Obituary for Mary Eunice "Mimi" Wallace

Mary Eunice "Mimi" Wallace, 99, of Boonville, passed away peacefully at her home on December 22, 2018. She was preceded in death by her parents, William & Docia Sisk; husband, Clarence Wallace; daughters, Barbara White and Charlotte Barr; sisters and brother in laws, Lois & Clarence Shelton, Mamie & Ragie Peyton; sister, Blanche Sisk; and brother, Garnet Sisk.
Eunice was born on October 29, 1919 in Dawson Springs, Kentucky. She graduated from Nortonville High School in 1937 and married Clarence Wallace in August of that same year. Eunice worked at Briggs for 3 years making parts for airplanes while her husband was away fighting in WWII. She also worked at GE for 23 years until, as she said, Singapore took their jobs. Eunice enjoyed her 14 years at WCSC and 15 years at Buehler’s BuyLow as the Demo Lady where she made lifelong friends. She was a member of Main Street General Baptist Church, where she held the positions of Secretary and Treasurer of the Pioneer Sunday School Class and was a member of the Sunshine Missionary Circle. Eunice was also a 25 year member of Happy Homemakers of Warrick County.
Eunice loved to garden, make crafts, sew and cook, but nothing brought her greater joy than her grandkids and great-grandkids. She loved that some of the great grandkids would come to her house each morning to get on the bus and in the afternoons she would have their favorite food waiting for them when they got off the bus. She was a huge Kentucky Wildcats fan and never missed a listening to a basketball game.
Eunice is survived by her sister in law, Edna Sisk; son in law, Phillip Barr; grandchildren, Cheryl (Leroy) Youngblood, Susan (Jack) Stephens, Krista (John) Cohoon, David (Melissa) White, Douglas (Kati) Barr; great grandchildren, Anisha Hensley, Arial Young, Cheyann Youngblood, Shane Stephens, Lily Cohoon, Drake Cohoon, Olivia Barr, Maggie Barr; nephew, Ron (Barbara) Peyton; niece, Carolyn (Mark) Simonds, as well as six great great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
The family would like to give a special thank you to Sharon Hagenseiker, Kathy Merrill and Jennie (Ron) Garrison for always looking out for her and offering their help and friendship.
Services will be at 10 am Friday, December 28, 2018 at Koehler Funeral Home in Boonville Indiana with Pastor Rodney Sloan officiating. Burial will be at Maple Grove Cemetery in Boonville.
Visitation will be from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm on Thursday, December 27, 2018 and again from 9 am to time of service on Friday.
Koehler Funeral Home of Boonville, Indiana is entrusted with care.
