Born on February 12, 1931 to the late Charlie & Rosa Lee Crosby in Brooks County, she had been a lifelong resident of this area. She graduated from Morven High School in the late 1940’s and then went to Georgia State Women’s College, which became Valdosta State College before her graduation.

She served as a Guidance Counselor for 18 years before her retirement in 1988 as the Director. She also loved traveling with her family, all over North America, including the 50 states and Europe as well. Entertaining family and friends was also a favorite pastime, but her true love was fishing. She loved fishing with a passion that no one in the family could match. Mrs. Wisenbaker was a member of Central Avenue Church of Christ.
