Christine W. Wheeler, age 84, went to be with her Lord on Friday, October 4, 2019, at the Lower Cape Fear Hospice and Life Care Center in Wilmington, N.C.
Born on December 7, 1934, in Danville, Va., she was a daughter of the late John Fosco Williams and Rosa Hollandsworth Williams. She was employed with Dan River Mills at the Executive Center and a member of New Life Community Church. Ms. Wheeler enjoyed walking, working in her yard and reading.
