WALLACE, Deanna Jane Born August 4, 1943 in Glendale, California, passed October 11, 2016. Deanna, "Dee", settled in Santa Rosa in 1981 where she became involved as a volunteer at her sons' schools, particularly Mark West Elementary where she was a School Board Member for 16 years. Dee retired from a fulfilling career at the SRJC Training Center in 2009. She enjoyed ice skating with friends, her granddaughter, and in local shows and competitions. Special to Dee were weekends away on Sonoma County's North Coast for bluff walks and volunteering as a Seal Docent during Pup season. She was a loving and devoted mother and wife who is already missed and left too soon. A special thank you to everyone who helped and comforted Dee and her family during her years with ALS. Dee is survived by her husband of 51 years, John, her sons Dean and Glen, and grandchildren Laurel and Liam. A Remembrance will be held for Dee on November 12, 2016. A donation to the ALS Association or MDA in lieu of flowers would be appreciated.
