Death Date: May 13, 2019

Sandra “Sandy” Wise, 50 of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma passed from this life on Monday, May 13, 2019 at her residence with her family by her side.  She was born March 6, 1969 in Tulsa, Oklahoma to her mother, Jennifer Kathleen Ford Emerson and Virgil “Gary” Lewis and was later adopted by her father Jerold Keith Emerson.

Sandy was raised in Broken Arrow where she grew up with her two best friends Tammy Hayes and John Nuendorf. She graduated from Broken Arrow High School in 1987. She had four children, each born three years apart between the years of 1988-1997.  She went on to peruse a major in English and received an Associate’s degree in Fine Arts in 2000 from Tulsa Community College.  She enjoyed working in the moving business as a Packer for Divine Packing. Sandy attended Living Truth Church with her family and friends. She enjoyed reading romance novels and crocheting blankets and other accessories for her loved ones. If anyone knew Sandy, they knew her love for Dr.Pepper, as she always had a glass in her hand, no matter the time of day. Sandy was a natural caregiver and was happy to take in anyone in need. She had many children in and out of her home that she loved and cared for through out the years. We will forever love and miss our Momma, Mimi, and Aunt Sandy.

  2. Love you Sissy, Gina

    Written by: Gina Emerson Barnett

    My Sissy, we stayed up late giggling, whispering, sneaking in a late night show on our little black and white TV’s we got for Christmas, we laughed, I held your hand while you cried after a bad day, you read books to me, and saved me from the alligators under my bed, we played office, and dressed up as everything from clowns to nuns, you helped me watch out the window for Santa Claus on the way home from Grandma Ford’s house on Christmas Eve.
    I watched you build a beautiful family, I saw you suffer in pain, and laugh so hard you’d almost pee your pants.
    Seeing you and Jerrica play after your heart surgery gave me hope and warm fuzzy feelings. You’re my sissy, you’ll always be my sissy. Love you…Gina

  3. Team Shelby

    Sandy was an amazing Mom /Friend I’ve known her for several years and there was never a moment when if you needed her she wouldn’t drop everything to help you. You will be missed by many but NEVER forgotten fly high and soar with the angels. We love you from Team Shelby

  4. I will always remember Sandy looking after Gina and myself when we were kids. The many times she had to put up with us singing in the backseat as she gave us rides to the skating rink . You will always be my sister. RIP until we meet again.

    May your family have peace knowing you are in God”s Glory.

  5. Sandy had an amazing always giving heart. Of the years we worked together at Divine Packing the one thing I knew about Sandy was how much she loved her family. She will forever be your Guardian Angel. Rest in Peace my friend. Love you always. God Blessed us all when he gave us memories of Sandy.
