Resident of Danville
Grand mama was born in Gilroy, CA to George W. Mary Teeters. She lived most of her childhood on the family farm in Hollister with her parents and older brothers Daniel, Vernon, and Wayne. She was happily married to John R. Wheeler from 1942 until his death in 1978. Marie worked for the US Gov for 17 years, and christened the liberty ship, General H.B. Freeman in 1944.
Family was always important to Marie and she supported them anyway she could. She was an avid reader, loved to cook, enjoyed crocheting, and traveled extensively.
Marie is survived by her children J. David Wheeler of Newberg OR. and Diana Wilson of Danville, her grand children Justin Wheeler, Troy Wheeler, Sheena Wheeler, Michele Slater, Gregg Wilson, and Coty McDowell, great granddaughter Riley Marie Wheeler, and nephew George Teeters.
Funeral service will be held on Sep 17 at 1:00 pm, at the Old St. Raymond Church, 6600 Donlon Way, Dublin. Internment at Gavilan Hills Memorial Park in Gilroy. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Am Cancer Soc, or the Am Heart Asso.
