Anne Wallace passed away at her home in Islamorada last night. She left us peacefully in her sleep. Our hearts go out to her daughter Marianna Wallace and her son Jack Wallace and all those that knew her and loved her. She has gone to join her love John Beckham, aka Johnny B.
The following story is from her friend Tamara Thoel:
"It is with a very very sad heavy heart that I have to let my friends know that Anne Wallace has unexpectedly passed away. I apologize for possibly telling you like this but it is impossible to contact all of you, for that I am sorry.
Anne was very loved by many and has touched too many hearts to begin to count and will be missed by many many people. I have known Anne for almost 25 years and we became fast friends and roommates, heck she was my sister, without the blood. We had many many fun and interesting adventures. Definitely, partners in crime. One thing that comes to memory and we just talked about was driving down alligator ally over 20 years ago, I was driving, twins were in back, and an alligator stopped in the middle of the road. I slammed on the brakes, looked at her and said, "I'm not getting out", she just laughed and laughed. That's how Anne was, very fun loving, kind hearted, loved life, and would do anything for you!
I loved Anne with all my heart but I know she's not hurting anymore as she is dancing with the Angels or sitting on Jesus' lap smiling down on us., waiting for us to show up when it is our time to go home! I love you, Anne, more than you know, I already miss your vibrant personality and quick laughter. Say "Hello" to all my friend's and my family, as I know they have already greeted you, give them a big big hug and kiss for me. I will see you whenever it is my time to go Heaven. Rest in Peace, my old and dearest friend."
