A quote from Dr. Effie Jane Wheeler - “Please do not give a moments grief for me. I do not say a cold goodbye but rather a warm farewell till I see you again – in the blessed land where I may be allowed to draw aside a curtain when you enter, with a heart full of love for every individual of you.”

Arrangements have been entrusted to HOENING FUNERAL HOME 242 W. Tiffin Street, Fostoria, Ohio 44830.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Life Connection of Ohio or to the family c/o the funeral home.
