Betty Ann (Lucas) Wise, 84, widow of George Henry “Jack” Wise Jr., passed away at home on Monday, March 30th, 2020. She was born on January 23rd, 1936 in Sadieville, Kentucky, daughter of the late Shirley Lucas and Lorraine (Doan) Lucas. Betty is survived by her daughter, Kimberly West; two sons, Mark (Mary) Wise and Tony (Beth) Wise; seven grandchildren, Amanda (Matt) Holmes, Ellen West, Ann (Andrew Traub) West, Matthew (Katie) Wise, Mitchell (Gabriella Mallette, fiance’) Wise, Faith Wise and Grace Wise; three great-granddaughters, Maiya Holmes, Emma Holmes and Addison Wise; a great-grandson, Roan Traub, and another great-grandson on the way, Jack David Wise.

Betty Ann Wise has a piece of my heart. I am a true peer of Betty Ann -- born the same year and attended Kentucky Girls State with her in 1954. I came to Georgetown College the same year. I attended college here and Betty Ann was a star student at Transylvania University. Years later we played in the same tennis group. Others in the group were Mattie Jo Lucas and Jen Yancey. Betty Ann sang in the choir at our First Christian Church; she sang with all heart. We were together in Group 2 of Christian Women's Fellowship. I loved and love Betty Ann with all my heart. My heart goes out to Mark, Kim, and Tony.

She’ll Surely be missed in the community. May she now rest in Gods eternal peace where there is no more pain. Love and Prayers for you in this most difficult time. Don and Sharon Hawkins

Mark, Kim, Tony and all of the family, I am so sorry. Your Mom was one of a kind. She was full of life and laughter and whenever I saw her, she caught me up on the happenings of each of you and your families. I saw her in December at O'Charley's and she was out eating and celebrating Christmas with some of her friends. All of my family was there to celebrate one of my son-in-love's birthday. She stopped by our table and talked to every one of them. It made me feel great that she cared enough to stop and let me introduce all 19 of them. I've spent many years around the Wise family and I know that you all will carry on the traditions your Mom and Dad have left for you... I'm praying for God to comfort all of you... Mary Lou and family

Tony Wise and family,
Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers during this time of your loss. I am a classmate of Tony's and wanted to tell him that I loved Mrs. Wise dearly and the one thing I will never forget is her beautiful smile and wonderful personality. I pray that God comforts you all and remember that your mother is watching over you always.
