Dorie passed away Mar. 10, 2013 at the Fallon Medical Complex Long Term Care Center in Baker.
Dolores E. “Dorie” Wiseman was born June 4, 1926, a daughter of Otto and Harriet (Freeman) Hoenke in Baker. Dorie grew up on the family farm south of Plevna. She attended country school through the eighth grade, then high school in Plevna where she graduated as valedictorian of her class. Following high school, Dorie worked in Baker. She met Harold Wiseman and the two were married Jan. 19, 1947. Following their marriage, Dorie and Harold moved to Nashua where Harold was employed with the railroad. Eventually they returned to Baker where they made their home. After returning to Baker, Dorie worked as a tax accountant for Walt Ehman and later for Rowland Thomas & Company. In 1968, Dorie and Harold opened their home and hearts to three children, Susan, Brenda, and Otis. They provided a loving home and raised these children as their own. After Harold’s death on Mar. 22, 1989, Dorie continued to make Baker her home until 2006 when she entered the Long Term Care Center at Fallon Medical Complex.
Dorie was very active in the Hospital Pinkies group and was active in the American Legion Auxiliary. She was a faithful member of American Lutheran Church in Baker and enjoyed singing in the church choir. Dorie loved the Lord and enjoyed serving Him. She was a caring sister, friend, and in Susan’s own words, “Dorie was a loving mother”.
Dorie is survived by her three special children, Susan (Marty) Nelson of  Baker, Brenda Baese of Salt Lake City, Utah, and Otis (Mary) Kapps of Baker; her sister Gloria (Ralph) Duneman of Baker, brother Arnold “Bud” Hoenke of Baker, numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Otto and Harriet Hoenke; her husband, Harold Wiseman; and sister-in-law, LaVonne Hoenke.
