On Friday, February 3, 2012, Rebecca Jane Wisdom (nee Coltrane) beloved wife of the late Lloyd Wisdom, passed away and went to be with the Lord peacefully.
She was a loving mother to her daughter Debbie Heeney (husband John), and her son Scott Hoy. She was a doting grandmother (Grandma B) to her five grandchildren, Zachary John Heeney 23, MacKenzie Coltrane Heeney 19, Emily Kathryn Hoy 17, Grace Rebecca Hoy 15, and Moses Scott Hoy 14. One of her favorite things in life was enjoying time with her family and grandkids, and they will cherish those memories forever.
Born to Ralph and Ada Coltrane on December 23rd, 1942 in Ottawa, KS, Becky attended Ottawa schools and graduated in 1960. She then attended Evangel Bible College in Springfield, MO.
Becky was an active member of the Clinton Parkway Assembly of God where she was a tireless volunteer. She helped spearhead the ‘backpack giveaway program’ for local school children and was delighted in giving back to her community. She enjoyed working with many international students who attend KU, helping them acclimate to life abroad.
Becky belonged to two quilting clubs and enjoyed the friendships developed while making quilts for friends and family. Her beautiful smile, wonderful sense of humor, compassion for others and infectious laugh will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
