Sara Nell was born August 21, 1934 in Laurens, South Carolina, the only daughter of the late Cliff Bishop and Nell Cogdill Bishop. She lived in Ware Shoals and Laurens when growing up, where she enjoyed teaching young children ballet and tap dancing. She graduated from Laurens High School in 1952 and Lander College in 1956.
She is survived by her husband of 59 years, G. Spence Wise, Jr.; three sons: George Spence Wise III (Linda) of Merritt Island, FL, R. Glenn Wise (Pam) of Lake Wylie, SC, and A. Fellers Wise (Lee) of Lexington, S.C; seven grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.
Sara Nell made friends easily and was a joy to be around. She was a loving Christian and an encouraging wife who helped her husband immensely. She moved around a lot during her married life but it never took very long after moving into a house for her to make it into a "home". She spent much of her married life raising her three sons, a labor of love, one in which she did an outstanding job.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Edisto Island United Methodist Church (Building Fund), P.O. Box 485, Edisto Island, SC 29438.
