WHEATLEY, Frances Sue November 16, 1923 - April 28, 2013 Went to be with the Lord on April 28, 2013. A lifelong resident of Washington State, Frances Sue Wheatley was daughter to John C. and Helen E.

Frances graduated from West Valley High School, Spokane Valley, in 1942 and attended Whitworth College, Spokane. She worked as a bookkeeper for Seattle First National Bank, and as a switchboard operator for Standard Oil of California and Deaconess Hospital, all in Spokane. Frances had a love for animals, and enjoyed cooking, traveling, writing poetry, and ministering to others. She was a member of Berean Bible Church, Spokane Valley, for more than 25 years. Frances is survived by her husband, Steven T. Wheatley of Spokane Valley; her son, John C. Julian (Kathleen) of Spokane Valley; and grandchildren, John C.

When By Frances Sue Wheatley When my eyelids close in death Please don’t weep for me - For I’ll be home with my Precious Lord For all Eternity! God won’t take me home, you see Till all my tasks on earth are through Till my allotted years are spent And there’s no more for me to do. When god’s hand reaches down for me Please don’t weep for me - Because you see, I’m the lucky one For my Heavenly Father I will see! Be assured I will be happy In a most ecstatic way - So please don’t be filled with sadness But rejoice in God that day. Just remember how I’ve loved you How I’ve prayed and pleaded, too For the Lord to fill you fully With His Love and Grace so true! To my family, friends and all I love, I thank God for you every day - Please love the lord with all your heart And I’ll see you when you cross the way!
