***** New Service Information Below *****
A celebration of Carol’s life will be on July 26, 3:30-5:00 pm at the Carnegie Building in Lawrence, East Gallery Room.
Carol Jane Wheeler daughter of A.M. and Janet Wheeler who preceded her into the next life, passed away at her home on July 5, 2014 at 10:35 p.m.
She was born in Borger, TX on a very cold November 9, 1950.
She is survived by her two sisters, Susan and Beth (Ray), and her brother Tom (Betsy), two nieces, Andrea (Eric) and Sarah (Erik); and a grandniece and grandnephew, Sky and David; and her beloved companion dog Maggie.
A memorial gathering will be held at a later date.
The family suggests memorial contributions in her name to the Lawrence Humane Society and may be sent in care of the mortuary.
Dear Susan and family,
We were so very sorry to hear that Carol has died. What a terrible loss! We did not know her well, but remember her as a very nice person who loved to have fun and had a great laugh–and who loved her dog. Our thoughts are with you.
With sincere sympathy,
Barb and Dick
My heart aches for Carol, who was one of the most supportive and loveliest women I’ve ever met – not to mention one of the best dog moms! I have such fond memories of her bringing Maggie to see me at work, JUST to see me, so I could call “Maggie!” and have that lovely ball of fluff come running towards me. We kept in touch after my 2000 mile move, and I still have a picture of Maggie framed in my office. My heart goes out to her family, and to little Maggie – who carries a piece of Carol with her. I always joked that if Carol ever needed to find a new home for Maggie, I would have a dog immediately, and that still holds true. All of my love.
