Published in the Ludowici News, Dec 5, 1952. Elinor Wheeler Loses Battle for Life. The long battle for life ended Sunday night for Miss Elinor Wheeler, who was injured in an automobile accident on May 28, when enroute to Camp Stewart post hospital, where she was employed. For more than seven months she had been hospitalized at the Leaphart Hospital, Jesup, entirely paralyzed from her neck down. During those long months, racked by pain and the prospect of a future home none too bright, the 34 year old woman had become for many the shining symbol of courage. She never lost that courage and with it went her charm and cheeriness of manner that endeared her to all with whom she came in contact. She was the daughter of the late G. E. Wheeler and of Mrs. Wheeler of Ludowici. In addition to her mother, she is survived by two brothers; George E. Wheeler of Ludowici, and Emmett D. Wheeler of Memphis, TN, and two nieces. Funeral services were held Tuesday at 2 p.m., at the First Baptist Church in Ludowici conducted by Rev. C. L. Goss, pastor of the Methodist Church. Burial was in the Elim Cemetery with Rhinehart Funeral Home in charge of arrangements. Pallbearers were Harley Freeman, L. H. Smith, Ewell Swindell, Earl Floyd, Harris Howard and Wheeler Hall.
