Beth M. Wallace
Beth M. Wallace, 67, passed away on Tuesday, November 7th at her home in Bellingham. Cancer took her body, but our precious memories endure and she will reunite with her loved ones in Heaven. Beth was born in Burlington to Robert and Doris Campbell and was raised in Sedro-Woolley.
After dental hygiene school at Idaho State, she married Jerry Wallace whom she met in high school. She has a son, Mark Wallace of Bellingham, and a daughter and son-in-law, Megan and Shalon Hurlbert of Bremerton. She is survived by her three sisters and their husbands, Bobbette and Ron Halterman and Joan and Ray VanZon of Sedro-Woolley and Jean and Mike Miller of Burlington along with many nieces and nephews.
Beth was raised by educators and had a passion for reading and learning and was often reading two or more books at once. She enjoyed travelling and the ocean was a favorite destination, where she could throw rocks in the water and smell the sea air. Her long-lasting friendships and close-knit family are a testament to the love and care which infused all her relationships. She could often be found walking the local trails and she blazed a path through life with smiles and kindness and is an inspiration to her family and friends. Beth is a treasured mother and wife and will be sorely missed.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Whatcom Hospice Foundation and the Lighthouse Mission of Bellingham as well as the Esophageal Cancer Awareness Association of Boston.
