Jean Ann Wallace of Grace Village Retirement Community in Winona Lake, Indiana passed away at 3:13 a.m. on Tuesday, June 27, 2023, at Grace Village Healthcare at the age of 78.
She was born on March 9, 1945, in Argos, Indiana to Alberta Caroline (Snyder) and Raymond Devoe Middaugh. Jean graduated from Argos High School in 1963. On March 8, 1968, she married Frank Eugene Wallace. They were blessed with almost 38 years of marriage together before Frank passed away on February 26, 2006.
Jean lived for the past 53 years in Kosciusko County, Indiana where she had resided in Warsaw and Milford. For many years she escorted trailer homes and later worked for the Free Methodist Publishing House in Winona Lake for about 15 years. She was a member of Winona Lake Grace Brethren Church and enjoyed her friends and fellowship as a member of the Red Hat Society. Jean spent most of her time doing many arts, crafts and baking. It was always said that what her legs couldn’t do, her hands could!
Jean dearly loved her family and always put them first. Always there to help when needed, her kind heart and caring nature will always be remembered. She was a loving mother, grandmother, sister and friend who will be dearly missed.
She leaves behind her daughter, Teffinie (Dan) Bontrager (Syracuse, IN); step-son, Steven Wallace (AK); and three grandchildren, Amber, Megan and Richard. Also surviving is her sister, Carolyn (Rich) Eicher (Leo, IN); two brothers, Charles (Rita) Middaugh (Argos, IN); Carl (Jill) Middaugh (Bourbon, IN); and sister-in-law, Sharon Middaugh (Plymouth, IN). She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Frank, step-daughter, Sherry, and two brothers, David and Steven Middaugh.
