Zac Brown Band tomorrow night at the Roanoke Civic Center.
They were born sisters and worked as Roman Catholic sisters for decades before spending their last years living in the same upstate New York residence for nuns.
Sister Jean Marie Wheeler was 98 and Sister Elaine Wheeler was 96. How close were they? Well, the siblings had a nightly ritual of enjoying some sweets before going to sleep in separate rooms just down the hall from one another at Saint Louise House in the Albany suburb of Menands, where they had lived for the past eight years.
They were among the seven Wheeler girls raised in the Bronx section of New York City after their family moved from Chicago, and they were the last of five siblings who became Catholic nuns.
The five nuns vacationed together each summer at a small cottage beside a pond on the Daughters of Charity property outside Albany, where they spent their time sewing, swimming and reading.
A friend said, "They did everything together and if you met one Wheeler sister, you knew all the Wheeler sisters."
Each night before going to bed at Saint Louise House, the two sisters met at 8 p.m. for milk and cookies or a few chocolates. When Sister Jean Marie began having difficulty swallowing solid food, she was told to give up her nightly treats...but Sister Elaine wouldn't hear of it so she began sneaking them to her.
Sister Jean and Sister Elaine died last week - only a day apart. Though it's a sad ending, it's a happy story of sisterly love that's filled with treasured memories.
