She was born and raised in Midway PA to Joseph W. Wallace and Margaret Eller Wallace. At the age of 6, her mother passed. Her father remarried and she looked upon Margaret Brimner Wallace as her second mother.
In 1948, she married Glenn O. Bedillion and had 4 children, Donna (David) Reedy of Wiggins CO; Glenda Starrett of WV; Robert (Sandra) Bedillion of Avella PA; Barb Donohue of Thornton CO.
In 1984, she moved to Phoenix, AZ and became an In-Home Care Associate. In 1988, she drove her clients U-Haul to Grand Junction to continue their care. Following their deaths, she continued the profession of home care and built very close relationships with those that she cared for. She became a member of Covenant Presbyterian Church and maintained her Christian faith through the end of her life.
Subsequently, she moved to Ft. Lupton CO, later living in Brighton, Broomfield and finally in Thornton CO.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph W. Wallace, Margaret Eller Wallace, Margaret Brimner Wallace, in-laws W.K. and Eva Bedillion and brother-in-law James (J.D.) Norris.
She is survived by her 4 children, her sister Barbara (Kay) Norris, her grandchildren Kenneth McElhaney III, Carrie Reedy, Sunny (Reedy) Strohfus, Jessica (Bedillion) Pace, Dilanne Bedillion, Shaun Donohue, Billy Starrett, Greg Donohue and numerous great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
She was most known for her playful humor/sarcasm, teasing, her love for others, baking cheesecake and pizzelles for family and friends, never met a stranger, love of cardinals, helping others, telling others what to do and singing hymns.
Long time favorites were her horse - Babe, cutting Christmas trees from the neighbors field, pulling out her son’s plants and visiting many covered bridges.
After moving out west, she was able to do a lot of traveling, which she loved.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child.
