Deborah Ann Wallace


Deborah “Debbie” Ann Wallace was born on May 28, 1953, to DeForest Wallace and Harriet Wallace in Columbus, Ohio.

She peacefully departed this life on September 3, 2022, at Grant Hospital.

Debbie loved the Lord. This great love led her to wholeheartedly share herself with her family and friends.

During her years of employment, she was a loyal employee for the Federal Government at DSCC, formerly DCSC

and retired to be a caregiver for her ailing mother.

Her favorite leisure activity was traveling. She traveled the world and truly loved cruising.  She even turned her love

of travel into a part-time business and started her own travel agency, where she could share her love of travel with others.

Debbie was preceded in death by her parents, DeForest Wallace and Harriet Wallace. She was a great and loving Sister to Martha Wallace and Brenda (John) Logan Whiteside.

A loving Aunt to DeAnna Wallace-Williams of Columbus; a great aunt to Vincent Lee Williams, Tiffany Kay Williams and Christopher Charles Williams; and an involved aunt to her great-great nieces and nephews.

She also leaves behind special cousins Barbara Ballen and Theola Mann as well as a host of beloved friends and other relatives.
