Obituary of Julie T. Wallace

Julia “Judy” Fae Wallace, 83, of Ocala passed away on June 12, 2022. Judy was born in Ocala, FL October 30, 1938, to Fae Turner and Burke Turner. Judy was a baptized member of the First United Methodist Church of Ocala. Judy was raised in Ocala with her sister Martha alongside her closest childhood friends Charlotte Ott and Kaki Burgess. She attended Ocala High School enjoying many social activities including volleyball, Key Club, Thespian Society, and cheerleading. After graduating high school in 1956, she continued her education majoring in Home Economics at Florida State University, becoming a member of the Tri Delta sorority, and was a cheerleader for the Seminoles football team. Judy also found love in Tallahassee with a football player named Arthur “Lou” Louis Wallace II and got married after graduating college. They traveled around during Lou’s service in the Marines for seven years, spending three of these years immersed in the culture of Japan living in Yokosuka. Judy pursued her creative passions while raising her three children Sylvia Fae, Arthur “Tripp” Louis III, and Gregory Wallace. Upon returning to the U.S. after Lou completed his military services, they settled in Jonesboro, GA where Judy started her career in real estate. Judy was proud of her work as a realtor and real estate broker fondly speaking of how much she enjoyed helping people. Judy took pride in everything she did from being a matriarch to a real estate broker and realtor. Eventually, she settled her family’s roots near her hometown of Ocala, building a house on Little Lake Weir in 1979 that would become more than a family home hosting get-togethers with close family friends for over 40 years. Judy loved her friends and family who also much loved her in return. She loved spending time with her loved ones by hosting get-togethers and celebrations. She will be remembered for her infectious smile and laughter. Judy would love to sing songs while getting ready for celebrations and holidays cooking in the kitchen. Judy’s positive outlook on life resonated with a quote from one of India’s greatest authors and poets, Kalidasa, “Yesterday is but a dream, tomorrow is only a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope.” Judy will forever live in the hearts of her loved ones and may she rest in peace. Judy is survived by her children Sylvia Fae Wallace, Arthur "Tripp" Wallace III, Gregory Turner Wallace, also grandchildren; David Wallace Mowrey, Matthew Turner Mowrey, Megan Laurel Ditchfield, Karli Fae Wallace, Halie Nicole Wallace and great-grandchildren; Lillian Elizabeth Mowrey, Cameron Lou Mowrey, Jackson Ray Mowrey, and Olivia Sailor Mowrey. The funeral service will be held on Friday, June 24, 2022, at 11:30 a.m. at the First United Methodist Church Chapel in Ocala, FL. There will be a graveside service at Highland Memorial Park following the church service. Arrangements entrusted to Hiers-Baxley Funeral Services, 5946 SE Robinson Road, Belleview, FL 34420.
