St. Paul’s was the first Christian preschool in Westport and one of the first Westport preschools to achieve national accreditation. Early accreditation was also achieved at King of Glory before other Christian preschools in Williamsburg.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by a son, Michael Wheatall of Anchorage, Alaska; two daughters, Natalie Welsh of East Granby and Suzanne Casey of Mechanicsville, Va., a brother, David Alexy of Michigan; eight grandchildren; a nephew and five nieces.

A service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 30, at King of Glory, 4897 Longhill Road, Williamsburg.
