WRENS, Ga. - Twila Ann Hadden Wheeler, 50, loving wife of Dennis James Wheeler, went home to be with her Lord Friday morning, May 31, 2013 from her residence. Funeral services will be held at 2:00PM Monday afternoon, June 3, 2013 in the James Funeral Home Chapel with Dr. Stan Littleton officiating. Interment will follow in Wrens Memorial Gardens Cemetery. One of two daughters born to Peggy Jane Hood Hadden and William Lester Hadden, Twila was a lifelong resident of Wrens, graduating from Wrens High School and obtaining an Associate degree in Marketing from Athens Technical School. She worked in the family businesses-Hadden's IGA and Peggy's Restaurant-and was a member of Wrens United Methodist Church where she faithfully served her Lord. Since the age of 16, Twila had suffered multiple medical difficulties, including 8 back and neck surgeries, COPD, etc; however, she never complained and no one would ever guess that the smile she always wore hid such great physical pain. She focused on the positive and kept her great sense of humor at all times. Twila had an adventuresome spirit and loved to travel, especially going on cruises. She was a people person, always willing to help others in any way she could and putting others needs before her own-a true servant. Twila loved her family with all her heart; even though death has left a void that no one can heal, her love has left memories no one can steal. Twila is preceded in death by her grandparents, R.C. and Dorethea Holley Hood and Josh and Janie McTier Hadden. Other survivors include her sister, Melanie McDonald (Russel); 3 step-children, Suzanne Bradford, Joey Wheeler (Felicia) and Kevin Akrdige (Brandi); 4 grandchildren, Hunter and Landen Bradford, and Kerigan and Cole Akridge; many cousins and friends. Pallbearers will be Kevin Akridge, Lester Ellis, Charles McGahee, Greg Rooks, Mike Snipes, Barrow Walden and Joey Wheeler. The family will receive friends at James Funeral Home Sunday evening, June 2, 2013 from 5:00-8:00PM. The family requests that memorial contributions be made to Wrens UMC Building Fund, 202 Russell St, Wrens GA 30833. Visit www.JamesFHWrens.com to post condolences and photos.
