Samantha Wisener

June 25, 1975 — December 8, 2020

Samantha Wisener, age 45, of Black Springs, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, December 8, 2020.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Sherman and Winnie Chapman; her brother-in-law, Michael Bretz and her grandmother-in-law, Minerva Nelson.

She was born on June 25, 1975, in El Centro, California. She was a 1993 graduate of Caddo Hills High School. On January 22, 1994, she was married to the true love of her life, Dallas Wisener. Samantha graduated Summa Cum Laude from National Park College in 2013, where she received her Associates of Science Degree in Nursing, was a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and also received the Florence Nightingale Excellence Award. She was a member of Mount Gilead Baptist Church and for most of her life she was also a part of Norman First Baptist Church.

Samantha fought like she lived, with every bit of stubbornness and determination imaginable. She was a warrior queen right up until the very end. Samantha was an inspiration to all who knew her through her faith, courage and perseverance. It goes without saying, if you knew Samantha at all, you knew her greatest joy in life was spending time with her family, who she loved with all her heart. We are all better people for having known her and loved her. Her family and friends take great comfort in knowing her pain and suffering are now over, but she will be greatly missed by all.

She is survived by her loving husband of nearly 27 years, Dallas Wisener; her son and daughter-in-law, Austin and Rachael Wisener; her daughter and son-in-law, Gracie and CJ Staggs; two grandchildren, Callie Wisener and Jackson Wisener; her parents, Ray and Mildred Moore, all of Black Springs; her brother, David Moore of Memphis; two sisters and one brother-in-law, Lisa and Joe Trygar of Perrin, Texas and Rachel Bretz of Hot Springs; her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Roy and Sue Wisener; her brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Michael and Josie Duggan, all of Black Springs; her sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Angie and Brent Turner of Kirby; numerous special nieces and nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, cousins, extended family members and a host of wonderful and loving friends.
