Mary Ann Wallace

Mary Ann (Markun) Wallace, 89, passed through death to eternal life Thursday, November 9, 2017. Mary Ann lived much of her life in Des Moines, Iowa.  She was born on July 31, 1928 and married her life long dance partner, Jack Wallace, Sr., on July 16, 1949.

 

She is survived by her two sons: Jack K. Wallace (Marlys) of Overland Park, KS and Charles L. Wallace (Sherrie) of Pleasant Hill, IA.

 

Mary Ann enjoyed a long career at United Parcel Service. Her retirement years were spent enjoying life and sharing in the lives of her sons and their families.  Mary Ann was a beloved grandmother to three grandchildren: Michelle (Eric) Cross, Megan Wallace, and David (Carla) Rivas; and eight great-grandchildren: Jacob, Jackson, Jace, Luke, and Lincoln Cross, Bennet, Henry, and Violet Rivas.

 

Our mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother blessed our lives with immeasurable love, filled our stomachs with amazing food, and our hearts with treasured memories. She will forever live on in our hearts.

 

Visitation will begin at 1 p.m., Monday, at Merle Hay Funeral Home, with her funeral beginning at 2 p.m. Memorial contributions may be given to Courtyard Estates in Pleasant Hill.
