MARLOW — Corrine Wheeler, age 93, of Marlow, formerly of Mangum, passed away Friday afternoon, April 5, 2013, at Duncan Regional Hospital.

Mrs. Wheeler was born in Mangum, Oklahoma on May 30, 1919, to Mitchell and Earnest (Smith) Maxfield. Attending Mangum Schools all twelve years, Corrine graduated with the class of 1937, and continued her education at Mangum Junior College, earning her associate degree. On July 6, 1941, Corrine married the love of her life, Warren Wheeler, in Mangum, and they spent the next forty-four wonderful years together before his death on November 11, 1985. After Warren’s retirement from the U.S. Postal Service, they toured many states and traveled to several different locations in their RV along with their snowbird friends. After his death, she made three trips to Europe, enjoying each one. In 1987, Corrine moved south of Waurika to be near her family and in August 2012, she moved to Marlow where she lived until her death. An accomplished seamstress, Corrine sewed for the public, and also made her daughters’ dresses and dresses for her girls’ dolls.

Corrine loved her family and enjoyed spending time with each of them and she will be greatly missed.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
