Anna S. Wheaton

posted by T.J. Woodward.

Anna S. (Harris) Wheaton, 66, of Batavia passed away on the morning of March 21, 2022 at her home with her family by her side. She was born on July 21, 1955 in Batavia, the daughter of the late Lawrence and Shirley (Conway) Harris. In addition to her parents, Anna is also predeceased by her son in law; Reynold Hewitt-Anderson; brother in law Robert Gormley.

Anna was a hard working woman who loved her family. She obtained her GED and her LPN License and worked as a nurse in several area nursing homes until injuries forced her to stop nursing. She then went back to school to become a truck driver and traveled the highways and byways of America with her husband Charles. When a shoulder injury forced her off the road, she went back to nursing, working in a doctor’s office until her health finally sidelined her.

She spent a lot of her time with her children and grandchildren entertaining them with movies, Nerf gun wars, games and most importantly, her love. She was a passionate player of Mexican Dominos. Anna treated winning or losing with the same verve.

Anna is survived by her husband of 21 years; Charles Wheaton; children Amy (Jeremy) Szulewski, Melissa Anderson and Christopher Anderson-Hewitt; stepsons Ricki (Kerry) Wheaton and Thomas (Amanda) Wheaton; brothers Roddy (Merrie) Harris, Richard (Lee) Harris; sisters Robin (Patrick) Krebs, Sandy Gormley; along with 12 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces, nephews and too many cousins to count that will also sorely miss her.

There will be no prior calling hours or Services per her wishes. A memorial gathering will be held at a later date.
