Sylvia Ann Van Eaton Wallace
Sylvia Ann Wallace was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Sylvia and Charles Van Eaton. The youngest of four children, Sylvia spent her childhood in Oklahoma and attended the University of Oklahoma where she met and married Don Lee Wallace. They moved to Louisiana with children David and Cindy in tow; Diane and Sally were born in Lake Charles, LA. Raising four children was our mother’s mission in life. Her greatest joy, and greatest gift, was nurturing her children, her eleven grandchildren, and eleven great grandchildren. Her selfless spirit was evident in her pride and devotion to her family.
A celebration of her life will be held on Friday July 6, 2012 at 11:00 AM at Englewood United Methodist Church Doan Chapel.
In honor of her lifelong devotion to children everywhere, in lieu of flowers, donations to Manasota SOLVE (manasotasolve.org), Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF.org) or to any organization that serves and protects children would be appreciated.
