The Elsie, Carroll and Willie Wheeler Hospice Support Care, Inc. Fund
At 98 years old, Miss Elsie Wheeler was the last of three siblings who had no heirs. As she prepared her will, she sought a way to memorialize her two brothers, Carroll and Willie. Her attorney, professional advisor Bill Kinnamon recalled, “Miss Wheeler wanted to support five local charities through her estate. I felt that two of the charities – Rappahannock Agency on Aging and Hospice Support Care – would be best served by establishing separate funds with the Community Foundation. In doing so, she created a lasting legacy for her family in naming the funds after them and will help both organizations achieve their charitable missions now and in the future.” The Elsie, Carroll and Willie Wheeler Hospice Support Care, Inc. Fund is designated to provide ongoing operational support for this nonprofit organization’s mission to provide non-medical support, without charge, to those experiencing the impact of a life altering or terminal illness and bereavement services for children, teens, and adults.
