Betty Lou Wallace was born Sept. 28, 1926 to Louis and Bessie Beckner in Sayre, Okla. She passed away June 20, 2018 at the age of 91. Betty was one of six siblings raised in Cashion, Okla.: Helen Lovell, Lowell Eugene (Butch), Wanda Jolene (Jo), Opal Marie (Peggy) and Zelpha Lorene.
Betty married John Thomas Wallace (Jack) on March 13, 1943 and immediately joined him in a military career that took them all over the country, and in fact, the world. After a lifetime of moves, the Wallaces settled in Cashion, Okla. where Betty enjoyed many years contributing to the town and living on their acreage. Later years and failing health found her in the St. Ann's community where she enjoyed the activities and music and the many precious friends and caretakers. Betty and Jack raised three girls: Barbara Ann (Tom) Bennett, Debora Lynn (Terry) Zajic, and Christine Diane (Joe) Fine. These children brought seven grandchildren to the family: Kimberly Kay (David) Byrge, Tyler Wallace (Teresa) Bennett, Jennifer Lee (Tyler) Trent, Alycia Dawn Zajic, Bryan Eric Zajic, Derek Thomas (Amy) Fine and Aaron Wallace Fine. Also seven great-grandchildren: Kayla and Lindsey Byrge, Seth, Gracie and Molly Bennett, Noah Trent and Elijah Fine.
