Wanda Louise (Miesner) Wischmeier, 61, entered eternal life, surrounded by her family on June 18, 2014, after a 26 year battle with cancer.
The Guest Book is expired.
She was a wonderful example of dignity, hope and unwavering faith as she struggled with this disease for so many years.
Wanda was born on May 29, 1953, in Cole Camp, Missouri, to Glenn and Elaine (Borchers) Miesner, who survive.
After graduating from Cole Camp High School, she went on to graduate from Concordia University, Seward, Nebraska, with a degree in elementary education. In 1974, she moved to Brownstown after receiving a call to teach at Lutheran Central School.
Wanda taught for 29 years, 26 of which were at Lutheran Central School. She found great fulfillment in seeing her students grow physically, cognitively, but most important, spiritually. She found no greater joy than teaching little children about Jesus.
On March 19, 1977, Wanda married Dennis Lee Wischmeier, who survives. Together they had two daughters, Kristin (Matthew) Comer, Westfield, Indiana, and Julie (Kyle) Warren, Brownstown.
Wanda was a dedicated wife, loving mother and adoring grandmother to her five precious grandchildren: Claire Addison Coomer, Emerson Grace Warren, Marley Kate Warren, Carsyn Isabella Comer and Landry Graham Warren.
In addition to her parents, husband and grandchildren, Wanda is survived by her two sisters Karen (Fred) Oelrichs, Cole Camp, and Glenna (Ted) Sanlis, Livermore, California; two sisters-in-law Debbie (Wayne) Goecker, Clarinda, Iowa and Brenda Bobb, Crothersville; brother-in-law Brian (Julie) Wischmeier and several aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her brother Robert Miesner, father-in-law and mother-in-law Noble and Melba Wischmeier and brother-in-law Danny Bobb.
