Judith Wallace

April 29, 1940 — December 23, 2015

Judith L. “Judy” Wallace, 75, passed away peacefully at 2:30 p.m. in her home surrounded by her family after a courageous battle with cancer.

Judy was born April 29, 1940 in Ashland, Ohio to the late E. Philip and Ruth (Ashman) Lersch.

She often enjoyed outings with her Red Hat Society, doing puzzles, spending time with her family and good friends, but especially making other people happy as she was such a nurturing and selfless person.

Philip (Jean) Lersch Jr., St. Petersburg, Florida, David L. (Dorothy) Lersch, Archbold, Ohio, James H. (Jane) Ledman, Columbus, Ohio; along with many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, sister-in-law, and her loving husband of 52 years.
