Mitzi Bishop Wheeless was born August 5th, 1937, in McKinney, TX, and passed away while peacefully sleeping October 30th 2012. She was the beloved daughter of Warnie and Geraldine Bishop, devoted wife of James Vincent Wheeless who preceded her in death in 2000, and loving mother and grandmother to daughter Sabra Alline Wheeless, son Darin Bishop Wheeless and wife Christine, grandchildren Sam, Kate and Ella.

Mitzi graduated from Baylor University and received her Master's in education from Prairie View A&M. Among her many passions, teaching led the way. She spent her over 30 year career at Travis Elementary in LCISD.

Mitzi was an avid traveler, always ready to go at a moment's notice, be it a weekend trip with new friends or a Summer abroad with older ones. She was given the moniker by a young cousin 20 years ago as the "Helping Lady" because she was always willing to lend a hand for any reason.

Later in life, Mitzi was passionate in supporting the Fort Bend Archaeological Society and the Fort Bend Museum. She was the one in the striped overalls digging in the dirt, sifting and explaining to children at Texian Market Days about the history of who and what came before us. Always a teacher!

She lived life to the fullest and never had a bad word to say about anyone. She will be missed by all who know and loved her.

A Memorial Service and Visitation will be held 2 PM Friday, November 2, 2012, at Garmany & Carden Funeral Directors Chapel, 1201 Fourth Street, Rosenberg, TX 77471.

Services are under the direction of Garmany & Carden Funeral Directors, 1201 Fourth Street, Rosenberg, TX 77471 (281)342-4671.
