Obituary for Robert Arden Wallace

Robert A. (Bob) Wallace was the middle child of Lloyd McCune Wallace and Lois Moore Wallace. Bob was born January 26, 1928, in Weldon, Iowa, and passed away on September 8, 2018, at the Mercy Hospital in Springfield, Missouri, due to pulmonary fibrosis and pneumonia.

Bob and Selma (Jean) Gardner were united in marriage on August 12, 1950. They were later blessed with three children, Patti Jean of Pella, Iowa, Beverly Rae of Salina, Kansas and Robert William (Bill) of Norco, California. In 1964, Bob and Jean were blessed with 3 additional children, Nancy Kay of La Vista, Nebraska, Karen Lynn of Ray town, Missouri and James Todd of Ames, Iowa due to Bob’s sister’s untimely death.

Bob served in the Army of Occupation under General McArthur in Japan after WWII, then returned home in 1947 and started his career in his early married life as an Iowa Highway Patrol Officer and worked in his later years as a banker.

Bob and Jean primarily raised their family in Osceola and Mitchellville, Iowa. They then moved to and retired in Bella Vista, Arkansas and spent their later years in Marionville, Missouri at the Ozarks Methodist Manor surrounded by dear friends and care staff that they lovingly considered family.

Bob was preceded in death by his wife Jean on June 23, 2015, and is survived by their six children, seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Bob’s family is comforted in knowing that because of Bob’s strong faith, he is home with the Lord and with his beloved wife Jean.

Memorials may be made to the Christian Opportunity Center in Pella, Iowa.

A graveside service under the direction of the Kale Funeral Home in Osceola, Iowa, will be held at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, September 14, 2018, at the Maple Hill Cemetery in Osceola.

Local arrangements are under the direction of the Williams Funeral Home in Marionville.
