Gary and Nila are the proud parents of Gary Leo Wise (Hayden, Lincoln), and Kristina Wise (Makayla, Natasha, Kendra). Nila was an exceptionally honest and caring woman who deeply loved her husband, children, and family. Nila loved to crochet and enjoyed serving others and using her talents by crocheting baby blankets and clothes for her ward family. She also loved sewing, making jewelry, and she recently enjoyed making her own laundry soap and fabric softener. Nila spent every waking moment with the love of her life, Gary.
