Mary Jane Bise was born February 19, 1928 in Diggins, MO. to Arnold Edwin and Minnie Owings Semsch.  She was united in marriage to Lee Roy Bise on August 24, 1947.  She taught school for many years as a substitute teacher.  Mary Jane was a proud member of the First Baptist Church of Butler, and taught bible school for decades.  She was a member of the the Collector’s Club, and was an avid collector.  But over all, she had devoted herself to a life of service to others.

Mary Jane was preceded in death by her parents,  her husband Lee Bise in 1995, three brothers, and three sisters.  She is survived by her three sons, Eddie Bise of Belton, MO., Roger Bise and wife Cygnet of Fort Smith, AR., and Jeff Bise and wife Kelly of Derby, KS., ten grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren, a sister Eva Hall of Calhoun, MO., along with far too many friends to count.
