January 8, 1931 — January 6, 2019

Marjorie (Marge) Ann Collins Wheeler passed away January 6, 2019 surrounded by family.
Marge was born January 8, 1931 in Idaho Falls, Idaho to Raymond and Gladys Collins. She attended schools in Idaho Falls and graduated from Idaho Falls High School in 1949. On May 6, 1951 she married Calvin Richard (Dick) Wheeler at Trinity United Methodist Church in Idaho Falls. To this union four children were born; Sherry, Kathy, Rick, and Paul. Dick and Marge farmed in the Osgood and New Sweden areas for many years. Once they quit farming, Marge went to work as an administrative assistant for SAIC. She continued to work with them through the many changes in the firm and retired in 1995. While her health allowed it, Marge was actively involved with the United Methodist Women and Trinity United Methodist Church serving on various committees. She also loved to attend family reunions, whether it be the Wheeler Roundups or the Collins family reunions. Marge was often busy attending and supporting her grandkids in the activities they participated in. She always looked forward to spending time with her family during the holidays, camping trips and vacations. Marge is survived by her, children Sherry (Dan) Gray of Terreton, Kathy (Dean) Bennett of Rupert, and Rick (Lisa) Wheeler of Idaho Falls; a sister Alice Clovis of Boise, her grandchildren, Jessica (Dan) Davis, Justin (Sam) Bennett, Preston Wheeler and Garrett Wheeler; great grandchildren; Owen and Olivia Davis.
