Kimberli Wise Obituary

Kimberli “Kim” Kaye Wise, 56, loving mother of Travis Wise and daughter of Judie Karpuleon, entered into eternal rest on Wednesday, Oct. 25, 2023.  Kim was born in Lexington to Judie Davis Karpuleon and the late Benjamin Karpuleon, Sr. on Dec. 28, 1966.  She loved people, was a former employee of Hospice, and attended the Reality Church. She enjoyed arts and crafts especially painting ceramics. Kim was delighted to watch her family members when they played sports and was abundantly fond of her dogs Peanut, Marley, and Roxie. In addition to her Mother, son Travis, and his fiancée Courtney, she will be fondly remembered by her granddaughter McKinlee Brianne Wise and future grandsons Noah and Liam Cooper, and brother Benjamin “Benny” Karpuleon Jr., as well as special friends Dorothy Friend and Jeri Pruett and numerous extended family members and friends. Kim was preceded in death by a great nephew Creed Michael Karpuleon and maternal grandparents June and Dorothy Davis. Her Funeral Remembrance Service will be held 1:00 PM Tuesday, Oct. 31, at Hager & Cundiff Funeral Home with Jim Davis and Pastor Chris Norman officiating. Following the service she will be laid to rest in Maple Grove Cemetery.  Honoring her as pallbearers will be Benny Karpuleon, Jimmy Davis, Jason Price, Lucas Karpuleon, Dan Hager, and Billy Hessler. The family will greet friends beginning at 5:00 PM and ending at 8:00 PM on Monday, Oct 30, at the funeral home.  At Kim’s request, the family suggests you make memorial contributions to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or to a Humane Society instead of flowers.  “If there ever comes a day where we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.”  Hager & Cundiff values nothing more than the trust and loyalty given to us to care for Kim and her family.
