  1. Marjorie Kelley Wheelis was a wonderful lady and a dear friend. My husband Roger and I knew Marjorie for many years. We worked together at the Riverboat at Stone Mountain Park for years. My daughter, Joanne was friends as well with the family and went to elementary and high school together with some of her children. I will miss you friend. Rest in peace. God bless you and yours always.

  2. I remember Majorie “Maggie” being a spit fire! When she wanted something done, she wanted it done pronto! I remember
    times visiting my Mom Mary and Maggie while they were at work and hearing her telling her staff what she wanted them to do.
    She was an awesome lady, very sweet, kind and loving but you knew if she said something she mean’t it and you had better get on whatever your task was to get it done. She loved her family and friends and would help people when they needed help. We love you Maggie and we will miss you so much! God blessed you so much and you were a blessing to all who knew you. R.I.P. <3

  3. Maggie Wheelis was the best great grandmother someone could ask for. You could always count on her to put a smile on your face while keeping a smile on hers. Grandma you will be missed truly by Kim, Jaxson, as well as myself. Love you
    R.I.P <3

  4. Charlene, Teresa, June & Family, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. May God give you peace and grace in this difficult time.
