, her manager for more than 13 years.  Wells married and divorced Cecil Womack, the brother of musician Bobby Womack. She is survived by four children, Cecil Womack Jr., Stacy Womack, Harry Womack and Sugar Womack, and by a brother, Fletcher Wells.

"Colonel Richard James (Womack), U.S. Army (Ret.), died the 13th of February, 1999, at age 70 after a long battle with lung cancer. The son of John D. &  Marie Womack, he was born on December 30, 1928 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Colonel Womack served 34 years in the U.S. Army from 1950-1984.

His career included intelligence and Defense Attache assignments, and contracting and procurement assignments in both Far Eastern and European countries.

His love for the Army was pure, true and absolute. He loved the military life with a passion and dedication that never wavered. He inspired the troops who served under him to reach outside themselves, to go beyond their own limitations, to achieve something greater than they had believed themselves capable of. His ability to motivate people and to get the job done earned him the admiration and respect of his co-workers and superiors. He is survived by his wife Julie, of Lopez Island; daughters, Tracy Haraldsen of Virginia, Mary Jenney and Amy Andrews, both of California; grandaughters, Elizabeth and Brenna Haraldsen of Virginia, Danielle Andrews, Alexandra and Samantha Jenney, all of California; sisters, Patricia Shelby, Jean Brown and Mary Sue Mitchell, all of Oklahoma, and a brother, Edward Womack of Oklahoma.

THE ADVANCE REPORTER;   27 January 1911

Mrs. Ruth Womack (nee Ruth Morris Meeks) passed away at the residence of her son, William Sherrill, six miles east of Waldron, after an illness of 6 years' duration, Jan.12, 1911, at 5 p.m. She was born in Crawford Co., Tenn. March 22nd, 1836. Came to Arkansas in Nov. 1883. Converted in early life, she joined the Methodist church and lived a consistent christian life until death. When she was in good health she was an active christian worker; holding prayer meetings and helping in other ways to advance her Lord's kingdom. She was twice married, first to Mr. Sherrill, to which union fourteen children were born, of whom six are now living-five boys and one girl. Her second marriage was to Mr. Larkin Womack.
Tolstoi, the Russian philosopher, paid one of the finest tributes to the wife and mother when he said, "Only the mother, before her death, can say to Him who sent her into this world and to Him who she has served by bearing and bringing up children, beloved by her more than herself-only she can peacefully say, 'Now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace.' "
While for years this good women was a great sufferer, now she rests in peace. It is a real privilege to die when it means a transition from the realm of such intense suffering to the realm of peace and rest.
She was laid to rest in Pilot Prarie cemetery Jan. 13, services by the writer. A good women has gone to be with the angels.  D.H Colquette.
