In Loving Memory of Linda Lou Cooper Wallace

Linda Wallace was born on December 9, 1948, daughter of John and Easter Belle (Kuhn) Cooper in Oak Hill, Ohio where she resided for the majority of her life. She attended Jefferson Local elementary and Oak Hill High School, graduating in 1966. She married her childhood sweetheart, Dennis Eugene Wallace on December 16, 1967. This union was blessed with two sons who were the love of her life– Jason Scott and Jeffrey Alan. She was always a loving wife and mother.

Linda earned an associate degree in accounting in 1989 from Rio Grande College and worked several years in accounting, but she is best known locally for the time she spent employed at the Oak Hill Library. Being naturally outgoing and friendly, she was well known and liked by everyone who knew her. For many years she was a member of the Old Country Church Tabernacle where she was not only married but also was baptized and had her sons christened.

In August, 2017, Linda was diagnosed with small cell carcinoma and immediately underwent intensive radiation and chemotherapy treatments. Her body lost the battle against the intrusive enemy on April 30, 2018, but won the war over death, surrounded by her loving family, going peacefully to sleep and rest from her suffering, pain and the troubles of this life and spiritually crossing over into eternal victory and her reward with Christ.

She is survived by sons: Jason (Jenny) Wallace, Jeff (Emily) Wallace, grandchildren: Elijah, Amelia, Anna, Leah, Oscar and Malina, mother: Easter Cooper, sisters: Sherry Jenkins, and Cathy Cooper Wood, nephew: Troy Wyant, great-niece: Abby Wyant, and a myriad of extended family members and friends. Her absence will create a void where memories of times shared with her will live forever in our hearts and we will be, unexpectedly, transported by a smell, a smile, a melody, a breeze,...forever.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Dennis Wallace, and her Father, John Cooper.

Calling hours will be held on Friday, May 4th, 2018 from 4-8PM at the Lewis & Gillum Funeral Home of Oak Hill. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, May 5th, 2018 at 12:00 PM at the Old Country Church Tabernacle with Pastor Bryon Carmon officiating. Burial will follow at Monroe Cemetery. Online condolences may be sent to
