Ma00rjorie Wheeler Marjorie Elizabeth Wheeler, 85, passed away Saturday at Hilltop Lodge in Beloit. Marjorie was born Nov. 16, 1926 in a cabin that rested in the shad- ows of the "Flat Tops," part of the Rocky Mountains near Toponas, Colo. She was the first of three children born to Mary and Kenneth Farrington. The first week of her life she stayed in the bread warming box above the wood burning cook stove. Marjorie was raised a ranch girl, moving cattle by horse- back and feeding in the winter months with a team drawn hay sled. For recre- ation, she explored the mountains by horseback, read books, snow skied and gardened. Marjorie met Orell Wheeler, 16 years her senior, at a country dance. Orell was the only guy with a car. so he could take all the girls to the dances. They were married July 1, 1949. To this union they each brought a child from previous marriages. Orells' daughter, Dolores, was twelve years old and Marjorie had a two year old daughter, Penny. Soon after their wed- ding, two nieces, 13 and 14 years old, came to live with them. Marjorie was 22 years old, newly married, and al- ready raising a toddler and three teen- agers. So began her life long passion of caring for children. Marjorie and Orell had two daugh- ters, Deborah and Jacque. When Jacque was six years old, they became a li- censed foster group home for mostly teenagers. They took in children from 1961 to 2002, when Marjorie was 76 yeas old and Orell had already gone to be with the Lord. Out of the many numerous children they raised, includ- ing nieces, nephews and grandchil- dren, they adopted three children, Terrance, Dan and Patricia. Marjorie lived on a working cattle ranch with Orell in "the Steamboat Springs area of Colorado. In 1978. they moved to a small place outside of Jewell, to live closer to the oldest daugh- ter and her children. The foster chil- dren came with them from Colorado, and they continued to take in children from Kansas. Marjorie lived in the- country and loved all animals, but es- pecially cats and dogs. For extra money in her later years, she raised registered cats and dogs having up to 50 breeding cats at one time. After Orell passed away, Marjorie continued to lead Bible studies and worked as the librarian for a while until her health failed in 2006. Marjorie is preceded in death by a daughter, Dolores. She is survived by six children, 21 grandchildren, 25 great- grandchildren, and nine great-great-grandchildren.
