Obituary for Roberta Mae Wise

Roberta Wise, age 82, passed away peacefully on September 10, 2019 in Woodward, Oklahoma. Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m. Friday, September 13, 2019 at the Billings Funeral Home Chapel with Reverend Nathan Twyman officiating. Burial will follow in Mooreland Cemetery, where the ashes of her husband, Francis, will also be interred. Arrangement were made under the direction of Billings Funeral Home.

Roberta Mae (Reneau) Wise was the third born child to Russel and Mary (Cook) Reneau in Oakwood, Oklahoma. The family lived around Oakwood until Roberta's senior year when the family moved and she graduated as valedictorian from Lambert High School in 1955. She then moved to Woodward to work at the Quality Potato Chip Co. She met and married Francis Wise on March 25, 1956 in Mooreland, OK and they made their home in Woodward.

The couple was blessed by three sons, Richard, Randall and Jon. These boys kept her busy with their many adventures and mishaps. Because she was the only gal in a household of guys, she had the opportunity to watch countless Western and military movies. She enjoyed camping and fishing each year at American Horse Lake where she cut up chicken and fried it over the campfire. She was an avid Dallas Cowboy fan and loved Thunder basketball. She was employed at Trego's Westwear, Fruit of the Loom factory, Gibsons and Homeland Grocery.

In December of 2015 Francis passed away and she moved in with Richard and Brenda due to her health. She enjoyed watching TV, going on drives and supervising in the gardens. She enjoyed being outside. In June 2018 she moved to Grace Living Center where everyone enjoyed her easy going nature and her ready smile. She continued gardening in the nursing home courtyard with flowers, tomatoes and peppers. She helped Brenda pull a lot of weeds!

She was a faithful member of the First Baptist Church in Woodward and attended regularly until her health declined. Her greatest desire was that her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren would come to know Jesus as their personal Savior.

She was preceded in death by her husband, her parents, her sister, Evelyn Foust, an infant brother, and grandson, Sean Henson.

She is survived by her three sons, Richard and Brenda, Randy and Shirley and Jon Wise, grandchildren, Brion Wise, Cheryl Bennett, Scott and Amy Wise, Jordan Wise and great grandchildren Gabriel Wise, Anna Wise, Cameron VanLandingham, Zoie and Bryson Rea, C.J. Bennett and a special nephew, Ernie Wise, plus a host of other family and friends.
