Judith Lynn Wallace, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and daycare provider passed away peacefully on April 28, 2023, at the age of 70, surrounded by her family and loved ones.
Judy was born on November 10th, 1952, to Leon and Judy Farley in Midwest City, Oklahoma. She married her loving husband, Larry Wallace, on November 9th, 1973, and they spent 39 wonderful years together until Larry's passing.
Judy worked at Snappy Snack Vending until she was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Despite this setback, she refused to let her illness define her and instead channeled her energy into her true passion: caring for children. She started her own in-home daycare and became a second mother to multiple generations of families' children for more than 20 years. Judy's kindness, patience, and love for children earned her a special place in the hearts of all the families she worked with.
Judy's love and selflessness were not limited to children. She was also known for her affection towards her doggies, who brought her immense joy and kept her young. She loved watching her kids and grandchildren play sports, and she never missed an opportunity to brag about their accomplishments.
Above all, Judy will be remembered for her selflessness and her unwavering devotion to her family and friends. She always put others' needs before her own and never hesitated to lend a helping hand or a listening ear to anyone in need. Her legacy of love, kindness, and compassion will continue to inspire all who knew her.
Judy is survived by her son Rick and his wife Lynn Fowler, her daughter Misty Wallace, her grandchildren Darian Boyd, Cameron Fowler, Dakota Fowler and his wife Bayleigh Fowler, Hunter Boyd, Carson Boyd, Katelyn Fowler, and Ashlyn DeShae and great-grandson Deakon Nash. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Larry Wallace, her father Leon Farley, her mother Judy Farley, her brother Scooter Farley, her sister Karen Farley, and her brother Donnie Farley.
Judy will be dearly missed by all who knew her. May she rest in peace, knowing that her legacy of love and kindness will live on through her family and everyone whose lives she touched.
