Eda ‘Dolly’ Wallace
 
Funeral services for Eda “Dolly” Wallace were held April 6, 2010, at the Rest Haven Funeral Home-Rockwall Chapel followed by interment at Rest Haven Memorial Park.
 
Mrs. Wallace died March 31,  in Rockwall after a long struggle with Alzheimer's disease. 
 
She was born Nov. 27, 1928, to Italian immigrant parents Graziano Racioppa and Louisa Dimagno in Toronto, Canada.
Being the youngest girl in a family of 9, her five sisters would dress her up as their doll; this is where she acquired the nickname Dolly.
 
Mrs. Wallace, according to her family, was an extremely devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt and was  loved by all who knew her. 
 
She led a very active life, her family said, in support of her husband and children and always put others before her own wants and needs. She lived through the roughest of times and the best of times. She experienced life to its fullest and always made any situation she and her family were in the best it possibly could be. 
 
She loved to travel with friends and family and was blessed to be able to travel the world experiencing many different cultures and adventures.   
 
Mrs. Wallace is survived by her son, Kevin Wallace of Rockwall; daughters, Denise Kusturin of McKinney and Debra Curington of McKinney; grandchildren, Kirk Wilson, Kristen Wilson, Kali Janshango, David Murphy Jr, Conner Kusturin, Hayden Kusturin, Alex Curington, Carli Curington, Heather Wallace, Holly Wallace and three great grandchildren; sisters, Rose and Rita; brothers, Art and Eddie and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. 
 
She was preceded in death by her parents, her daughter Dina Wallace, husband Dewey Wallace, and sisters Helen, Pearl, Anne and Beatrice and her brother Charlie.
 

Memorial donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association and Hospice.
