Peggy Wheeler Obituary

     Peggy Ann Wheeler, age 80, of Wilmington and formerly of Atkinson passed gently from her earthly life Thursday, February 8, 2024 at Lower Cape Fear LifeCare surrounded with love and family singing.

Not to be forgotten is her dear Pomeranian, Mia, who was constantly at Peggy’s side.

     Peggy was a lady of quiet faith who loved her family more than words can express. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great great grandmother, sister, aunt and friend.
