Christine Wiser, 92, formerly of Casey County, KY

She was born September 13, 1926, in Liberty, Casey County, KY. She was the daughter of the late Lonzie & Ollie Belle Whited. She passed away on Saturday March 3, 2018, at the age of 92 years, five months, and 18 days.

Her parents were tenant farmers and much of her childhood was spent helping her father with the horses and in the fields. As a child, she walked gravel roads to one-room school houses at Brush Creek and Good Hope.

On January 28, 1946 she married the love of her life Jimmy Wiser who preceded her in death. Surviving are
  • Two children: DeAnna and the late Aubrey Lee Wesley of Liberty, KY; and DeAngelo and Nancy Wiser of Nicholasville, KY;

  • A granddaughter: LeDia and Aaron Espinoza of Parker, CO.

  • A great grandson: Colter Espinoza of Parker, CO.
She spent her professional life of 20 years as a nurse's aid at Kentucky State Hospital in Danville, KY and Oakwood in Somerset, KY. Her distinguished service was honored with several awards. In 1983, after the passing of her husband she retired from government service.

Inspired by her childhood of farming with her dad, she returned to those roots when she bought a 60-acre farm, finished and landscaped a partially built house and promptly started raising cattle, growing hay, harvesting and canning award winning vegetables in her garden, producing beautiful flowers and quilting prize-winning quilts and braided rugs. She did all this with her beloved dog Tiny by her side. She also provided private care to elderly sisters who had no family. When time allowed, she relaxed and enjoyed traveling throughout the United States with her many friends in the Homemaker's Society.

Those who knew her would describe Christine as independent, having a spirit of assertiveness, a tireless worker, someone they could count on and who stood up for what's right. Above all, she had a willingness and faith to trust in God in all decisions.

She was a member of the Poplar Grove Baptist Church, Red Hat Society, Liberty Hospital Board, Homemaker's Club, Friends of the Library, Election Day Volunteer and the Casey County Pork Producers.

Besides her parents and spouse she was preceded in death by One Brother: Evert Whited and One Sister: Bessie Fair.

Send condolences to the family of Christine Wiser.

Bartle Funeral Home, 142 KY Hwy 49, Liberty, KY, is in charge of arrangements.
