Patricia Jane Wallace was a beacon of compassion and love, a creative soul whose warmth radiated throughout the community of Sapulpa, Oklahoma. Born on October 30, 1946, in Muskogee, Oklahoma, Patricia spent her formative years in Gore before moving to Sand Springs. Her journey on this Earth, filled with a lifetime of giving, creativity, and love, came to its peaceful conclusion on November 5, 2023.\n\n\nPatricia was a homemaker in the truest sense, not just maintaining her own home but also weaving a strong fabric of community. A loving widow, she had shared 45 cherished years with her late husband, Charles Wallace. Together, they raised their sons, Jim & wife Amanda, Richard & wife Anne, and Michael & wife Michelle, who survive her. Patricia's life was an embodiment of the quote, "The heart of a volunteer is not measured in size, but by the depth of the commitment to make a difference in the lives of others." She was an active participant in the Happy Hands crocheting club and Life Senior Services, often volunteering at local nursing homes. Her hobbies ranged from crocheting, crafting, knitting, sewing, and solving puzzles, to reading, and she never hesitated to teach anyone who wanted to learn. Her two beloved dogs, Milo and Little Mister, brought her immense joy and companionship.\n\nPatricia's legacy is not defined by the years of her life, but by the life within those years. She taught us the beauty of a life well-lived, inspiring us to be more compassionate, creative, and loving. Her spirit lives on through her 3 sons, 5 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren, and all those whose lives she touched, even as she is reunited with her parents, James and Wauhilla McMahan, and her husband, Charles. Patricia's profound impact on those around her will never be forgotten.\n\nFriends and family are invited to gather and share memories of Patricia on Thursday, November 16, 2023, at 6:00pm CST at the Dillon Funeral Service, 1200 North Cleveland Avenue, Sand Springs, Oklahoma, 74063.
