Lou Wallace

March 22, 1936 — December 5, 2023


Lou Wallace, 87, passed away on Tuesday, December 5, 2023 at White Oak Manor in Burlington, NC.  A native of Memphis Tennessee, she was the daughter of the late Dr. Raymond Andrew and Hazel Hixon Wallace. 

Lou attended the University of Tennessee, married and reared four children before returning to Elon University to earn her Bachelor’s degree in religious studies.  She then went on to receive an M. Div and Th. M. in Pastoral Care from Duke Divinity School as well as a Doctor of Ministry in Pastoral Counseling from The Graduate Theological Foundation.

Lou loved to read, garden, teach, travel, go to the movies and visit with friends and family over a good meal.  She also enjoyed spending time with her two surviving children and ten grandchildren that live in different parts of the country as much as she could.
