Deborah Dean Wiseman of Arlington, was born November 12, 1952, the daughter
of the late Dell Dean and Betty (Stanfill) Jones, who survives her. She
was a devoted wife of 45 years to her husband, Dickie, and they raised three
rambunctious sons - Lang, Russell, and Matt. She passed on her athletic prowess to
her boys (she had a cannon for an arm out in centerfield in her younger days), as
well as her love of God and family. She was a true friend with a servant’s heart,
and she lived out her faith daily as an example to others. She was a community
leader who served as PTA president, team mom, Town planning commission member,
and caregiver for anyone in need. She was mama hen to the whole Wiseman clan and
she loved and adored her seven grandchildren - Luke, Avery, Sam, Hayes, Millie, Jones,
and Sarah Lang - spending countless hours making unforgettable memories with them.
She cheered (loudly!) at hundreds of ballgames, drove carloads of kids all over
the county, had a special heart for the sick and lonely, and always had a popsicle
ready for the neighborhood kids on her street she affectionately referred to as her
“street grandkids.” She fought a heroic battle against a cruel disease, ALS, that
ultimately took her away much too soon. Despite the cruel hand she was dealt, she
handled her decline with grace and dignity, remaining forever grateful for the
abundant life she enjoyed. She looked forward to joining her loved ones in heaven
there waiting for her - her dad; her sister, Donna; and her favorite grandmother,
Peggy Jo. In addition to her husband, mom, sons, and grandchildren, she is survived
by her sisters Kelley Clinton, Sherry Crook, and Holly Jones; her brother Harry
Jones; her daughters-in-law, Adina, Gilly, and Betsy; and countless other family and
Visitation will be from 1-3 p.m. at Sycamore View Church of Christ on
Saturday, November 22, followed by a Celebration of Life Service at 3 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials at www.ALStn.org to help
