Obituary for BESSIE VIRGINIA WALLACE
Bessie Virginia Wallace entered into eternal peace on Monday, January 16, 2017 at the Calvert County Nursing Home, Prince Frederick Maryland. She was born on November 9, 1927 to the late Wheeler and Lillian Lane Watkins.
Bessie attended Calvert County Public Schools. She was united in Holy matrimony to the late William C. Wallace.
She enjoyed attending Peter’s United Methodist Church where she served with the United Methodist Women and sang on the Senior Choir, her favorite hymn was “Will the Circle Be Unbroken.”
Every Saturday you could find Bessie at the yard sales with Sarah and Nellie. She loved fishing and crabbing and cooking dinner on Fridays for her family or anyone who stopped by. One of her favorite past-times was watching soap operas (her favorite was the Young and the Restless).
She loved cooking and passing along her knowledge to the future generation of her family. At the Nursing center she played a mean game of bingo.
She leaves to cherish her memories: her adopted daughter, Sarah Johnson (Lester); granddaughter, Tonja Dare (Richard); great grandson, Richard Dare Jr.; godchildren , Agatha Dunscomb (Terry) and Darryl Dickson; nieces and nephews, Cecilia Simms, Rachel Contee (James), Lily Pearson (Robert), George Watkins Jr. (Oveta), Gertrude Watkins, Mabel Smith (Sherman), Charles, Wendy and Michael (Beverly) Watkins, Eva Mackall and Janet Hawkins; four brothers in-law, Thomas Wallace (Mary), Russell Wallace (Gloria), Denneth and Melvin Wallace; three sisters in-law, Viola Henderson, Frances Parker and Joyce Howard (Frederick)and a host of great nieces, great nephews and friends.
