Obituaries » Elizabeth Ann Wheat

Elizabeth Ann Wheat, age 83, of Warrenton, VA passed peacefully on Thursday, August 23rd, 2018 at the Adler Hospice House in Aldie, VA. She was born in Johnson City, NY on January 5th, 1935, daughter of the late Ralph & Elizabeth Moshier.

Elizabeth Ann attended Oneonta State Teachers College at Oneonta, NY. She later worked for General Aniline and Film in Binghamton, NY until 1969 when she became a full-time homemaker.

She moved to Warrenton, VA in 1973 when her husband was transferred by IBM to Manassas. She was active at the Warrenton United Methodist Church where she served on the Board of Trustees and was in charge of the 1988 church member directory.

She loved to travel the country with her husband in their motor home and visited many states. A 4,500-mile trip to Alaska in 1996 was the highlight of their travels. They were members of the RV group Bounders of America, the square dance group Dancing Nomads, and several other camping clubs.

She and her husband became winter residents for many years at Indian Creek Resort in Fort Myers Beach, FL, where they enjoyed many activities together, including square dancing and bicycling all over Sanibel Island. Elizabeth Ann volunteered at the resort and was named volunteer of the year in 2013. She joined a group of residents that made teddy bears and she was also very fond of the game Mah Jongg, which she played weekly with a group of women at her home and at the resort hall.

Elizabeth Ann is survived by her husband, Morris Wheat of Warrenton, VA; son, Stephen Wheat & his wife, Carina of Remington, VA; two grandchildren, Ashton & Owen Wheat; and four nieces, Susan Bolles, Jill Egan, Kelley Miller, Erin Leonardi and several grand nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Richard Moshier and his wife, Alberta.

The family will receive friends at Moser Funeral Home, 233 Broadview Ave., Warrenton, VA from 6 to 8 pm on Wednesday, August 29th. A funeral service will be held on Thursday, August 30th, at 11 am, at Warrenton United Methodist Church, followed by a brief reception and then burial at Culpeper National Cemetery.

Contributions may be made to Warrenton United Methodist Church, 341 Church Street, Warrenton, VA 20186.
