Janice Lynn Wallace lost her battle with ovarian cancer July 6, 2006, at Palm Desert, Calif. She was 67.

Janice was born Nov. 10, 1938, in Oakland, Calif., to Lloyd and Evelyn Moller. She moved to South Lake Tahoe in 1979 with her husband, Donald Wallace, and their three children, Wendy, Michael and Mark. They moved to Genoa, Nev., in 2005. They were in the asphalt and concrete business for more than 27 years together. Janice was also an interior decorator and home designer. She had a talent for creating beautiful homes, having done many in her lifetime.

Janice was a loving wife to her husband, a loving daughter to her parents, and an absolutely wonderful mother and grandmother. She touched the lives of all who had the opportunity to know her. She will be missed by so many.

Janice is survived by her mother, Evelyn Moller of Pleasanton, Calif.; her husband of 46 years, Donald Wallace of Genoa; brother, Jack Knox of Palm Springs, Calif.; daughter, Wendy Wallace Dunn of Palm Springs; sons, Michael Wallace of South Lake Tahoe and Mark Wallace of Pleasanton; and her four grandchildren, McKenzie Dunn of Palm Springs and Christopher, Kyle and Kade Wallace, all of South Lake Tahoe.
