Obituary for Wilma Jean Whitener

Wilma Jean Whitener, 82, died Tuesday. What a joyful day! Can you hear God's heavenly choir. Our Mother's voice premiered in heaven January 13, 2015. Fellow choir members include the voice of Logan Whitener, her husband of 62 years. Mom dons her choir robe with her parents, John and Pearl Cox, along with her brothers and sisters who preceded her. What a lovely addition to sing everlasting songs of Love and Praise. Our Mother was born at home in West Irvine on November 21, 1932. She was a homemaker and Mother to two typical boys, Gary and David. We drove her hair to gray prematurely from constant reminders of "starving children in China", along with pleas to remember to put the toilet seat down. Contributing to her gray hair are her four grandchildren, Logan Whitener, Ashley McNeal, and McKenzie and Roman Whitener. Also left behind are her sister, Effie, who grayed without assistance from us, and her daughters-in-law, Cathy Whitener and Cindy Cheek. From her new home, Mom becomes guardian angel in waiting for her great granddaughter, Maddelynn Rene McNeal, to be born later this week. Our family would like to extend heartfelt thanks to the support and nursing staff at Westminster Village for their professional and loving care of our Mother. Better care could not be found, even by kin. There will be a celebration of her life held at Beanblossom-Cesar Funeral Home in Corydon from 1:00 - 5:00 p.m. Friday, January 16, 2015, with her funeral service to follow at 5:00 p.m.. For her church family who she deeply loved and for those who loved and knew her, please come and celebrate her life of service to others. A second viewing will be held at Lewis Funeral Home in Irvine, Kentucky from 12:00 - 3:00 p.m. Sunday, January 18, 2015, with burial to immediately follow in the West Irvine Cemetery.
