Tribute & Message From The Family

Dorothy Magdalene Allen Wallace passed peacefully away Sunday morning, April 3rd, 2016 at the age of 89. She missed her husband so very much and although we will miss her terribly, she is happy and whole again. She was born December 12th, 1926 to Venie Jane and Lewie Vernon Allen. She married Jerrel Lee Wallace Sr. on December 6th, 1947. Although Jerrel supported the family by working at the International Shoe Company, Dorothy contributed immensely as a seamstress and gardener while motivating 5 heathen children to become hard working adults with the quickest house shoe in the west (and east and north and south). She was preceded in death by both of her parents, sisters Louise, Wanda, and Patricia and brothers Lewie (Junior), and Maurice. She is survived by her five children: Jerrel Wallace, Jr. and wife Carol of Austin, Texas, Lewie Wallace and wife Beverly Ann of West Lafayette, Indiana, Beverly Kaye Reynolds of Little Rock, Vicki Shafer and husband Stephen of Searcy, and Robert Wallace and wife Cindy of Searcy. She will be missed by her grandchildren, Jeremy, Nicole, Jared, Matt, Samantha, Sarah, Catherine, Brandon, Michael and Brett, as well as 18 great-grandchildren, the youngest being Bruce Alan Wallace.
Memorials may be made to Mt. Hebron Baptist Church building fund.
Visitation will be Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Powell Funeral Home of Searcy. Funeral services will be Friday at 10:00 a.m. at Mt. Hebron Baptist Church. Arrangements by Powell Funeral Home of Searcy.

Robert and family,
Sorry to hear about your mom. No doubt heaven gained another Angel. I know she will be missed dearly by you and the entire family, but she is reunited with your dad and they are rejoicing together. I pray that God give you the comfort and peace during this time. If you need anything let me know!!

Mrs. Dorothy did a lot of sewing for me.
When my dad died, she made throws out of his shirts for us.
I always loved visiting with her.
Sending love to her family.
