Kathyrn Elizabeth Wheeling, 79


On Wednesday, March 31, 2021, Kathyrn Wheeling (McEwan), a loving wife, mother of two, grandmother of five, and great-grandmother, passed away at the age of 79. She was born on Nov. 8, 1941.

On Feb. 17, 1962, she married John Wheeling and together they raised two children, Ragan and John.

Kathyrn was a loving grandmother, most weekends you would see her packing up the 5th wheel for many of her grandchildren’s athletics or school events, a faithful Detroit Tiger fan and a fierce euchre player. She will be most remembered for her sharp, quick wit and kind heart. When Kathyrn wasn’t spending time with her family, you could find her watching the Detroit Tigers, Nascar or out tending to her raspberries in the garden.

Kathyrn was blessed with a large and loving family. She is survived by her husband of 59 years, John Wheeling Sr.; her two children, Ragan Sommerhalder (Wheeling) and her husband Steven; John Wheeling Jr. and his wife Sandy; her five grandchildren, Mackenzie Sommerhalder, Marley Ward (Sommerhalder), Caleb Ward and her great-granddaughter Harper Ward, Siobhan Wheeling, Mariah Brown (Sommerhalder) and Mitchell Brown, and Matthew Sommerhalder. She is survived by several siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews.

She will be deeply missed by all of her family and those who knew her.

A celebration of Kathyrn’s Life will be Tuesday, April 6, 2021 at 3 p.m., with family receiving friends one hour prior to the service, all at Braman Mortuary (72 St. Chapel)
