DAVIDSVILLE — WISE – T. Louise, 96, Davidsville, formerly of St. Michael, went to be with her Lord and Savior May 9, 2013, at Laurel View Village. Born Feb. 23, 1917, in Johnstown, daughter of Lewis and Anna (Oldham) Lehman. Preceded in death by parents; husband, James A. Wise, who died Sept. 1, 1998; and brother, Lewis J. “Buck” Lehman. Survived by daughters, Beverly Ann, widow of John B. Harrington, Johnstown; Linda L., wife of J. William Ashworth, Wind Gap; Susan Lee, wife of Lynn Jennings, Salix; Constance R., wife of James Solich, Spring Grove; and Barbara J., wife of James Doyka, Sidman; 16 grandchildren; 30 great-grandchildren; and six great-great-grandchildren; also special friend, Hope Blair, Windber. Louise was a graduate of Adams Township High School, Class of 1935. In her younger years, she worked for the WPA and the U.S. Post Office, St. Michael. Along with her husband, Louise owned and operated Wise’s News Agency in St. Michael from 1955 to 1977. We all have our own special memories of the woman God blessed our family with. She had a quiet gentleness, a caring and nurturing nature, with a wonderful sense of humor. Her encouragement and support was given freely without reservation, as was discipline when needed. She took pride in the generations of family that are here because of her life and celebrated each and every one of us. Friends received from 2 to 8 p.m. Sunday and from 11 a.m. until time of funeral service at noon Monday at Charles O. Dimond Funeral Home Inc., South Fork, by the Rev. Wes Yoder. Interment, Forest Lawn Cemetery, Johnstown. Special thank you to Dr. Swansiger, the Rev. Wes Yoder and all the staff at Laurel View Village. (www.dimondfuneralhome.com)
