Matthew Wise Obituary

God saw that the road was getting rough and, the hills were hard to climb. He gently closed those eyes and whispered, "Peace be Thine." The worn-out frame has found rest at last.

On March 21, 2024, Matthew Wise transitioned to his heavenly home at Leakesville Rehab and Rehabilitation Center Leakesville, MS. He was the seventh child born to the late Robert, Sr., and Ruby McCray Wise on November 20, 1951, in Mound Bayou, MS. Matthew was preceded in death by his mother, Ruby Wise, his father, Robert Wise, Sr., his brother, Joseph Wise, and three sisters, Louise Vence, Lutichia W. Hickman, and Charlotte Smith.

Matthew was a member of the Pineville Missionary Baptist Church. He was a graduate of John F. Kennedy High School. He received a Bachelor of Science from Mississippi Valley State University with a degree in Physical Education. He was previously employed with Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, MS. Later, he went to work for Scotch Plywood as a boiler operator, from which he retired.

He worked intensively in real estate, and he was a skilled electrician and carpenter.

Matthew leaves precious memories to a loving and devoted wife, Mrs. Annie Pearl Wise. One son, Adrian Durstan Wise of Hawaiian Gardens, CA; three daughters Chassity (Arras) Avery Waynesboro, MS, Brandi Wise Hattiesburg, MS and Yolanda Lofton of Orlando, FL. Three brothers, Robert Wise, Jr. of Ocean Springs, MS, Douglas Wise of Chicago, IL and Mark (Patricia) Wise of Jackson, MS. One aunt Ida McCray of Lambert, MS. One uncle James McCray, Chicago, IL. Two granddaughters, Bralyn and Brady and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.
