Betty Wise Obituary

Betty Eileen (Holland) Wise, a spirited and loving matriarch, passed away peacefully on September 7, 2023, at the age of 93. Born in Lynn, Indiana on April 15, 1930, Betty's life was marked by her dedication to her family and the land she nurtured.

Her loyal and unwavering spirit shone brightly through her work on the farm and in every stitch of her hand-sewn creations. Betty's love for her family was her pearl, her greatest treasure. Betty was a lifelong resident of Lynn, where she found joy in the simple pleasures of rural life. She enjoyed her time during the many years with Home-E. Her love for farming was only surpassed by her love for her family. She was a nurturing and loyal wife to her late husband, Duane Wise, whom she married on August 21, 1949, and a dedicated mother to her son Rick. In her garden, just as in her family, Betty cultivated a world of beauty, love, and resilience. She was an accomplished gardener and avid seamstress whose creations were a testament to her creativity and skill.

Betty is survived by her son Rick (Bernadette) Wise, her grandson Eric (Amber) Wise, her great-grandson Jeffery Wise, brother-in-law Paul Chenoweth, as well as several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Duane Wise, her parents, Ernest Holland and Lela (Moyer) Fudge, and sisters Rosmond, Kay, and Joyce.
