Obituary for Carol Wisner

Carol R. Wisner passed away on June 14, 2018, at Bethany Life in Story City, Iowa. A memorial service will be held 11:00 a.m. June 25, 2018 at Grand Avenue Baptist Church in Ames.

Carol was born March 6, 1942 in York, NE at the Lutheran Hospital to Peter and Madeline Klippenstein. She graduated from York High School in 1960 and Mounds Midway School of Nursing in St. Paul, MN in 1963. She worked as an RN until her retirement in 1995.

Carol married Robin J. Wisner on April 25, 1964 at Arbor Drive Baptist Church in York, NE. They made their home in North Platte, NE. Later they moved to Lincoln, NE where Carol worked at University of Nebraska Hospital, putting her hubby through college.

They moved to Iowa where they lived in Sac City, Elkader, Independence, Tama, Fort Dodge, and eventually Ames. During this time Carol continued her nursing career in several hospitals and nursing homes. Carol took great pride and love in her career as a nurse. They moved to Ames in 2012 where she lived until her death.

Carol loved her church families and had a close relationship with Jesus. She served as the Treasurer and Secretary at Northfield Church of Christ in Fort Dodge, IA for many years. After moving to Ames, she and Robin joined Grand Avenue Baptist Church. Wherever she lived, Carol’s close group of friends revolved around her church and work families.

Carol and Robin enjoyed their many years of retirement together traveling and seeing siblings. They enjoyed several trips to Mt. Hermon Christian Camp in California and made many memories with family and new friends. Most of all, Carol loved spending time with her family. Her warm hugs and sweet kisses will be greatly missed.

Carol is survived by her loving husband of 54 years, Robin, her daughter Donna (Brian) Haferbier of Ames, IA, her son Russ (Angela) Wisner of North Liberty, IA, her 5 grandchildren Michaela, Cody, and Faith Haferbier, Sage and Selena Wisner, and one great-grandson James Haferbier, as well as her brothers Bill (Sharon) Klippenstein and George (Cynthia) Klippenstein, her sister-in-law Barb Lehmkuhler, and Linda (Marvin) Swedlund, and several nieces and nephews.

Carol was preceded in death by her parents, her brother Dave Klippenstein, her sister Helen Klippenstein, her father-in-law and mother-in-law Russ and Gladys Wisner, her brothers-in-law Roger Wisner and Dave Lehmkuhler.
