Mr. Wheeler, Emily and family,
Our sincere condolences at this time of loss. I have fond childhood memories of your mom Marguerite. I remember most her wonderful humour and being taken on tours of the backyard garden in the summer.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

I enjoyed a marvelous childhood growing up in Victoria Village, and a big part of that was the privilege of having Mrs. Marguerite Wheeler and her family as my neighbors. Marguerite Wheeler, or "Mrs. Wheeler", as I referred to her, was an absolutely wonderful person. She was exceptionally kind and generous, and she also had a remarkable sense of humor. She always made me and everyone smile. I am so grateful for having had the opportunity to know Marguerite Wheeler. Indeed, she was a blessing to all who knew her, and may God Bless her always!

Dear Norrie and Family:

Please know we are with you in spirit, though geographical distances separate us at this time, from giving each of you warm Island hugs of love and comfort at this difficult time.
We recall many Wheeler-Fife parties in our youth when Marguerite was the life of those parties. May happy times with this dear lady bring you comfort and peace in the times ahead.
Love, Gay, Jim and Family.

Growing up beside the family and being friends with Emily I have many fond memories of Marguerite. She was a kind and wonderful lady. There were many times where I was invited to stay for dinner or invited to the cottage. She was always gracious and loving. I felt as though she was a second mother. Norm, Emily, Evan and family I am very sorry for your loss. I hope you can find comfort in the memories. She will be missed by all who knew her. Sincerely Marianne (Santamaria) Cossidente
