Platte City, MO – Colleen Jeanette Sager Wise, 74, Platte City, MO (formerly of Stanberry and Lathrop, MO) passed away on March 23, 2024, surrounded by loved ones.
Colleen arrived on August 28, 1949, to loving parents Vernie Chester and Margie Ella (Sego) Sager.  Even as a young child and teen, Colleen’s kind-hearted nature was apparent to all; known to give what she could, including the literal shoes off her feet to help someone in need. Colleen, a proud mama, raised her family (including her beloved dogs) in Lathrop, MO. She loved her small-town home, just about as much as she loved traveling to see both new places and familiar faces.  With a growing family of grandkids (and now great grandkids), Colleen was able to meet someone who made her heart complete and married Michael Wise on June 3rd, 2001. Their home was lively, joyous and open to anyone, especially those beloved grandbabies. Her zest for life will live on through those that loved her.  Colleen’s parents and sister, Peggy Henggeler, were waiting to welcome her home. Colleen is survived by her husband, Michael, sons, John Preston Shanks, Michael Shannon Shanks, Christopher Caselman; sisters, Verna Joice Brown, Sharon Sue Mercer; brother, Vern Chester Sager “Bud”; seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Memorial Services will be held at 3:00 p.m. Saturday, April 13 at Roberson Funeral Home, Stanberry, MO. The family will receive friends from 1:00-3:00 p.m. Saturday at the funeral home.
