Obituary of Althea WALLACE (nee Moore)
January 11, 1935 – Calgary, Alberta
February 13, 2021 – Rocky View County, Alberta
It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of our dear mother Althea Wallace on Saturday, February 13, 2021 at the age of 86 years.
Althea was born and raised west of Calgary. She married her beloved Ronald on June 18, 1953. They were deeply in love and cherished each other for fifty-eight years.
Althea spent thirty-five years as an RN, working most of her working years at the Bethany Care Centre in NW Calgary. Althea and Ronald farmed and raised their family in the Springbank area.
Althea was a strong, courageous, kind, compassionate and loving woman. She will be greatly missed by us all and all the different lives who have touched her life over the years in so many ways. Althea is finally free and joins our dear Dad in Heaven.
Althea is survived by her children, Terrill Shoults (Allan), Noel Wallace, and Donald Wallace (Teresa); seven grandchildren, Nathan, Steven, Christopher, Matthew, Alyssa, Kegan, and Dacey; and eight great-grandchildren, Tyler, Evie, Mya, Gaby, Thea, Ethan, Roland, and Oscar. She is also survived by her brother Norman Moore ( Ruth) of Innisfail. Althea was predeceased by her husband Ronald in October 2011.
Althea had a wonderful family of caregivers, Anita Vierguta, Roxanne Algadzue, Cindy Kam, and Cindy Jenzen. These gals gave so much of themselves and we are so grateful for all they have contributed and who were instrumental in helping Mom stay in her own home.
A private family service will be held. Condolences, memories and photos may be shared and viewed on Althea’s obituary at www.McInnisandHolloway.com.
