The message below was sent out to all of Barbaras friends.
Dear friends of Barbara Wheeler,
It is with a sad heart that I have to write this message. Barbara Wheeler passed away early Friday morning. Her sisters from Florida were able to come to Albuquerque Thursday and were able to talk with her Thursday evening. Several people from Holy Cross, Barbara's church, came to visit, knowing that Barbara was nearing the end of her life and true to form; Barbara kept the room laughing and joking the whole time. She had not been able to eat since the pervious Sunday because of the breathing machine she was on. When she asked to have the machine removed she amazed everyone by eating a whole Subway sandwich and of course a large diet Pepsi!
Barbara's sisters are not able to stay for a memorial service but Barbara's Holy Cross family will celebrate her life and the gift it was to alll of us on Saturday, February 26th at 3p.m at Holy Cross Lutheran Church, (6901 Wyoming Blvd NE, Albuquerque, New Mexico. 505-821-4676) with a memorial service and reception. The family has asked that in stead of flowers, donations be made to Holy Cross in her name.
If you have any questions or need more information about anything, feel free to contact me.
With God's Everlasting Love and Grace,
