Georgiana Faye (Blair) Wiseman, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and, above all, teacher, passed away Wednesday, April 11, 2012. She was born August 2, 1931 in St. Louis, MO to Olive C. and Claude Corbet Blair. After attending college at Ouachita Baptist University, she completed her teaching degree in Speech and Drama at Washington University in St. Louis. She was licensed to teach in both Texas and Arkansas.
She spent her young adult life in Texarkana, Arkansas where she graduated from high school and met and married John R. Wiseman of Texarkana, Texas. They relocated to central Arkansas, ultimately making their home of over 50 years in the city of North Little Rock. She taught classes at the Little Rock Air Force Base, Levy Elementary School, Ridgeroad Junior High School, and Northeast Senior High School. Her teaching career began in 1952 and spanned over 45 years. She will be remembered fondly by the legions of students that she taught to read, write, drive, act, and experience life without boundaries.
Georgiana was a member of Park Hill Baptist Church for over 50 years. After retirement, she and John dabbled in antiques and, most recently, she was a dedicated volunteer with the Patrick Henry Hays Senior Citizens Center.
Mrs. Wiseman was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 54 years, John Robert Wiseman. She is survived by her three children, Richard Charles Wiseman (wife Ginny) of Fayetteville, Shirley Ann Askew (husband C. E.) of Monticello and Linda Sue Sanders (husband Shawn Patterson) of North Little Rock, and three grandchildren, Erin Cassinelli of Little Rock, Ross Wiseman of Fayetteville, and Rebekah Askew of Monticello.
A private family graveside service will be held at Hillcrest Memorial Park in Texarkana, Texas. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials be made in her honor to: Patrick Henry Hays Senior Citizens Center, 401 West Pershing, North Little Rock, AR 72116; North Little Rock Public Education Foundation, P. O. Box 15303, North Little Rock, AR 72231; or the Donald W. Reynolds Institute on Aging, UAMS, 4301 West Markham, Slot 748, Little Rock, AR 72205.
