On Thursday, May 11, a beautiful lady suddenly passed from this world. June Frances Wallace, 73, loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, (and too many other monikers to list), suffered sudden heart failure, and left this earthly plain for a place where she no longer struggles, or suffers from pain.
June was born on February 11, 1944, in St. Louis County, a daughter to the late Angus Otto and Ida Ruth (Williams) Enke. She was a graduate of Frances Howell High School, in St. Charles, and was a homemaker for most of her life.
One half of a twin set, June is preceded in death by her twin sister, Judy Danforth, three more sisters, and one brother. She was the last of the Enke family, that is now fully reunited in the hereafter.
She is survived by her husband, Wayne Wallace, 79, three children; Allen Wallace, Jim Wallace, and Kelly Wallace, four grandchildren; Zachary Wallace, Jessica Wade, Christopher Burnett, and Ethan Davis, and three great-grandchildren; Sean Hensley, Emma Jenkins, and Tucker Wade.
June loved life, spending a lot of her time doing crafts to keep her busy. She loved movies, games, daytime court shows, crossword puzzles, Dean Koontz books, and so much more. Though mobility was difficult, she tried to make the most of it, and cherished every day. Having lived in the Bland, Missouri area for over 25 years, she loved the country life and the quiet serenity that came with it.
On June 12th of this year, June, and husband Wayne, would have been married for 53 years, having married in Clayton, Missouri in 1964. Wayne claims "I must've done something right." She will be deeply missed by her family, and all those that knew, and loved her.
A memorial will be held at the residence of Jim and Kim Wallace, on Saturday, May 20th. It will be a barbecue pot luck celebration of a life that was taken from this world much too suddenly. Anyone that knew June, and would like to pay their respects, is welcome to attend.
June's family is asking for donations to help with cremation, and memorial services, in lieu of flowers, or other gifts. ("Flowers are pretty for a day..." - June Wallace) If you would like, please donate at
