Obituary

Marian Wheelock died at home on Thursday, May 2, 2019. She was born in Temple, Texas to James Truman Bragg and Ellen Jackson Bragg on April 14, 1929. She and her sister, Eleanor were beautiful girls whom the family affectionately referred to as “Zsa” Zsa” and “Jackie O”.
Marian married John N. Wheelock after attending the University of Texas where she was a member of ZTA sorority. John dearly loved Marian until his death in 1980.
Marian is preceded in death by her husband, John N. Wheelock, Jr.; her son, Tad Wheelock and his wife Lillian Wheelock.
She is survived by her sister Eleanor Parker. Also, she is survived by her daughter Ellen Willis and her husband, Ty; grandchildren; John Wheelock and his wife Camille, Mark Wheelock and his wife Brenda, Brooke Gunder and her husband Robert, Matt Willis and his wife, Julie, Tyler Willis and his fiancé’ Kathleen Hanschern, Amy Willis and her husband Matt Wernecke and 18 beautiful great grandchildren.
Marian was a fabulous matriarch to this family and loved to entertain. We all remember the fabulous parties she threw at Cedar Creek Lake. We all still enjoy all of our favorite recipes that she passed down to us.
Marian kept in shape for many years by swimming laps from pier to pier and later at the YMCA. In addition to swimming, she learned to love hunting. She and John spent many hours bird hunting and they also took a hunting trip to Africa which they both fell in love with.
Marian was a devoted Christian and has been a long-standing member of St. John’s Episcopal Church. She also served on the ministries, Child Evangelism and Food for Fitness.
The family would like to thank her wonderful caretakers. They took great care of her and loved her so well. Thanks, from the bottom of our hearts to Linda Coleman, Juanita Harris, Cora Jefferson, Angela Rhynes and Marilyn Warren.
The family would like to express our appreciation to Dot Burns who has loved Marian like a sister and served this family as secretary and “go to” person for the last 48 years. We could not have asked for a more loving and loyal friend.
Visitation with the family will be held on Friday, May 3, 2019 from 5:00 to 6:00 PM at Corley Funeral Home. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at 10:00 AM at Corley Funeral Home with Father Edward Monk officiating. A private burial will follow at Oakwood Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions to St. John’s Episcopal Church, Child Evangelism Fellowship or the charity of your choice.

My condolences to the Wheelock families. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Marian. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.
