Kathleen Ethel Wise of Forest, Virginia, went home to be with the Lord in her home, surrounded by her family, on January 8, 2022.

Born on August 27, 1945, in Point Pleasant, New Jersey, Kathleen was the daughter of the late Walter Leroy Morris and Nancy Ann Mehler Morris.
Kathleen’s life was a love song, a duet sung with her husband, Joseph John Wise III; the melody written for their lives by God; music that was the foundation of who she was.
“Praise God.”
Kathleen Wise loved Jesus and lived each day for the glory of God. Her life was an act of worship. Hers is a legacy of love.
She found joy in everyday moments; she nurtured. She grew things… loving to garden in lives and in nature.
She loved her husband, her family, her friends, her church and most of all her God and Savior Jesus Christ.

She is survived by her husband of 55 years,
her 11 children and their spouses, her 21 grandchildren, her 5 great grandchildren, her brother, sister-in-law, nieces and nephews.

The Celebration of Life for beloved wife, Kathleen Wise, will be at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 29, 2022 at
Love & Truth Community Church.
A Celebration Luncheon will immediately follow.

I was in Life Group with Kathy, at the Swartz home, for a year or so. Kathy was so full of life and love for the Word of God. She was always sweet and loving. I’m so saddened by this loss.

We are so sorry for your loss, may you have peace in knowing she is in the beautiful garden of Heaven. I spent many Sunday mornings listening to her speak of the Lord or rocking babies with her in the nursery. She definitely touched the lives of so many people spreading God’s love.

Reading through these messages, I see we all have the same wonderful things to say about Grandma Wise. My heart aches for Grandpa Wise and the entire family. This was so unexpected, but maybe that’s because I naively hope all the wonderful people will be here as long as I live. We know that’s not how it works. Each moment is a gift, and Grandma Wise gifted everyone who came into her orbit. I always felt welcomed by her and the entire family. They took me in; I’m so blessed to have had the time with her I did. Grandma, you live on in our hearts; your memory is a blessing. Missing you dearly, and looking forward to when I see you again reunited with all your family and loved ones.
