Louise S. Wisner

January 16, 2018

Louise S. Wisner, 93, formerly of Watertown, passed away Tuesday evening, January 16, 2018, at Wesley Healthcare Community, Saratoga Springs.

Calling hours will be held at Cummings Funeral Service, Inc., Watertown on Tuesday, January 23, from 10:30AM - 12:30PM. The funeral service will follow at 1:00 PM at the First Presbyterian Church with Rev. Fred G. Garry, pastor, presiding. Burial will be in the spring in Brookside Cemetery.

Louise was born in Watertown on November 12, 1924, daughter of Nathaniel and Winifred Clark Smith. She was a graduate of Watertown High School and LaSalle Junior College in Massachusetts. She worked for the Veterans Administration, then was an administrative assistant for the Watertown City School District until her retirement.

She was a member of First Presbyterian Church and was a member of its choir and bell choir for many years. Louise adored all of her dogs, but her rescued greyhounds, Cleo and Sheba, held a special place in her heart. She enjoyed music, bridge and sewing, and had owned her own sewing business, specializing in draperies and slip covers.

Louise is survived by her three children, Debra Wisner, Saratoga Springs, Scott J. Wisner and wife, Amy, Syracuse, and Steven Wisner and wife, Kathy, Oswego; seven grandchildren, Amber, Steven, Ben, Mike, Kai, Libby, and Taryn; seven great grandchildren; and three nieces, Natalie Scholl, Ithaca, Karen Scholl, Dewitt, and Andrea Scholl and husband, Earl Wingrove, NC. She was predeceased by her husband, James Wisner, and her sister, Alice Scholl.

Donations in her name may be made to First Presbyterian Church, 403 Washington St., Watertown, NY 13601 or the greyhound rescue organization of your choice. Online condolences to Louise's family should be posted at www.cummingsfuneral.com

I feel so bad that I didnt learn of her passing until now and thats due to coming across her sons address whilst cleaning out my desk and I had thought I lost it,Louise was such an endearing soul,she was kind and so friendly,my husband Jim would take care of her driveway during the winter,last time I saw her was to let her know Sheba was in a bad way and that it was time for her to get her wings,Sheba was brought to her whilst in the hospital to say goodbye and Sheba's photo is on the wall at the Animal Doctors on State Street,I will forever remember Louise,her house was bought by a friendly family here on Gotham Street,I'll always miss Louise.
