Jean Wallace

April 21, 1927 — August 15, 2023

Cleveland, TN

Clara Imogene (Jean) Wallace went to her heavenly home on August 15 at the age of 96. She was a member of First Baptist Cleveland and the Gleaners Sunday School Class. She was born in Bradley County and lived in Cleveland most of her life. She was a graduate of Bradley Central High School, Class of 1946, and Erlanger Hospital School of Nursing, Class of 1949. She loved music and taking care of people. She loved her family and was always there for them. Spending time with them was her favorite thing to do. They were the love of her life. Her countenance would change tremendously when she talked with her grandchildren or great grandchildren or when they visited. She loved being outside in the yard taking care of her flowers, reading, working puzzles, and feeding the birds.

Preceded in death were her parents, William Harvey Brown and Maude Moyer Brown, husband James E Wallace Sr., son-in-law William Robert (Bobby) Smith of Franklin, TN, four brothers Clarence, Hubert, Paul, and Jack Brown. Two Sisters Ruth Wallace and Inez Davis.

She is survived by her son, James E. (Mike) Wallace Jr (Marsha) of Cleveland, daughter Lisa W. Smith of Franklin, TN. Three grandchildren Lindsay Coleman (Craig) of Franklin, TN, Trey Smith (Allison) of Nolensville, TN, and Abby Torres (Andrew) of Hurst, TX. Five great-grandchildren, Macy and Jake Hester of Franklin, TN. and Rhett Torres, Colton Torres and Clara Joy Torres of Hurst, TX, and many nieces and nephews.
A special thanks to friend, Carol Hunt, for the care and friendship she provided for Jean. The staff of Legacy of Cleveland for the loving care they provided for her.

The visitation will be Friday, August 25 from 12 to 2 at the Cleveland Chapel of Companion Funeral Home. The Celebration of life will be at 2:00 with Rev. Jim Gibson officiating. Pallbearers will be Bill Brown, Larry Davis, Carlon Davis, Rick Jenkins, Tom Reese and Andrew Torres.
