Pauline Fyffe Wheeler, born June 17, 1924, a daughter and one of 12 children, of the late James and Bessie Fyffe of Johnson County, left this temporary life and all its pain and cares to cross over the great divide Friday, Aug. 4, 2017.
The Lord in an awesome display of His glorious grace proved His faithfulness to His promised Presence at the passing of His saints, when He opened the exterior patio door of her beautiful hospice room wide enough for One to enter into the room from the outside and then slowly closed it back just as she drew her last breath. Oh what blessed assurance He has given us! We rejoice at the joy that was set before her, as Jesus, Himself met her and took her to be reunited with the love of her life, her late husband of more than 65 years, Howard James Wheeler.
She was also preceded also in death by 10 siblings; and one great-great-grandchild, Connor Jude Hughes.
Pauline is survived by one sister, Irene Kitchen of London, Ohio; two daughters, Barbara (Lawrence) Fultz and Kathy (David) Crace; two grandchildren, Lori (Duane) Hughes and Brent (Briana) Fultz; five great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren, all of Boyd County; and countless other brothers and sisters in Christ that knew and loved her.
Pauline was born again by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ in her late teens and since that time, has faithfully lived a simple, yet quiet and contented life.
Formerly a member of Cordell Freewill Baptist Church in Blaine and later attending Westwood Freewill Baptist Church, Pauline was a woman of deep faith, abiding joy and Biblical principles. She lived her faith every moment of every day before her husband, children, grandchildren and all those who were blessed to know her. Pauline's life leaves a legacy that epitomizes what it looks like to fulfill the call of God to be a Godly wife and mother.
Though monuments may never be built in her honor or great works of art named in her memory, the contribution her simple life of faith has made to this earth will endure and be blessed for generations and the investment in His Kingdom will be rewarded richly in eternity. As sure as He showed Himself faithful today, He will return again one day for those she left behind. Her greatest prayer, deepest desire, and final hope would be that you too would open your heart in faith to the Lord Jesus Christ. A life well lived is no "simple" life at all. God will see to that.
