Mary Elizabeth Wheeler
It is with broken hearts that the family of Mary Elizabeth (Dingley) Wheeler announces her sudden passing at her home on March 26 at the age of 82.
She is survived by daughters, Pam Wheeler of Fredericton and Kim Stuart (Bob) of New Maryland; brothers, Rick (Linda) of Hanwell and Reg (Shirley) of Penniac; several nieces and nephews.
Mary was predeceased by her husband, Gilbert (Buddy) Wheeler; mother, Blanche (Endall) Dingley; brothers, Herbert (Herbie) and Kenny; a nephew as well as several aunts and uncles.
Following in her mother's footsteps Mary was a proud, strong woman who made many sacrifices for her family of whom she was very proud. She was the oldest of five children, and being the only girl, sometimes suffered at the hands of her brothers but loved them dearly.
Mary was a legal secretary for over 35 years until her retirement. For many years she was a Saturday shift captain at the Fredericton Community Kitchen and on the Boards of the Fredericton Community Kitchen and New Brunswick Association of Food Banks. In her younger years she enjoyed curling in the Business Girls section of the Fredericton Curling club. In retirement she enjoyed coffee and lunch dates with her fellow retirees as well as winter trips south with family.
A graveside service will be held at a later date.
Donations in Mary's memory can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or charity of the donor’s choice.
