Renee Charlane Wallace

January 11, 1958 — July 1, 2024

Renee C Wallace, beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away on July 1, 2024, at the age of 66. She was born on January 11, 1958, in Flint, Michigan, and most recently resided in Santee, CA. 

Renee cherished her family above all else, finding immense joy in the presence of her son, LeRoy Wallace II, and her grandsons, Carter and Caleb. Family gatherings and holidays were particularly special to her, and she delighted in creating meaningful memories with her loved ones. Even so far as to dressing up as the Easter Bunny for the pure joy of her grandsons. She would do anything to bring a smile or laughter.

Renee also had a passion for jewelry and furs, which added a touch of elegance to her life. Renee met the love of her life, LeRoy Wallace at the El Cajon Speedway and was later married to LeRoy Wallace on November 27, 1976. The wedding was a celebration of familial love, as all her sisters stood by her side as bridesmaids. Their first home was here at the same property as where her celebration of life will be held in La Mesa California. They gave birth to their son LeRoy Wallace II March 4 1978 and he was the focus of their whole world. 

Renee's proudest accomplishment was undoubtedly her son, LeRoy Wallace II, whom she loved unconditionally. LeRoy could absolutely do no wrong in Renee's eyes, even though many stories told by friends come to another conclusion. Still her love was undeniably abundant for him. The only thing she ever asked of LeRoy was for the gift of grandkids. Even so far as promising to buy him a motorcycle.  So after making her wait five years after marriage... Carter was born, Renee gave LeRoy a small toy motorcycle and giggled. She was overjoyed to become a grandmother to Carter and Caleb, and her love for them knew no bounds. 

Elvis Presley held a special place in Renee's heart, as she was a devoted fan of his music. She found comfort and solace in his songs throughout her life. Beyond Elvis, LeRoy remembers his mom playing over and over the song "Mama's don't let your babies grow up to be Cowboys." by Waylon Jennings & Willie Nelson. 

LeRoy and Rennee Wallace relocated to Sandy Oregon in 1991 and their son started his freshman year of high school at Sandy High. Another proud accomplishment for both Renee and her husband as they attended every high school football game their son played in and kept every program or newspaper clipping that was available. 

Additionally, Renee served as the President of the Optimist Club, making a positive impact on her community through her leadership and contributions. She devoted herself not only to her son and family but was an incredible hard worker while working full time and taking care of her husband until he passed away in October of 2005.

Sadly Renee was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2012 and Renee's sister, Pam, played an integral role in her life, providing exceptional care for Renee after she was diagnosed and needing more care. Pam selflessly moved her to California in 2015 and ensured that she received the utmost attention and support until the end.

Renee will be remembered for her incredible capacity for love, forgiveness, and nurturing. She was a dedicated and hardworking individual who always put her family first. Her son, LeRoy, learned from her example and became a loving and compassionate man himself. Renee's impact on her family and community was profound, leaving behind a legacy of love and devotion.

She is survived by her son, LeRoy Wallace II, her grandsons, Carter and Caleb, her Mother Delores E. Crosset and her siblings, Jim, Pam, Mickey, Joe, Susan, and Beth. Renee's brother, John, preceded her in death.

A devout Christian, Renee found strength and guidance in her faith. Her beliefs served as a guiding light throughout her life.

In honor of her memory, a funeral service will be held on July 19th at 2pm at Life Point Church, 5480 Lake Murray Blvd. La Mesa California 91942.

Renee C Wallace will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her, but her love and spirit will continue to live on in the hearts of those she touched.
