Marcella White-Wheeler

We are saddened by the passing of our mother, Marcella White-Wheeler, in the loving care of her daughter and son-in-law, Diane and Dave Bailey in Minden, Nevada for 12 years and in Sparks for two years.

Mom was raised on a farm in Dalton, Nebraska, the eldest of nine children of Henry and Stella Henke. She passed the knowledge she acquired from being a farm girl for gardening, sewing, and canning on to her children.

She was a loving wife and mother. Married to Wayne White (1945-1981) and Wilmer Wheeler (1982-1993). An active volunteer, she started as a Cub Scout leader and later in life volunteered at Mended Hearts, St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank, and American Cancer Society Discover Store. Marcella was a regular at every senior center in every community she lived.

Marcella is survived by her son, Jim White (Patricia), Medford, Oregon; daughter, Diane Bailey (Dave) Sparks, Nev.; grandchildren, Michael White, Las Vegas, Nev.; Christina Shaver, Reno, Nev.; Nichole Bailey-Lundahl, Sparks, Nev.; and Stewart Bailey, Tigard, Ore.; one sister; and three brothers. She was preceded in death by one sister and three brothers.
