Aimee Assendrup Wisecaver died peacefully surrounded by family on Thursday, March 25, 2021. Born to Carmen and Bill Assendrup, Aimee joined older sister, Angie and brother, Lincoln. She was the apple of everyone's eye, always had a jovial smile, sparkle in her eye, and learned quickly from others. She spent a great deal of time with her grandparents in her younger years which created tight bonds and lots of stories as she had many adventures with them.
Aimee developed the name Twinkle Toes at a young age due to her love of musicals, dancing and smashing a few of her grandpa’s toes with her hard soled shoes. She met many friends through dancing, but it wasn’t until soccer that she found her calling. She had joined a co-ed soccer team when she was nine and was the only girl. Many years later she volunteered her father to coach an all-girls team. Together Aimee and Bill built an exceptional team that developed lifelong friendships. All that knew her loved Aimee, she was witty, compassionate, and a dedicated friend and when she laughed wholeheartedly everyone around her laughed too.
Aimee graduated from Buhl High School in 2000 and Washington State University with a degree in insurance risk management in 2004. She made relationships with many clients all over the state and lasting friendships wherever she worked. Aimee worked almost 10 years with Moreton & Co. out of their Boise office and would often be found participating in the office book clubs and potlucks or throwing her Star Wars themed bridal shower (one of her favorites). She was a dedicated employee with passion for insurance, helping others and committed to her employer.
Aimee was active in Toast Masters for a number of years and developed a knack for public speaking. She was excited to create table topics and speaking topics when her assigned weeks came up and had many stories and pointers to share with friends and family.
In 2009 Aimee ran into Joe Wisecaver in Boise at Tour de Fat. After a loooooong time of dating, Joe and Aimee tied the knot in January 2016. Together they went to many concerts and listened to lots of music, enjoyed Estevez-Festivez, dressing up for Halloween, and watching movies, especially outside on their patio movie screen. Her quirky sense of humor, smarts, willingness to learn and grow made for fun times, even with the eye roll when Joe wanted to watch something she had no interest in. She loved finding the perfect gift and always found something that entertained the nephews for long periods of time. Team AssenCaver made an amazing duo that supplied support and encouragement to family and friends but most important had the smile and laugh that we appreciate so much.
Aimee loved traveling with Joe, especially to tropical locations. They had taken several cruises, snorkeled with sea turtles in Mexico and went on ghost tours in New Orleans. She was planning their next vacation to Cancun at the time of her death.
She is survived by her husband, Joe Wisecaver; and their special pets, Tiberious the dog, and Fonzie the cat; parents, Carmen and Bill Assendrup; sister, Angie (Kevin) Sharp; and nephew, Kelton; her brother, Lincoln (Kristen) Assendrup; and nephews, Sam and Jake; father-in-law, Joe Wisecaver; sister-in-law, Angela (Erik) Allred; niece, Paris; and nephews, Gage and Jude; and many aunts, uncles and cousins. Aimee was preceded in death by grandparents, Ralph and Evelyn Assendrup, and Louie and Lila Baty; and mother-in-law, Sandra Wisecaver.
A private graveside service will be held at the West End Cemetery, Buhl. The service will be livestreamed on the Farmer Funeral Chapel Facebook page as well as at Gather: https://my.gather.app/remember/aimee-assendrup.
If you can’t join the service, call a friend you’ve lost contact with, take time for family, or check in with co-workers that might need a sounding board. A celebration of her life will be held close to her 40th birthday around July 28, 2021.
