Christine Held Wallace
December 10, 2013
Hiram Eull "Wally" Wallace, 91, went to be with the Lord on December 27, 2018. This gifted and beloved gentleman was a shining example of a loving patriarch, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and cherished friend to so many. Wally leaves behind a legacy of selfless character, integrity, courage, fairness, generosity, and remarkable service to the community.
Precious and beloved Christine was the epitome of a loving homemaker, wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Extraordinarily bright and talented, she enjoyed reading, antiquing, cooking, and innumerable crafts and community activities. Christine preceded Wally in death just over five years ago and now Wally's often expressed longing to join Christine with the Lord has been graciously granted. They married December 30, 1949 while attending Purdue University and made many dear, life-long friends throughout the state during Wally's distinguished career with the Extension Service.
Left to cherish his memory are his sister Geneva Wallace; his brother-in-law Robert V. Held and wife Peggy; his nephew Lehman Wallace and wife Judy; his son Daniel S. Wallace and wife June; his son Richard A. Wallace; four grandchildren, Michelle Wallace McCabe (Kelly), Dr. Julia Wallace Harris (Dr. Eric), Melissa Wallace Willard (Pete), and Benjamin Wallace (Heather); he also leaves seven great-grandchildren, Ashley McCabe Bartlett (Jeff), K.J. and Kiernan McCabe, and Charlotte, Susanna, Elizabeth, and Katherine Harris. Messages of condolence may be sent to the family online at huberfuneralhome.net. Wally and Christine resided in numerous Indiana communities but most often in southern Indiana. Their wishes to be interred in Tell City, Indiana are being honored with a celebration of life interment memorial for both Wally and Christine on July 20, 2019 at the Greenwood Cemetery at CDT 11:00 AM followed immediately by a reception at the Patio restaurant from CDT 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM.
